I want to buy a voucher for essay exam.
When I order it online, after entering every information, I press order
but nothing happened.
Then I go back to the original page, I found the link disappear.
I don't know if I have ordered the voucher successfully.
I can't check my order status.

Does anyone buy Sun voucher online recently?
Do I need to call a representative to buy the voucher?

Hey, partner.

So, when I took the SCJP and SCWCD, I called Sun and asked for a voucher. They sent me an email, so I could pay for it. After, like, 10 business days, I had the voucher on my hand.
I already bought the second voucher for the SCJD, some days ago. What I did, I called Sun, they sent me the payment email, I paid, and after 2 business days, they sent me via email only the number of my voucher.
Call Sun and explain your problem. Ask if your request was successfully received, and if not, ask them to solve that to you.

Thanks for response.
I already bought a voucher online this morning.
It seems their server is down last night.
They also sent me a email with voucher number.
Do we just schedule an appointment and bring the copy of this email when we take the essay?
What's the net price? $300? I saw this on Prometric website when I plan to schedule an appointment?

Hey Lee.

So you are already going to take the essay exam, right?
I think it is pretty much like the other exams (I still didn't schedule mine, so I don't really know if there are any tricks here), where you schedule the appointment at the Prometric site, and take the exam at a Prometric center. So I think that if you got your voucher already, just schedule the exam at the Prometric site, and that's it. There's no need to take a copy of the email with you, since that on the day of your exam, they'll already be expecting you there.

But I don't expect receiving any real voucher.
cuz I ever read some posts here which said they didn't have their voucher on hand and just brought a print of purchase receipt when they took exam at Prometric.

I just bought the voucher for the second part of the exam, the essay.
I bought it from the sun website for $200. Why is it $300 at prometric web site that i do not understand.

Hi all ,
If you already get a voucher no., just use it to schedule for an exam. Prometric site will ask only a voucher no. not a printed paper of a voucher .
For anyone who want to buy an exam voucher, I recommend you to contact your Sun's local training center. You can check on "Training worldwide" page of sun to see how to contact your local sun.

SCJP 1.2; SCWCD 1.2,1.4; SCBCD 1.3; SCJD 5.0

The price $300 on Prometric website looks weird.
It seems we can only pay $200 because voucher gave us discount.

Thanks for the reply from all of you.
I agree. Here's the link:
