Beta Exams: What, Why and How?
By Harold Green on Aug 22, 2008
One of the topics that we get a lot of questions about is beta exams. Questions like:
…why is the test so long? (i.e. so many questions)
…why don’t I get the score for my beta right away?
…how does Oracle use the beta exam results?
…why should I take a beta exam?
Many more too. And although we are certainly happy to answer these questions when they come into our customer service inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) and online forums, we thought you’d enjoy hearing the answers to these right here in our blog. We’re therefore beginning this new mini-series called “Beta Exams: What, Why and How?”
These posts will be sprinkled amongst our regular posts, so don’t worry – we won’t bore you with a consecutive assault of ‘posts about beta exams’.
Right now, there are still many Oracle exams that you can take in beta, so we encourage you to get out there and take them while they are still available. (Exam prices and availability window listed on each certification exam’s detail page.)
If you have a question about Oracle’s certification beta exams – please let us know here in the comments and we’ll see if we can address them right here. (please note – we will continue to refer specific customer service questions to our email address above)
