When to take test by?

Probably no one here knows this answer, but I figured I'd ask. I've been studying for the test but I want to take my time with this studying and make sure I am very thorough. What I am afraid of, though, is that they will change the test again in October or some time soon after and I'll be required to focus on changed objectives. Does anyone know if Sun is planning on changing the test again any time soon? If they are, then I might want to hurry up and take it as opposed to taking the extra time to study.
Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Rick

The only changes I've heard that Sun is contemplating is makeing the test adaptive instead of the way it is now with a fixed number of questions. If they make that change I don't think they will change the objectives of the test at the same time.
The other part to it is that Sun has said that they would give at least a 6 month notice before implementing any changes.

Oh that's cool that they are saying they will give you a 6 month notice. That's a relief. Thanks.
