Hi

As we know that now the SCJP exam will be conducted by Pearson Vue. So the exam pattern or the question type has undergo any change.

Please confirm the previous SCJP exam now becomes "1Z0-851: Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional Exam".

If anyone appears recently for the exam held by Pearson Vue, is Kathy Sierra book enough for the exam?? or other extra efforts need to be taken.

Thanks,
-Rahul

Thanks Mike!!

One thing i want to ask... Link that you have provided above shows the price of exam as $300, but when i bought voucher from Pearson Vue website it charged me $125.

This mismatch in pricing at Oracle site and Pearson Vue puts me in confusion.

Anyone have idea about it.

Also one more thing... what is the difficulty level of exam... Is it same as it was in case of prometric?

Please help!!!
