I've been looking at the lists of tests that will be available at Brainshare.

I didn't think all of the tests go toward a certification?

Do some of the tests just go for a certificate?

For example: SUSE Linux security Test ID 3057

I noticed that 3086 and 2000 are not listed as beta.
But, Certified Linux Administrator is mentioned as beta. Isn't that the 2000 test?

What is the normal cost of a certification test, like Upgrade to OES for Netware? test id 3083 Is it $125?

Is it really hard to get signed up for a test slot? Or is it just certain hours may be harder to get. It seemed that when I took a test in 2003, that it was not bad to get a test slot. Maybe I just had to be flexible.
