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.

See also this Special Offer (if you are lucky). Probably better odds than your normal Lotto game.
I agree. Here's the link:
