Can't register for the SCJD

I whipped out my credit card and tried to register for the SCJD, but was balked at every turn.

The Sun website forwarded me to the Oracle website, which said registration is down.

I went to the Prometric site, which doesn't have a test with the same number, but DOES have a test called the 310-027 Sun Certified Developer for J2SE. I'm suspicious, because the test I'm trying to take is CX-310-252A Sun Certified Developer for the Java Platform.

I called Prometric to ask if it was the same test, and they told me to call Sun. I called Sun, who forwarded me to Prometric without a response. I talked to the Prometric people again and asked if it was an assignment you take off-site and work on for a couple of weeks, and they said it's a closed book exam, that's all they could tell me. They suggested I go to the site ibt1.prometric.com, which didn't recognize my logon name, even through the password recovery system.

At this point, I don't think this test is obtainable. Does anyone know who you have to kill, to take the test?

Hi Cindy,

If you read the ScjdFaq you'll notice that this exam is split in 2 parts: the assignment (CX-310-252A) and the essay exam (CX-310-027). The assignment is something you have to download, make an application according to the requirements and finally upload. And then you have to take the essay exam, which is a written exam with 4 open questions (which you have to schedule and take in a prometric testing center).

Due to Oracle's acquisition there seem to be a lot of issues with the SCJD exam. You can read about it in a lot of recent threads: 1 2 3 4.

Kind regards,
Roel

Hi

Roel, do you mean to say that you don't have to register anything with Prometric for Step 1?

Thanks

Hi Christiann, im struggling to download the requirement, didnt get the voucher number yet.

I think you dont need to contact prometric for the first part.

There is a problem with purchasing this exam at the moment. I've been emailing Sun trying to find out what's going on and this is the latest reply I received:

Our sincere apologies for the confusion. Right now that exam is not available on IBT for immediate purchase and download. We expect it to be available in about one week. Sorry for the delay.



That was on March 20th, so hopefully the assignment will be available for purchase by the end of the month.
