Hi,
I'm thinking of purchasing a bundle from Oracle website which has an exam voucher, an exam retake and Self Tests. I'm not sure that the exam vouchers will be working for OCA 8 (IZ0-808) or not. I am not able to confirm it from anywhere and I don't want to spend money on a wrong voucher.

Link to the bundle: Bundle

Should I buy this one, or just the regular exam voucher?

Thanks.

Haven't tried the bundle but the so-called retake voucher is 3 months from purchase. And your bundle link is for India only.

If you are to purchase make sure it's for your own country.

The 808 is covered according to the (India) link

Yes, I'm in India.

And after the purchase, I just put the voucher code in, when scheduling the exam on Pearson website? Just to make sure.
Thanks.

Yup do follow the Pearson instruction when registering the exam. Normally no payment is needed with voucher.

Thanks Tsang. I'll register for the exam today, and will be giving the exam this week.

Ray,
Thanks for the advice, but I think it's too late now. The bundle was only available on Oracle website and not on Pearson, and I have already made the payment.
I was actually hoping to give the exam coming monday, but now I don't think I'll get the voucher number till then.
Let's see. I want to give the exam ASAP.
