Hi,

I have just passed the Java Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer exam(1Z0-804). Next, I want to take the 1Z0-810 exam to extent my knowledge to the Java 8 environment. My question is: Does anyone know how long this exam stays in the beta phase?

Taking the exam in this phase is much cheaper($50 vs 245). Therefore, I want to know how much time I have to study for the exam;)

Thanks in advance,

Daan Willemsen

Hi Daan,

According to the New and Upcoming Releases the beta end date of 1Z0-810 will be April 18, 2015. This date is subject to change, but it's much more likely that the beta period is extended than shortened.

Don't forget you'll have to wait a long time before you know if you passed or not: Beta exam score reports will be available at CertView approximately 11 weeks after the close of the Beta Exam.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Hi Roel,

Thanks for your quick and most valued response. I already thought that I had read somewhere that release date of this particular beta exam was in april, but unfortunately I couldn't find the place it was stated.

Keep up the good work,

Daan Willemsen

Glad to hear I could help!

Btw I also moved your topic to the more appropriate OCPJP forum.
