You pay twice for SCJD - once for the assignment, once for the essay. You can buy the essay here: https://www.prometric.com/Sun/default.htm. They don't have vouchers any more, you simply pay for the exam and schedule the appointment, all using this web site. They are also very responsive and helpful if you have problems.

does it mean the SCJD cost now $600 ?
I payed $300 for 310-252A
The SCJD contains an assignment and an essay exam, both have to be paid. That's something what didn't change after acquisition by Oracle. It was this way already when I downloaded my assignment in June 2007.
