SCEA 5 will be out in March, (confirmed with SUN)

I wrote an email to SUN earlier this month asking about the current status of the SCEA 5 exam and here is the reply I got from them:

"The SCEA 5.0 certification should be out of beta testing and available commercially by March 2008. We anticipate that the current SCEA certification will be retired by the end of 2008."

So..... for those of yall who still want to complete the older VERSION of SCEA better start working NOW (including myself).

I have already passed part 1. Can I do the part 2, after the new exam is out?

Yes, you can until the older exam is available.

Will the two exam versions co-exist for a period of time before the old version is scrapped out?

Yeah thts for sure tht SCEA 5 is OUT.
But, but abt the material I think the old one would not be tht much helpful now.. some more topics are added to it.. I hav just started preparing for SCEA. But, since now the 5 version os out.. will give SCEA 5 only. Anyone having idea regarding SCEA 5 books.

Hi,
Is there a prerequisite of SCJP with specific Java version (1.2/1.4/5) to take SCEA 5?
I have passed SCJP in 2001 with Java standard edition 1.2. Can I take SCEA 5?
