Pentest+ 2 Beta

Has anyone signed up and taken the new Pentest+ Beta exam? I have my exam scheduled for 26 JUN. I'm studying for the OSCP so I'm using that for Pentest+ prep. I'm trying to find sample exam questions that are the most similar to the actual exam. Does anyone have suggestions? 

I took the Pentest+ v1 Beta a few years back and failed. I would like to pass this time. :smiley:

    Have you seen this discussion?
    Thank you JD. That's good info. They didn't mention sample questions to use for exam prep, but as I remember from the first Beta Pentest+ it was heavy on nmap. I didn't study one bit for the first one, but I am for this one.

    sat already, exam was a pain. I'm afraid I won't pass at this time. But I did not prepare at all
    I'm just doing my job, nothing personal, sorry

    40+ certs...and I'm not counting anymore

    I barely prepared for the first PenTest+ beta exam and barely passed it. I didn't bother bother taking this second beta exam because I knew that I would have to study well to pass, and my head is just not into Software Systems Quality Assurance right now.

    That's what I thought about the first Pentest+. I read over the objectives and was surprised by how many there are. Was it heavy on nmap and coding?

    First beta was easy. This is "very" heavy on nmap, but not only. I'm sure you will be surprised few times

    Oh well at least it's only $50. And I thought the first beta was hard. lol
