    I just signed up for this Friday after seeing the e-mail. Why pass up the chance for a free cert?
  • sigsoldiersigsoldier Member Posts: 136 ■■■□□□□□□□
    I just got the email about this and came here to see if anyone else had anymore info. It looks like they are only free for the first 400, so better act fast!

    When scheduling it, the actual test description said 450, so I'm not really sure. Either way, I hope there are still slots Friday at 11:30 am. Would they notify you if it filled up before you get to the testing center?

    Sign up the same way you did for your A+. I went to pearsonvue.com and logged in.

    It's an issue with Google Chrome.

    Is it prompting you for a cost? I used the code even though I was given the total due of $0.00.

    Even though it shows as $0, it will not let you register it without the code.
  • danny069danny069 Member Posts: 1,025 ■■■■□□□□□□
    The cost came out to $0 without the promo code, then when I went to process/confirm, it said it needed a promo code in which I entered, then it said reached it's limit icon_cry.gif

    Yeah same here. I'm not sure why I didn't have an account? Bummer!

    I got the same email and tried to register but it wont let me login due to multiple accounts/career ID's, etc. so I had to create a service ticket to merge them. Never knew I had multiple ID's. Oh well. I hope I get into the Beta. A free exam is a free exam. This one looks kewl.

    Even without the promo code its still shows up at 0.00, but I didn't continue past that I'll admit

    Yep, I just tried it and the sign-up limit has been reached.

    This is the cert everyone wants to hop on, this year...
    Vendor Neutral Certified in IT Project Management, Security, Servers, Workstations, Software, Networking, Windows, Unix and Linux and.. Cloud. :-)
  • crypticgeekcrypticgeek Member Posts: 66 ■■□□□□□□□□
    Well I just sat the exam. The beta consisted of 130 questions with a (I think) 2 hour time limit. I think the exam objectives pretty well represent the kinds of questions I was asked. If you've ever taken any of Comptia's other vendor neutral certs you'll know the style of their questions pretty well. I found the exam pretty easy. To give you some background of my knowledge, I've been using Amazon web services for a number of years on a small scale personal basis. I started working with vSphere last year and obtained my VCP last October.

    I wonder if that will be close to the number of questions in the first release of the Cloud+ exam. The Cloud+ objectives list is extensive. CompTIA's Cloud Essentials exam has only 50 questions. Anyone taken it?

    Yes and it was very basic. I'm pretty sure anyone could pass it just by reading the Wiki page on cloud computing.

    I sat for it today....we'll see how it goes in a few months!
  • prampram Member Posts: 171
    I took it today. Its kinda like the security+ and storage+ with cloud terms mixed in. Pretty easy imo, I'd be shocked if I didn't pass.

    i just hang up the phone with comptia and they confirmed that the 400 limit has been reached and this beta exam has been closed 2 days ago (damn!!!).

    but the exam is still in pearson vue's website and wont be available until comptia finally puts out an active exam mid of 2013. that's why u can register for the beta alright but it won't allow u to finish registration bcoz the cloudbeta1 promo code is no longer valid.

    It is registration for the Cloud+ exam that was closed, not exam taking. Those who were able to register are asked to please honor their commitment to take the exam so CompTIA gets the 400 exams taken that are needed to proceed with development. As of this date, just over 300 exams have been taken.

    Well, if any more are needed, I'm available. :D I'll definitely take the exam.
