Any help or pointer on this will be greatly appreciated.

I took the 1Z-851 exam on 21 oct ,2011. Even if you have old but not expired SCJP voucher you can face oracles exam and have to take it via pearsonvue (it was prometic ). There are 61 questions and Passing score is 61% (you have to answer 36 questions correctly at least). 2.5 hours for exam.In my exam I didn't get a single drag and drop question.

Note: STUDY FIRST 5 SECTIONS IN Kathy Sierra's SCJP BOOK VERY CAREFULLY.

You might want to go for the upcoming JAVA 7 version , which is open for beta. You can save some money and be current on the tech front at the same time
