This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
There are obviously great benefits to being SCJA certified, but I guess what you are really looking for are discounts.
I don't know any formal discounts that Sun provides, but from time to time Sun does run promotions, from free beta exams, to free exams for people attending their conferences. Check the Sun website from time to time and you might get lucky.
Ok, sure. ^^ I was looking for a discount. Thanks for your advice, but I want to take the exam as fast as possible as I read your book and will now bridge the time between now and the exam with your mock exams.
