    Hi Brandye -

    What is the validity of the Java Certification exam vouchers, bought at 20% discount, before Dec 31, 2015? Will they be valid for, say, another few months, until Mar or June 2016?


    With respect,

    Hi Mala,

    The Java 20% vouchers expire on December 31, 2015. They can not be used after that date.

    how many number question for the beta exam 1Z1-160.

  • Brandye Barrington Monday, March 7, 2016

    Beta exams contain 150-225 questions. I don't have the exact number of questions on this exam. Typically we don't publish the exact number of items on beta exams. There should be plenty of time to respond to all questions.

    i took 1Z1-160 today, it was 98 questions

    OK - maybe ALL betas don't contain 150-225 :). That has always been a ball park standard.
