I took the exam yesterday.
162 Questions/210 minutes.
Found it tough to complete, No time was left for re-visiting questions.
RHE is not enough, must go through the API docs.
Lot of questions on Threads - none too easy - Looks like Most of the questions were from experience.
Lot of twisted questions.
Questions on util and Layout managers were comparatively easy.
Found couple of questions with mistake.
The one thing I realized is that Beta is for experts - experienced people only, who can answer the questions very quickly.
