Oracle Certification Program Beta Exams
Beta exams are pre-production exams used by Oracle to evaluate new exam questions with the participation of a live audience. Beta exam questions go through a rigorous development and evaluation process before being released to the public. Data gathered during beta testing are used to select the best questions for the production exam, and to eliminate questions that are ambiguous, too easy or too difficult, or unhelpful in evaluating a participant's knowledge. Beta exams are offered at a deeply discounted price; candidates usually have 2.5 to 3.5 hours to complete the exam, and may see 120 - 220 questions.
