48 business hours?!

I purchased the assignment portion of the exam two days ago. The email that Sun promised to send me so that I can download my assignment still has shown up. I went back to the order confirmation email and it says that the message will arrive within 48 BUSINESS hours. Come on, Sun, you can do better than that! 48 business hours translate into 8 canlendar days (assuming they don't work on weekends). That may be long enough for many of those on this forum to complete the whole assignment!

Isn't the whole process automatically handled by some computer program? This is a little difficult for me to understand.

So I am wondering how long did it take for you to get your assignment after you punched in your credit card numbers?

48 hours is not too long to wait, you can prepare for something else,
except if you were already know how to tackle this assignment.

Thanks, guys.

That email still hasn't come. But like what you said, I went to and login with my prometric candidate id from the scjp exam. I was able to download the assignment. I've got the Bodgitt and Scarper one.

Now the fun begins...
I agree. Here's the link:
