Hi Everyone!

I have decided to extend the beta worldwide! The beta will now end on
March 6 (final date).

This will give you time to prepare for the exam and Pass

I am still working with Prometric to have all their worldwide testing
centers notified in a timely manner. Please be patient, while this
happens, since this announcement has to be communicated to all Prometric
centers in all Time Zones.

If you used a voucher to schedule your exam, and if you wish to move your test date to beyond February 13, you will need to contact Prometric to receive a new voucher. If that is the case, please follow these steps:

- Contact Prometric to cancel your existing appointment
- Send an email to <>, requesting a new
- Contact Prometric to schedule your new test date.

If you paid by credit card, you only need to contact Prometric to request a new testing date.

Why pay $49 for the SCJP 5.0 beta certification exam?

1. Evidence indicates that charging a nominal fee for the beta exam
narrows the pool of test takers to serious candidates. This provides
Sun with a better sample population from which we can make better
decisions such as passing scores, identifying unfair test questions to
delete, etc.

2. The beta exam price is 67% off the US list price of $150.
Furthermore, the beta price is set to only cover delivery costs; we are
not profitting by charging for the beta.

3. Beta test takers do receive value. Passing the exam provides you
with full Sun certification status, and you will receive a certification
kit, which includes evidence that you passed the exam, the right to use
the Java logo, etc.

Please let me know if you have any questions, send me a direct email to

Thank you.

As mentioned above, if you have any specific questions contact Evelyn directly:

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
