Hi All, I sent an email for the beta exam yesterday at register4beta@Central.sun.com and haven't heard back from them still. Does anybody know what's going on....are they all booked up or just slow to reply back? Thanks, Antra

I found it out. I just called up Sun at 1-800-422-8020. And they said they will be accepting only the first 250 applications for Beta. And they will email either ways (whethe you were in first 250 or not) telling you if you could be eligible for Beta exam or not. So I guess, I just have to be patient and wait for their reply. Btw, they have disabled their beta registration site just to minimize the load on the server due to excessive hits...as I am sure they probably got way more than 250 hits. Thanks, Antra
Hi Antra, I too sent an email to register for beta exam. still I didn't get reply. As our friend said, we may not come within 250th application. -chitra

This is the latest news from Sun : This voucher number is good only for the 311-025 beta exam. It cannot be used for any other Sun Certification exams. The voucher is also only good august 11 - August 23. If you do not take the exam by August 23 the voucher will expire and you will have to purchase a voucher in order to take the exam. Do not lose this number. On August 10, Prometric will begin registration for the exam. You will need to call the Prometric registration center in your region (see list at the bottome of this email) to register for the location, date and time you wish to take the exam. They will ask for the voucher number at that time. Please find the testing objectives attached to this email. These objectives are only slightly different from the existing objectives on our website. The content is still the same. Also attached to this email please find the introduction to this exam. Read through this carefully before you take the test. It will be posted at the front of the exam but you will be limited by time so it is best to read through it in advance. I do not have the exact number of questions for the exam yet nor the exact amount of time. It will be over 150 questions and approximately 4 hours. This information is only for the beta. The final exam will only have a percentage of these questions and be given in a shorter period of time. You will be given the opportunity to provide comments while taking the exam. If you have any additional feedback at the end of the exam feel free to send your comments to me directly. Please note: You will find questions on the exam called variants. These are questions on the exam that appear to be the same. In fact, the actual question for two or more may be identical but they have slightly different answer options. Please do not make comments on these questions being the same. We are aware of this. No two variants will not go on the same form of the final exam. Around the middle of October, after the final exam has been published, you will receive confirmation of your pass or fail score. You will not be able to find out your score before that time so please do not send us a request for your score. Once the scoring is complete you will be able to view your score in the certification database, www.galton.com/~sun. You will also receive a score report in the mail from Prometric Testing. If you have passed the exam you will receive a certificate once your score has been entered into the database. Please contact me if you decide not to take the beta exam so that your spot can be filled. Feel free to contact me with questions. Thank you again for your participation.
