Tomorrow, November 5th 2008 is the last day for the SCSNI Beta exam. I gave my exam today afternoon. Just talk to a Prometric Center and fix up an appointment. Its free, doesn't required any Vouchers. Just take your Candidate Id and drive in. Exam code 311-045.
There are total 161 Question to be completed in 195 Minutes. Basis is NetBeans IDE 6.1. Lot of questions on Web, Java Desktop application development. There are also general Administration skill test. Prepare about importing projects to NetBeans which were not developed using NetBeans. There are questiosn on NetBeans Profiler and Remote profiling. read the NetBeans Help manual and some experience would help.
Test results will appear only after 6-8 weeks, which means in the 2nd half of month December 2008. The exam certifies you fully for Sun Certified Specialist Netbeans IDE (SCSNI). I liked the cerificate name.
