Hi,

For me I did not receive any voucher, I really start to wonder why SUN behaves in this way. For those who received the voucher, can you please tell me what was the email that you received the voucher from.

Thanks in advance.

Have to say this is so disgusting. It is not at all about the monetary value of the voucher, but as a concept, being the only one not receiving the voucher while all others received, is so so disgusting.

I sent a message to Evylen about this incident, but she didn't even bother to reply. Would some at Sun explain to me what happened?

Don't worry Khaled, you are not alone in your predicament. We still haven't received our free vouchers also. But we're still hopeful!

We'll keep you posted.

same as Adam I received my voucher and I registered my exam for SCEA5 on 22nd October.

I completed the survey on the first day of the pointed out period, this might be the reason.

Hello Candidates,

If you took the BP Survey and completed it and have not received your FREE voucher, please send me an email to evelyn.cartagena@sun.com. I am not sure why you did not receive it, it could have bounced or went to your junk mail, as these went out via email.

Also, the voucher is valid for any Java Certification exam valued at $200.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me, as I perfer you contact me directly, so I can help you.

Thank you.

Java Certification Program Manager

Got my free voucher this morning after following Evelyn's advice. (see posts above)

Thank you very much to Evelyn and Sun of course.

I'm thinking of using this voucher for SCBCD 5. How about the other ranchers here? What exam do you have in mind?

Or did you mean 2008? I think we all have the same expiration date for the free voucher. (which means less time to prepare)

Anyway, it's still a great feeling to be able to take an exam for free!

Thanks SUN!

Yep. As mentioned in the very first post in this topic, the survey was only available until Wednesday, July 25th midnight MST. Since that was over 3 months ago, the offer is well and truly over.

I asked you 3 days ago to fix your display name to meet the JavaRanch naming policy. To make it more explicit - your display name must have a first and last name. You can change your display name here.

Thanks, Andrew
