Hi Peng,

I want to ask in the beta exam :are there only multi select questions in it,not text input or drap and drop questions?

According to Mr. Berts' previous tips, I do think all 160 Qs are multiple choice Qs, however, I do feel that there are still possibility that we have text input and drap and drop Qs as they exist in SCBCD beta exam.
So, be careful!
Nick.

Hi Peng,

when you had so much certificates,was your company imporve your salary or position according to your certificates

All certs. are *forced* to obtain by my company, as when we get one project, say an EJB project, managers always tell our customers that their developers are *well-qualified* to take part in.
I just feel this is somewhat like selling points to outsiders.

should to ask you that what can got from these certificates(including finding jobs)?

I think I get more indepth knowledge from studying the *real* technology. For example, before I took SCJP 1.2 last Jan, I have written Java for 4 years, starting from Year 2 in the University time. Honestly, I just know how to code at that time, without really knowing why Java can do this do that. When I came to the cert. process, I feel that lots of things I did not know in the past.
And about the job hunting, I do not really think that certificates are useful nowadays, becos there are too many vendors, too many products, and too many certificates, which make the employees do not focus on these too much. But, it is very useful when I seek for part time jobs, like course instructors, becos usually, when you teach Java, they want the instructor to be a SCJP.
Hope this help.
Nick.

They haven't, to the best of my knowledge, announced any change, but given the experience with SCBCD, one never knows.

Hi Ko Ko,

All costs are paid by the company of course. Otherwise, it is impossible for me to get OCP becos I took it later than Sep 2002, which means I must take an Oracle Certified Course in order to get certified.
However, as you know, one OCP course is very very expensive! around 1500 USD per course!
The worst thing is that we always have only a limited time to get certified, while we still need to finish many tasks. For example, the company gives us only 1.5 months (including attend a 5-day training) to get OCP (4 exams required), which makes my life very tough!

Hi Peng,
what do you mean by 2-4 million? Does you mean 20k-40k or 2M-4M?
If it is the former one, the salary is quite normal as my salary is around 25k, and I have around 4 years working experiences with a MSc(CS) degree.
If it is the later one, the salary is quite high!!! seems only executive grade can get such a salary, rite?

Hi Manish,
Offically, the beta exam ends at Feb 6, 2004. However, according to Mr. Berts, assuming that SUN wants only X people taking the test as the sample, and since some people will not show up after getting the vouchers, SUN gives out X + Y vouchers.
Whenever, the number of people who take the test reaches X, the beta stop immediately. And thus, for example, if there are already X people who sit for the test on Feb 1, 2004, the exam will be stopped, and if you register to take the exam on Feb 2, 2004, sorry, the offer is over!
That's why we prefer to take the exam earily in order to make sure that we can take it. Ko Ko and I will take the exam on Jan 26, 2004.
Nick.

Hi Kelvin,
Although CISSP, CISA certs maybe more useful, at this stage, I wont consider them becos:
- my company does not need those professional at this moment and
- the most important, my company will not pay for me!
If they paid for me one day, I will take them definitely, or when one day, I feel I need those certs, then I pay it for myself.
Nick.

Hi Mikalai,

According to Mr. Berts and Evelyn, there should be total 160 Qs, with 5 hours. Please double check it.
This is the info provided by Evelyn:

Evelyn said:

The beta will be held from January 19 - February 6. There are 160 questions and I have alloted 5 hours total for responding to each questions and receiving your valuable comments. That way you have enough time to assess each question.

They are security-related certs and nowadays there is a very high demand on those who got those certs...
