This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I have been reading about the new 1.4 exam, I wasn't aware that there were different versions of the exam. How will I know which I'm taking and are there likely to be 1.4 specific questions on the new exam that I will be unable to answer if I haven't looked into 1.4 yet ???
When will the details about the length of the exam (number of questions) and duration of the exam be available? The beta is 4 hours long with 161 questions; this is nothing like 2 hours and 59 questions (as for the current exam). So when will these details be made available ? If anyone know the answer to this question please do let me know firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your time. And good luck with the study. bob

bob, if anyone does know, they should post it here so that others can benifit from the information as well. If you really want email notification, you can start a new thread and click the email notification checkbox. That way, anytime someone posts a response to your thread, you will be notified via email.
In the email I got the voucher for the 1.4 beta, it is said that the official version will be in less time and have only a percentage of the 161 questions. So I think they will go back to the 2hrs-59 qustions type. Franciso

Also, they normally retire the old exam when they roll out a new version and if I'm not mistaken, the new exam should be offered under a new number as well. So you don't really have to worry about not knowing which one you'll get. Junilu
