Hi everyone,

I submitted my project in middle of December and took the essay on 12/27/08. Still haven't heard back from Sun. I sent an email to who2contact@central.sun.com 3 days ago. Still have not get a response from them. Does anyone know how long it normaly takes to get a result from them.

Thanks

From the Sun FAQ
After you have taken the essay exam, both your assignment and essay exams are matched up, and sent to an assessor for grading. Your exam results will show up in the CertManager database approximately four weeks after taking the essay.

Given that the four week timeframe is approximate, and there may have been delays over Christmas and New Year, that 4 week window would put an expected result sometime around early to mid February.

Thank you Andrew,

I read your book. It gives me a general idea about the scope of the project.
