No use of rushing to Prometric. The voucher mentions that one can register with prometric starting from 4th June only

It *is* tough
But this is the way they usually do the betas... where you take almost three times the number of questions that will be on the final exam. But you're given a lot of time, so that you can comment on the questions. If enough people comment that they don't understand a question, or that none of the answers appear correct, that question will probably be thrown out (which means thrown out of your beta results as well).
Four hours is a long time, so bring plenty of bottled water in with you. And get some sleep the night before!!
cheers,
Kathy

Should be interesting - and gruelling. The length of the beastly thing is one reason to believe that not everyone will rush to appear in the first week. Or perhaps at all in many cases. This isn't a long lunch kind of thing. You'lle probably be wrung out and finished for the day by the time you finish!
