You do have the correct website for Prometric. I just visited and I do see it on there, both on the academic track and the professional track. here's the instructions how I got to it:

- go to the website you mentioned. The link is correct.
- click Information Technology, scroll down, then click Sun Microsystems.
- on the right-hand side of the screen, click the blue "start" button
- click Schedule An Appointment
- enter your country and state/province and click Next.
- Sun Microsystems should be highlighted already; if not, click Sun Microsystems.
- select either the Academic Initiative or the Sun Microsystems track (in this case, I'm NOT selecting Academic)
- A list of notes will come up; click Next after reading.
- select exam 310-065 (Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, SE 6.0)
- Select your language and payment method, and click "Next."

After this I would suppose you will be "home free." You would need to choose a testing location and enter payment or voucher information. If you do not have a Prometric account, you will need to set one up. But this should get you through the issue you have been having.

One more thought: in what country are you located? Are there known trade embargos where a particular exam might not be available in your area? This would be a situation where you would want to call Prometric and discuss it with them.

Hi Ben, thank you very much for such a detailed instruction. if sun won't give me the export clearance today, i will definately buy the voucher from the prometric site. it's just too much trouble to work through with them. I came from China. But I'm a US citizen and live in the US now. My name is Chinese. But I don't think China is in any embargo list of America, right?

You shouldn't have a problem with export laws, then. I believe there are not current embargoes affecting U.S./China relations, but since you are a U.S. citizen, it would not affect you even if there were. It only affects purchases that take place in China.

I would bet it's a technical glitch. I'm sorry for all the trouble you have to go through just to get the voucher... Best of luck to you.

OK, looks better. Is pearsonvue.com new?
Is prometric dead for SCJP takers?
