Time between Registration and D/L avail

Hello all,

I am new to Javaranch, and have just started working on my Java Certs.

I passed the SCJP 1.4 this passed week and once I saw my score posted on certmanager I registered for the SCJD a few days ago.

I have my email confirmation from Sun, and see that my ordered cleared, however, I have not been able to get the download.

How long does it usually take? I am curious, because I would like to get it and work on it now since its an optimal time for me.

Also, I sent an email saying I could not get the d/l, and have yet to get a response. Have others had this experience?

Hi Michael,

Welcome to JavaRanch and this forum.

Normally as soon as you have your email confirmation (and sometimes sooner) you can download the file.

If you fail with your download (and later with your upload) you should be taken to a screen explaining that you don't have permission - this screen should also provide you with the email address of who to contact to get permissions fixed. They normally fix things within 2 working days.

Regards, Andrew

Oddly, 20 minutes after writing the post, I got my access email.

I agree. Here's the link:
