The voucher is normally valid upto one year after purchase. The voucher is valid only only in the country it is purchased. Look at the terms and conditions available on the Sun web site appropriate to your country.

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

You can use the voucher to take exams anywhere in the world. I bought it in India but used it in US. All you need is the exam voucher code. Check prometric website for more details.

As mentioned, you can go to Sun's website and register there.. I think you need to create a login and select the exam you want to take. To purchase you might need a credit card. Once you submit, they will provide you with a coupon number. Keep this safe. Login to Prometric centre website, and schedule the exam. There are different time slots and you can also select the centre where you want to take the exam.
I agree. Here's the link:
