Can anyone explain to me why the cost of SCJP over here in the UK is so high? It's $150 for SCJP in the US, but for some reason it is �150 over here, roughly $277. I know our taxes are high, but this is ridiculous. I thought that was bad, but the SCJA is worse, $100 US or �150! From the sun website it says that US vouchers can only be used in the US too.
Other company certifications fare better, ie Microsoft $125->�88.
I had hoped to do SCJP just on a whim, to confirm my knowledge of java more officially. But at this price when other folks get it much cheaper?
i took the SCJP 1.4 last year (also in Belgium), price was 140 euro (excl VAT).
now the price for a full SCJP exam is 210 euro (excl VAT), so it's 70 euro more just to be "lucky" to answer some (buggy) drag-and-drop questions (your answers may disappear when you are reviewing such questions)
i think the cheapest solution is to have your company pay for it :-)
