I took the beta for the 9i Upgrade Test and it was painful. After each question you get provide your feedback in a "What do you think about this question?" window.

If you pass now, you get certified as far as I know. But you won't know until after people who take the actual exam! Plus, it's three times the number of questions in twice the time. For IZ1-147 9i PL/SQL, I had 3 hours
to do 183 questions. Big long ugly questions. I won't do another beta exam.

Something important to note...

When I took the 8i beta certfication, I was charged "only" $25.00, but the
test was much longer and they solicited feedback on each question.

When I didn't receive my certification in the mail over the next couple months, I called Oracle to ask when I would receive it.

It turns out that passing the beta certification did not confer certification. I had taken the exam with the understanding that I was getting certified for less money (i.e. $25.00 instead of $100, $125, $400,
etc). Instead, it turns out that I was being charged $25.00 for the privilege of helping Oracle beta test their exam.

I had to take the test again, paying $125, in order to receive my certification.

I don't know whether this is true of the 10g beta...
