I noticed Whizlabs offerred a $50 discount on exam vouchers: http://www.whizlabs.com/index.php?exam_id=15&country_id=&option=com_content&view=article&id=57&submit=submit

Is this a legitimate site? Is there any reason not to purchase from them?

Well since I'm in India, I can see the price of their voucher Rs.6500. And on Oracle's site the cost of SCJP is given at 125$ (in India) which is around Rs.5750 and you directly have to pay that to your prometric center, no need for a voucher. I don't see any reason for anyone in India to buy a voucher from them...

Whizlabs is a well-known reputable company that sells SCJP mock exam software, and this is not the first time I heard that they have an offer like this. So, yes, it is legitimate.

That was is written at Oracle homepage : "Candidates no longer need to purchase vouchers prior to taking an exam. Please pay Prometric directly for your exam during registration."

Now I'd like to clear that out too. Why is there still vouchers ?
