See this thread for info about OCP 7 vs OCP 8 exam mapping. I registered for the beta for late May. They aren't giving long to take the beta (unless they extend it).

Pros:
- it's cheaper
- you get your certification earlier
Cons:
- the exam is exhausting (I just took a 3-hours-long beta exam)
- short time to study
- no dedicated study materials
- you don't get your results immediately after taking the exam
