Hi, is it normal to take more than 30 days to deliver the SCJP certificate by mail? It is since 28 days and include this weekend would be 30 days. I know someone got his mailed in 15 days. I am very anxious! Is it a registered post or something? I really wouldn't like if someone taken it from my mail box and destroy it for fun. ;(

I don't remember how long mine took to arrive, but remember in the past 30 days there have been several holidays... This conceivably could delays yours a little bit...
I wouldn't worry too much yet. Remember, it's not the piece of paper that matters, just the fact that you passed. Congrats!!!

I think I got mine in that time frame. But realize it might take a little longer if you're outside the US or maybe they're a little delayed because of the Christmas/Hannakuh/Kwanzaa/NewYears Holiday.

Jesus Billy Tsai How many more certifications can you handle?
That's pretty good. I gotta get tips from you sometime.
