I am pursuing OCA Certification and i have already cleared SQL Fundamentals Exams sometime back while I am in US.
I am planning to give 2nd exam i.e. DBA Admin 1 , so that i can earn OCA certification. I would be traveling to India and planning to do it from there, is there any specific advantage/disadvantage of giving it in India except for the cost.
I am assuming that pearsonview/certview site wouldn't care if i take the exam here in US vs India ... Am i right ? Also I have a voucher of 25%, can i use it irrespective of which i country i opt in for exam ?
In terms of certification, it does not matter which country you take the exams in. As you say, the costs will diff somewhat.
I wouldn't *think* the voucher would be country specific, but without actually seeing the voucher and reading any fine-print on it, I cannot say for sure.
The voucher shouldn't have any issues working across country borders because it is a discount voucher and not a pre-paid voucher. So, the cost of the exam does not matter. You'll receive 25% off the local currency cost in whatever country you take your exam.
