i am just wondering as the information that i checked out few months ago were slightly different. now i kinda look on the website and oracle has taken over some information on the website?

my first post. haha

and was wondering if not mistaken it costs around 500 dollars for SCJP ? i live in US.

http://www.javaranch.com/certification.jsp

this page tells pay around 150 dollars ? i would take it if it is that cheap?

does anyone know if we can get discount from somewhere ? i am a student and my school does not have discount.

it could be by joining acm? ieee or something? good day.

They have something called a sun academic initiative (SAI). Look into that. I think that costs 40$

You can not register to SAI now. It is closed. Now, the vouchers depend on Oracle.

Well i think that you should send mail to the above mentioned email id which i have given and ask them to give SAI Program Id for your country, you will be able to get the discounted voucher...
