I had the understanding that we would receive real credit for the sacrifices we're making to complete this beta exam. If I knew this were just a free practice exam, I would stop immediately, purchase CX-310-300A, apply this effort on a more mature assignment in January, and focus on some pretty intense December deadlines at work.

Does anyone know for sure what exactly we get if/when we complete all 3 parts of this exam?

Passing the BETA is as good as passing the real exam.

We will receive a certification kit in case we passed all three parts.

Don't worry.

Passing the Beta is equivalent to passing real exam, you'll get certification kit if you pass all parts.

Ok, so will it be legal to write in my CV that I'm beta certified SCEA 5, or that I passed SCEA 5 beta exam?

When you pass the beta, you can not only update your CV, you can update your JavaRanch signature as well!

You will have three weeks to complete the assignment part. If you feel you cannot do this free beta assignment in three weeks, please do not start it, as December 12th is the last day to submit your assignment in order for it to be valid and graded. If you do not submit your assignment, please delete this assignment as it is obsolete once the submission deadline is reached. If you do NOT complete Part II, you do not have to do Part III as you must complete all three parts of the SCEA beta exam in order to receive your certification.


This comes from the part 2 assignment mail, if you read it you will see "...in order to receive your certification". is this a mistake?

As far as I know the certification is a valid one, does not have any sense that you work in this and get nothing about it. Yes the knowledge, bla bla bla... but, who is really winning with this? the answer is SUN, because they will sell this to a lot of people later.

You can write that you are SCEA 5 (not Beta).

From my experience passing the Beta is equivalent passing the real exam literally , I mean Sun didn't say that you passed the Beta, yet they said you passed the real one.
