Hello. I scheduled the exam for December 5 - I got a receipt confirming that I will take the exam 212 - 035 SCJP1.4 under SAI.
Is this ok ?
I am a bit confused since this is my first Sun certification exam and I do not know if this is ok.
How do you recomend I should study until then ? I remember seeing distinct codes on the K&B book . Will that (already) famous book be useful in my case ?
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Better, faster, lighter Java ... you mean Ruby right ?
SCEA5,SCBCD1.3,SCWCD5,SCJP1.4 - memories from my youth.

Hello .
It is not mentioned under Sun but only at Vue Centers under SAI - Sun Academic Initiative and the issue here is that it is 3 times less expensive than the original Sun Exam. The exam on my receipt is "Sun Certified Java Programmer for platform 1.4" and code 212-035 (of course I kind of neglected the code untill I saw the K&B book cover on Amazon).
I have seen some other replies on this forum regarding the same topic and it seams to be ok with the major difference that I will not be allowed to use the SCJP logo on my resume or CV (in Romania) .
Is this true ?
If anybody knows better please tell me .
Is this ok for a SCJP 1.4 ?
Sara , thank you for your answer .
