To answer your questions (though note, I don't work for Sun, so this is just my thoughts given past trends.)

  • Anyone can take the beta test if they request a voucher for it in time. They'll announce here and at their site when you can apply for them.
  • In the past they've had the same requirements for the betas as for the real tests. Since the SCJP exam has no prerequisite, it's not likely to be necessary to have a prior version to take the new one. (
  • Sun's betas have been free in the past, so I believe this one will be too, when they announce it.

    Easy come, easy go, I suppose. Ensures that only folks who think they're ready take it this way...
