I have recently schedule the exam for SCJP6 through Pearson VUE(1Z0-851). From books I have been study by Bert Bates,Kathy Sierra it writes that the exam duration is 180 minutes. On Pearson Vue page and in the Oracle official page it's writes 150 minutes. Why is this 30 minutes difference? Is anybody who has took the exam recently can tell me how much time is the exam?

As it has been said many times, the criteria and topics for the exam do alter; time compresion has been one of them.

According to the Oracle's website (OCPJP 6), the duration of the test is 150 mins.
