Is it true that the results (score) of the Beta Exam are published on the Internet with the name of each candidate?
My colleague was afraid of doing the test without proper preparation, because of his name published with a bad score.
Is it just a rumor or is it true?

My wild guess is that it is a big rumor.
2 reasons.
1. They haven't even had the chance to pick the questions that would be on the exam to know what score you got.
2. In all other Betas, no public release of scores was ever posted.
3. I don't think Sun would risk any kind of lawsuit that a public display of such a kind would result in.
Did I tell you I can't count.

Howdy -- that is just not true; the results will *not* be posted publicly with your name. That would really suck!
[I was just waiting for a reason to use one of the new faces]
Once the analysis is done and the scores are read (at LEAST six weeks), then if you passed, you become certified with no difference between a beta certification and a 'real' certification, as far as Sun or Prometric are concerned.
So, no worries about that

A naming release wouldnt be a good idea anyway The real exams don't do that, why would a beta do such a thing?
Rumors.

hello Kathy Sierra,
Thats very cool to hear this ,

Are you okay? You look a little big. Maybe this tiny ad will help:
