Hi Santana,

Beta exams are usually announced on Sun's Java site, and on JavaRanch.

Since the cycle is usually something like:
  • Request for comments
  • Processing of said comments
  • Request for beta candidates
  • Beta exam
  • Processing exam
  • Announcment of results / making real exam
  • There is usually a lengthy period of time between the first item and the actual exam. If you monitor Today's Active Topics you will probably see a topic with "beta" in it's heading sometime in that period.

    There is also a "Java Training News" newsletter you can sign up for at Sun. Presumably it will list the upcoming beta exams. Unfortunately I cannot find the URL for that at the moment.

    Regards, Andrew
