There is now change in syllabus but the passing score is reduced from 71% to 61% and time is also reduce from 120 mins to 90 min.One more important issue, the code examples will be numbered that means now u may get a question which pin points error at some line number.For this only solution is really hands on exp of practice.
(For more details goto Sun Microsystem java site.

Hi Solomon
I think they want to test the speed.(I wonder why). As they have reduced the passing grade and reduced the time too.
I suggest that if you are prepared you won't have any problem and you should go for it. But if you are panic struck then postpone it to next week. I came to know 2 days ago..My first reaction was to go get the voucher and get get one of the centers to arrange for the exam before the I realized that I need a final 10 days revision be more sure about things..
The Questions bank is not expected to be changed a lot and another better thing for the examinee is that they will exactly state how many checkboxes to be picked if more the one is correct. What do you think.
So Good luck!!
