What is going on?

Is the registration today or next week?

And where is the link on 2test.com for the UK?

Hate to say it, but anybody who don't understand the previous posts saying the SCEA 5 Beta registration has been postponed till September 26, or can't go to Sun website and read the information there, will have a very hard time passing the exam. I would strongly advice against it... (architecting a system is way more complex than reading a post)

Why are you apologizing? I've had a similar reaction in several other threads...

As for inability to understand that it was postponed a week... I say encourage them to try. Lower scores by everyone else means it's easier for those of us who *gasp* understand simple instructions.

Hmm, I have just booked SCEA 5 beta, 311-052 exam in Leeds, UK using prometric. So have they decided to not postpone this exam or it this just some error that the exams can be booked now?

It depends on country - eg. there is 311-052 on exams list for Zimbabwe but not for United Kingdom.

I'm quite confused, I hope I have'nt just missed the registration :-(

I registered today (September 20th) through the website. No idea if the registration ends today or continues until the 27. When I registered all the September dates were unavailable at any location I tried, had to flip over to October before I saw any available times. I'm in the United States.

The telephone no. (0124-4147760) seems to be invalid.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance

Hi

I registered successfully on Monday morning 24th September using the Prometric Site. I choose a country and state, then choose Sun Microsystem and finally chose a test centre.

My exam is in London at XPertise Training Ltd, 75 King William Street, the very same place I took the SCJ2P five years ago. My first SCEA exam takes place on 15 October 2007 starting at 12:45. Is this correct that the exam last four hours and fifteen minutes?

Looking forward it. Know I must study. Good luck all

Its bad on Sun's part. Why do they update the certification page (http://www.sun.com/training/certification/java/beta_architect.xml) with new dates and don't follow that? The initial dates Sept 19-20 seems to be valid and I missed it. However I hope I can get an appointment now also.

Prasanna, In India I think you cannot book it online. Even though I could reach a couple of centers on phone they are asking me to walk in to the center to book.

Hi ranchers.
About registration:
Strange enough I was able to register for November 15th(last date available when I tried ) although according to the Sun site and to this thread the exam should not have been enabled.
My question is : should I reschedule for the last official date or should I just go with the date I registered ?
I am not sure whether I can do the test on the Prometric date or not. According to my Prometric account it is ok according to Sun info it is not.

Any clues ?
Thank you.
Mihai.
PS : I really could use some more time for preparation as I can only save 2h/day for SCEA (due to work).

I would strongly suggest rescheduling for within the time period mentioned by Sun - last thing you would want to do is to show up on the date you picked and find that they're not giving it anymore. (Moreso, since Sun is talking about Part II starting on November 21st, which would be the next week, and insufficient time for them to grade your exam to include you if you passed, given past beta exams.)

I booked the exam yesterday in Mumbai, India for 20th Oct. Thanks Kiran for helping out with the telephone number. I had to eventually call up the Test Site to register.

The next step is to plan on the study strategy. I've had no luck with the posting on -

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

am able to successfully register in LONDON. I directly call the given number n registered via phone.

There is no need to go to the Prometric Centre and tehy are very helpful in registerign on date / time as per our choice. SO i think in UK the registraion via phone is fine.

Any help required in this regard?

Thanks

Thank you Theodore. It is a wise advice but November 16th sounded so well ...
Guess you are right about this.
Rescheduled to last official date (and to another center unfortunately) in France.
Good luck with your and everybody's preparation.

Hi Sanjeev and Nagendra,

Call 0124 - 4517160 number and register to any of your interested prometric center in India. Also It would be good if you have email communication for confirmed registration. I have email communication.

Not sure whether today registration is possible or not, however try out.

hello,

I just tried for about an hour and failed repeatedly. After choosing a date it says:
Payment Information

An unexpected error has occurred while processing your request. We apologize for the inconvenience, please try again later. Please note: your method of payment has not been charged.

Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.

SCEA 5 beta was selectable and still is. Maybe it is too late now?

Will try tomorrow through phone, but then the 27th is definitely over.

FYI, I called in and registered and was told that you NEED to register by phone because it's a free exam. I don't know how true that is.
