Regarding booking my centre for SCJP

I am a student in Canada. I am planning to take SCJP examination. I dont have prometric testing centre near my place. There is another testing centre called
"Pearson VUE" (http://vue.com/)
Which also list SCJP.

One more thing which confuses me is examination code.
If I log into the "Sun.com" site the latest exam and its code is
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 (CX-310-055)

But on "Pearson VUE" site, the SCJP exam name and code is
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 (212-055)
Is this the latest exam?

Please guide me to take the right exam.
Thanks

The exams are the same, but I understand that the 212-055 means that there is a student discount on the cost of the exam. I see that you are a student, so find out whether you are eligible for the discount. Ask at your college administration, perhaps they can help.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

Thanks for link Barry.

If I call their number they are telling me that I have to buy voucher which will cost me CAD 240. After that I have to pay USD 60 to book the exam.
I guess if I book the exam at prometric I just have to pay USD 240.

More over if I call the toll free number nobody is giving me clear information of how to get the SAI coupon or voucher.
