I am preparing for OCPJP se 6 i.e. 1Z0-851 exam, I saw Oracle website today. When I search for Java SE 6 certification exams the result is:
Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 5/SE 6
Oracle Certified Master, Java SE 6 Developer
I couldn't find OCPJP se 6 exam. But again when I searched for Java SE 5 certification exams the result is:
Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 5 Programmer
However when I clicked on it, I am seeing the details about 1Z0-851 OCPJP Java SE 6 exam?
What does this mean?
Is this just some mistake?
This mistake was not there when I visited the site about a month ago.
So what exam should I take for Java SE 6?
Also I found something called e-practice questions by Oracle:

Do you suggest me to buy it?
I have already postponed this exam long enough. I just want to fix a date and write the exam now.

Site problems i believe
Under oracle certification page select 'Job Role' as 'Java Developer',
you see will 'Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 5' in the list. Click it and you will be redirected to 'Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 6'.
P.S 1Z0-851 'Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional Exam' is still available in pearsonvue

I think I am just going to write 1Z0-851 because I prepared for it.What about my question on e-practice exams that can be purchased from Oracle.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
