hallo java people,
just a couple of questions. here we go...
1) is there a deadline for the completion of the assignment after it's downloaded? can i pay the fee, download the assignment and submit it any time in the future (even in a couple of years)?
2) if you have the certification already, how long did it take you to get it?
cheers

Hi Alexandros,

1) is there a deadline for the completion of the assignment after it's downloaded? ...

Nope.

... can i pay the fee, download the assignment and submit it any time in the future (even in a couple of years)?

That's my understanding. The essay exam voucher however has a one year deadline. I waited to finish the assignment before purchasing the exam voucher.

2) if you have the certification already, how long did it take you to get it?

I started my design in early April and uploaded in late July. So for me roughly 3.5 months. It can certainly be done in a shorter time frame though.
Hope this helps,
Michael Morris

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
