This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi Everyone, Well..... as of last night 233 candidates have taken the beta exam, I've had 2 cancellations, 31 no-shows. You still have until July 7th to study and take the beta exam. This is your opportunity to participate in a great exam, where you will view all the questions, give comments and get a free certification if you pass the beta! If you hold a voucher, please sign up today and take the exam. If for some reason you have not received your voucher or would like to still participate, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, candidate id number and email and I will resend you your voucher or send you a voucher that has not been used because of cancellation. I appreciate your participation! Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks. Evelyn
Java Certification Program Manager
Thank you for the timely information Evelyn. This really helps those of us who need to guage how much time we can take to prepare against the possibility of not making the 600 cut. I think a well-prepared beta test force will provide the best feedback for the exam. I'm scheduled for July 3 at 9:30 am EST, but will advance my schedule if I see the slots filling. Thanks again for everything you've done (upping the limit to 600, keeping us posted, etc.) to support the test takers.
