    Well the beta exam had 130 questions to be answered within 120 minutes. I had to make comments on quite a few questions (normally I only make comments on a couple, but this time was different).

    Quite a few questions either had multiple right answers, imo, but you could only select one. Some of them, imo, didn't provide enough information to make a valid correct answer. And in keeping with Comptia's understandability, some of the questions, I had to read multiple times in order to understand what they were trying to ask.

    Hopefully this issues will be ironed out with the live exam, but we'll see.

    I can honestly say that I've answered 50% correctly, the other 50% were iffy. They used some termnology that I don't use and I believe 1 or 2 question were US specific (but them again, that could just be me).

    On taking the exam (and without breaking the NDA), I believe that this certs would be a useful cert to have, as if you actually study for this (once there are books/CBT's out there for it), it covers a wide range of things from components to virtualisation to disaster Recovery to documentation, etc... Things that a new server/system admin should know. However if I fail, I do not know if I'll re-sit this exam as I already have my MCSA/MCSE/MCITP:EA. I may do if Comptia does decide to bring in the vendor-neutral System Admin cred.

    Oh well, I believe I have to wait 5-6 months for the results, fingers crossed :)

    Thanks mate :) I thought that it would have been, but it took me just over an hour to complete the whole exam.

    sounds like there were a lot dodgy questioning going on. It reminds me of when I did the PDI+ beta although I was just new to the cert game I am pretty sure that there were atleast four or five questions were the answer could have been two of the choices.

    Hope you pass it mate. I'm made up it only took you an hour as I'm driving miles away to sit my Security+ so booked the Server+ exam for straight after it. Am I insane? Quite possibly. One thing I will moan about is the lack of Server+ material about. If CompTIA want this one to become mainstream their going to have to get marketing it a lot more IMHO. Well done anyway

    @GBL - I agree, I've never know a beta exam to be like that before. However this is the first Comptia beta exam I've taken :)

    @jk2447 - Good luck for both exams, hope you pass both :)
