For some reason I can't select San Francisco. It says there are no dates available. Am I too late?
So when I did a search for California, I found a site in San Francisco and in Fresno. I'm assuming you got at least that far. Is it at the point that you try to schedule an appointment with the testing center that you get the message that no dates are available?
do I need to pass that beta 70-113 exam, to win those free vouchers, or is it enough to register and try the exam?
Those 3000 people are counted on "first come first served" based on the registration date for the beta exam, or based on actual date of the exam, or based on the date of passing the exam?
Sorry, but I am really curious :)

Good Morning Harold,
We met at the NTEA meeting and TVNUG meeting some time ago. I am also taking the 70-113 test, and San Francisco also had no dates available, but Sacramento had a available slots, it's just a 2-3 hour drive from San Jose in morning traffic.
I was wondering if you know of a good pre test I can use to practice on?
