I have cleared SCJP 1.4, SCBCD (ejb2.0) and SCWCD...
I thought of taking the SCJP Java 6 upgrade but the 300$ exam fee shocks me...
should i go for it or the SCBCD (ejb3.0)...

I am tooo surprised at the exam fee for the upgrade too..

Ya the exam fee of $300 is too high....not even for the upgrade exam but also for the general exam...I work in a IT company in India and I get a salary of $90 per month..So the exam will take away more than 3 months salary from me....I will also have to arrange some cash for the Wizlabs mock exams....

Isn't there any competition on any site where you could win the Whizlabs mock exam for free.....if there is please tell me........

I think it costs less in india... like around 4000-6000... check the offers.
Regarding Whizlabs... i didnt use it for all the 3 exams i took... i did lot of practice and read the spec when ever necessary... Opinions differ based on how much time you can devote ... but this is what i did.

Good luck
I agree. Here's the link:
