Hi Robbi Palacios,

I'm thinking about taking the exam on this 17th. Can you please tell me, how many days in advance do we need to book the date?

Also, how much does it cost to reschedule the exam?

Hi Kishore Balla,


Here's to answer your questions.

1. You need to register for an account in prometric.
Go to https://www.register.prometric.com/Login.asp Click new user.
After completing the details. You need to Login.

2. After that click Locate a test site then follow the procedure.

a. Choose your client and Program. (eg. Sun Microsystems)
b. You need to agree to Sun's License Agreement.
c. Choose the Exam you want to take (eg. 310-055) and the language
you want for the exam( eg. US English)
d. Then the list of all available Testing Centers will pop out.
Here you need to choose which testing center you want to take
your exam at. Choose the appropriate date for your exam.
e. Afterwards you need to enter your voucher number and you're
good to go.

2. It does not cost anything to reschedule the exam. You can change it anytime you like but it must be one day prior to the exam date.

To quote prometric per se,
"Exams must be rescheduled or cancelled prior to 6:00 PM Australian
Eastern Time (GMT +10:00 Sydney, Australia), one day prior to the exam date. Attempts to reschedule or cancel your exam without proper notice will not
be granted and you will forfeit the testing fee. There are two choices
to reschedule or cancel your exam:"

Note: It is important to call the Testing center and confirm
the schedule you wish to take your exam. Online registration
is not enough.

You have to actually call the testing center where you scheduled
your exam to confirm the date.

I scheduled my exam online at Prometric to be set on August 18, but
I did not call up the testing center to confirm the schedule. When
I decide to call later, all available slots for august 18 were
already taken.

So, I just rescheduled my exam to be on August 22 and confirmed it
at the Testing center. Lucky for me otherwise I could be taking my
exam at Mc Donald's instead.

Here in Hyderabad (India), there is no online registration/booking for the exam. I had to go to prometric center for registratoin.

I did that two days back and my exam is on 17th
