I haven't purchased a ticket/voucher from Sun yet. On the Sun site, the price for the SCJP exam voucher is $200. If you purchase directly through Prometric, it's $150. Why is this? Does Sun provide some study materials to account for the extra $50?

I have discovered the reason for this was that I accidentally selected "SUN Academic Initiative" program type instead of "SUN Microsystems". Oops.

nah it is true,
they quotes different prices.
recently my friend completed the exam and he said the same case.
when he received the credit card bill that he was only charged with the price shown on prometric.

WEIRD!

I believe SUN better clarify this and of course,
the damn DRAG AND DROP interface at the exam
(my friend is so pissed off by it i.e. if you click review, all your answered you dragged would be lost. doesnt sun developers how to use serialization??! KAKAKA )
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
