I took the Associate Exam for Java 7 a couple months ago (the 1Z0-803). Now I want to take the SCJPtest for Java 7 (1Z0-804) but I suppose it's not out yet? Anyway, I couldn't find it in the listing. So I think I will settle for the Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional Exam (1Z0-851). But when I looked at the price, it says 32,600 yen (about $400 at the current exchange rate).
When I took the 1Z0-803 I distinctively remember that it did not cost nearly that much. It was about 4,000 yen. But when I looked at the price of that exam just now, it says $300 (about 24,000 yen). What is going on? Why is the 1Z0-803 eight times as much as it was in December? Is the 1Z0-851 the SCJP for Java 6?
