Hello,

I've tried today to schedule an exam using the free voucher Sun gave out on participating in the SCJP 5 beta, and my prometric center said its expired

I've emailed Sunbeta@prometric.com, and got an automated message about the thing being forwarded to Suncert@prometric.com.

Has anyone experienced this? Anyone try using the voucher?

Thanks

Never received one. Did you get the voucher automatically after doing the SCJP 5.0 Beta? I remember that Evelene wrote that we were going to get one the in April/May timeframe but nothing turned up in the email.

It was a beta test (experimental) for SCJP for J2SE 5.0 before the regular one was released. It last for almost two month from Jan 2005 to March 2005. It was not free but discounted. I think Prometric sent a discount voucher for everybody how took the exam, then it decided to make it a free voucher. I've rreceived it (since I took the beta exam).

It's strange why didn't Barry receive the voucher. I suggest you look for it in Junk mail if you are using yahoo or sometimes Gmail. I received mine in the Junk folder!

Hello,

Barry, i think what Bilal said sounds plausible, do check your junk folders. If not there, email prometric or Sun.

Barry,

I just checked back the voucher was received on 8 April 2005. So, might be you have to check with SUN on this issue.

For your information, my friends who took beta with me together had received the vouhcers as well.

Hi all,

Only those who paid the $49 fee for the SCJP 5.0 Beta and completed the exam would receive the discount voucher. I didn't receive any voucher since I took the beta exam for free.
