I gave my exam yesterday and passed ... Yay !!! not too happy about the score though.

The # of questions were 60 and had 4 questions on Serialization which per revised syllabus should not be there on the exam. Is there a way to notify Oracle/Sun or Prometric about the testing centre and have them updated to the new questions set?

And a big thanks to Bert Bates and Kathy Sierra for writing such a wonderful book and making our learning process easier.

Hi,

Greetings!
I am planning to appear for SCJP 6 Exam this month end or by Sep 2010 Start.
I inquired about the availability of SCJP 6 vouchers in nearby NIIT Prometric center in Chennai, India.
I got the reply that Sun has stopped issuing SCJP vouchers and that there is no stock of vouchers in that center.If at all I have to buy, then I have to do it Online.
I want to finish the exam soon. Is it true that Sun has stopped issuing SCJP 6 vouchers to Prometric centers, Will they be called Oracle Java vouchers here on? Will here be any change in syllabus ?
Please guide me in completing this exam by giving advice to get the correct SCJP 6 vouchers from Prometric centers.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Meena

It is true that Sun has stopped issuing SCJP vouchers. You don't have to buy them online also. Recently, I inquired in a Prometric center in Chennai and I came to know that we can directly pay($ 150 = 7,200rs ) to the prometric center and write the exam. You can do this on the same day as you write the exam. Let me know if you have got any different info!
I'm planning to write the exam next week..

what you read on Oracle website is for the US people, every country has its own price, for example
United Arab Emirates same as US 300$
India 160$
Jordan 125$

I took the exam last September 3, 2010. Still 60 items and 180 mins. Regarding the question set and other info that oracle posted on there site, is true. I've got the brand "Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 6 Programmer" (not exactly sure if this is a good thing ).

The problem now is that my account on I7 Certification Database isn't updated until now. It's almost two weeks since my account got registered and no forms available for me yet. All I want is to be able to get the logo that I paid for

Serialization was removed more than a year ago. From what I've seen, people have reported for the past 5 or 6 months that they didn't get any question on serialization on the exam. Still to be sure you can contact your prometric center to see if they know about this...

the new link on the current SCJP can be found (a bit buried) in the oracle site:
Oracle's Sun SJCP 6 Page


Here you can find all the exam topics.
In addition, they offer 2 practice exams, (120 questions in total).
60 each. I would therefore deduce that the SCJP 6 exam should be 60 questions.

Thanks for the link. But I couldn't find the information regarding the two practice exams.
Can anyone tell about these two practice exams?

Many thannks,

Hi,

I am planning to go for OCP in next month. What is the cost of it and where can I find the prometric centers. There is no information about the prometric centers in India on Oracle's site. Please help.

Thanks,
Uttam Kumar

Hi Khumar,
As far as I know, India is not an embargoed country.
Go to www.prometric.com browse for IT Certifications --> Oracle --> and you will find all the information you need with regard to costs, existing testing centres, times/dates, et cetera.
I found this telephone number for Prometric India, under Asia/Pacific locale link:
"India / (Monday - Friday, 9:00 to 17:30 GMT +05:30) / 91-0124-451-7160"
You will need to know the code for the certification you will be writing.
Cheers
