Hi all!

I'm going to complete a path for the Sun J2EE certifications.
Tomorrow i'm going to take the SCWCD exam :roll:
The next certification i'm going to take is the SCBCD for the Java 5.0 edition (yes, i am a victim of the 'wait till the last one!' syndrome ).

Since i have no time to try the beta exam on the last date available, i'd prefer to wait until the final version of the exam will be released.

The perfect date (for me) to take the final exam is on the end of March.
Does anyone know when the final SCBCD 5.0 exam will be available?

Many thanks

My suspicion is that the regular version will likely be available in the March-April timeframe, given past experience where it takes eight or so weeks after the end of the beta process to have the final exam ready. So you should be on target, given your preferred timeframe.

I've done that previously - there's a restriction on how frequently you can take the exam if you don't pass, but the fact is, the beta will end two or three months before the final version is available, which gives you a safe margin.
