I was wondering if there are any legitimate short dated voucher sites like getcertified4less forThe following entry from the official blog would seem to indicate "No":
Oracle tests. eg you have 1 - 2 weeks to take the test before it expires.
There will normally be more questions, less time to do them, and the exam will be longer.'Less time to do them' is not really accurate. The test will have something on the order of 2.5 to 3 times the questions the production exam will have. The duration will set to what OE thinks will be 2.5 to 3 times the production exam time. Since everything is in flux during the beta, those two are just approximates. I didn't find running out of time to be a problem. Running out of mental energy about 3/4 of the way through the test was a bigger issue.
I think I recall Matthew has previously said he hates them.I detest them. Betas can take you three hours sitting in front of the screen answering all of the questions. That's just too long. You also have to deal with the buggy aspect of questions and answers. What I probably hate most is the 'not knowing' whether I passed or failed for twelve weeks minimum (this assumes you took the beta in the final days it was available).
I am more "happy" to try them as they can on occasion (not always) work for me on cost/risk/benefit basis.I will grant that my employers have always paid for my exams (assuming I pass them). Saving my employer's money isn't worth the added hassle to me.
