This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Just two weeks ago I checked out the Sun website for my SCJA voucher and was quoted $100. But today I'm looking at the website (which seems to have been revamped a bit) and I'm seeing a $300 price tag???
I think I know what your problem is. I guess you first went on the Sun website and saw thw price of $100. The second time you logged in it was the prometric site. The prometric site shows the price of SCJA as $300 but once you register on phone using your voucher number you get it for free(ofcourse you have to pay hundred for the voucher)

Wow , The SCJP 6 has the same price too, The most shocking thing is the SCJD price which is $ 375. Is it for real? If it is, I'm lucky because I bought the SCJD project assignment in about 2 weeks ago. Is it because the gas price?
My career path is IT Project Management, I work at a company that has standardized on Microsoft, and there are no test centers convenient to me. The entire concept of pursuing the SCJA was of marginal relevance and interest to me before, but the price jump clinches it. Too many more valuable certifications to pursue...
If anyone is interested in a copy of Cam's study guide, PM me.
