Here is from the e-mail I got from Sun's Troia Parson [Troia.Parson@central.sun.com]:
Hello,
October 4 2000 (is the date to start new test---added by VW)
Frequently Asked Questions for Revised Programmer 2 exam.

Q-Are the testing objectives different?
A- No. There may be some minor revisions for clarification but the testing
objectives will remain basically the same. We are still testing the same subject
matter
Q-Does the new exam cover the jdk 1.3?
A-There are no changes to the core programming language that we test on the
programmer exam.
Q-Is the new exam more difficult?
A-We have made every effort to keep the level of difficulty consistent with the
original Java 2 exam.

Q-Why is the pass score different?
A-To insure the level of difficulty is the same we needed to adjust the pass
score for the revised exam.

Q-What is a Borderline Survey?
A-There is now a survey at the beginning of the exam called a Borderline. This
survey allows us to collect information on the candidate's experience as a
programmer. That information is used to determine how are exams are performing.
In short, it allows us to create and maintain the highest standard in our
examinations. Giving honest answers to this survey is essential.
Q- What are the new Certification requirements?
