Recent Monte Carlo simulations of the critical point of the restricted primitive model for ionic solutions are reported. Only the continuum version of the model is considered. A finite size scaling analysis based in the Bruce-Wilding procedure gives critical exponents in agreement with those of the three-dimensional Ising universality class. An anomaly in the scaling of the specific heat with system size is pointed out.
