Difference between the JK0-010 and SY0-101 exam?

Is there any difference between what to study for these two exams? I ordered the Syngress 2nd Edition Study Guide from amazon:

and received this:

Notice the cover shown on Amazon is not the same that I received, but the ISBNs match.

    So its the same exam, only different prices depending on if you qualify for the JK0?

    Thanks!

    I believe the JK0 is the education version...

    I understand the JK0-010 and SY0-101 are possibly the same test but can someone explain the difference in price?

    I was quoted $165 to take the JK0 and $258 to take the SY0.

    Why the difference if they are the exact same test?

    JK0-010 is for CompTIA E2C members (for educators in schools who train people to go into IT).
    What is the CompTIA E2C program?
    The CompTIA E2C membership program was designed to meet the specific needs of IT educators in public schools, colleges, not-for-profit and government agencies that fund retraining programs.

    Unless that's you, you'll need to take the SY0 exam (sorry).
