I am have prepared for the SCJP(Sun certified Java Programmer 6) and now I want to schedule the exam. Through the exam provider (Pearson VUE) 2 exams are listed with the same name but different code. Both are called Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional Exam and the 2 codes are 1Z0-851 and 1Z0-851-JPN. In the official oracle page only the (1Z0-851) is listed and is 150 minutes instead of 180 minutes???. What is the difference with the 1Z0-851-JPN examination. Which one should I to choose? Sorry if this question is very specific and can't be answer.

I'm not sure, but my guess is 'JPN' exam might be in Japanese whereas other exam would be in English.

But, better get it confirmed from Oracle's certification department.
