    Definitely not a short test, but I was pretty happy with it. I did make a few suggestions/comments on some questions. Seemed to hold pretty well to the previously linked objectives. Now I just have to wait two months to find out how I did.

    Only two months? That's a pretty short turnaround compared to CSA+. Took over five months before I heard anything about results.

    Just a guess. Cut Score workshop for this one is in about 6 weeks, if memory serves. Time from beta to results varies depending on when the followup items are scheduled to turn all of those beta tests into results.

    Agreed. The exam was pretty time consuming, it really came down to the wire for me on this one. I think I did pretty well, but I wasn't as confident on a few of the simulations, I felt as if I needed way more time to think some of them through, let alone do a proper check through. There were a few multiple choice questions that I was completely unsure about, but that could be due to my relative lack of experience with cloud when compared to some others on this thread. Definitely anxious to see the results.

    I didn't expect it to be ~3 hours. Or for me to need the entire time.
    Skipped the simulation questions because I was drained and had somewhere to be. Spent only about 2 days after work studying for the exam, and I think I passed (unless the simulations cost me that much). But it's definitely a difficult exam.

    I did have one question (won't give any specifics) that I thought was very, very AWS specific, even tho the question made it seem like it was general to all cloud platforms. And maybe 2 questions that didn't make sense. Other than that, seems like it could be a good exam. As I was taking it, I thought of 2 people I'd recommend studying for and taking the exam.

    I wonder how the Cloud Security Alliance certs compare to the CompTIA Cloud+.

    News to me that you have to wait 2 months in order to receive a grade. I also want to make sure that if you do pass, you do become certified right?

    CompTIA will correlate the results of the beta testers, and make alterations to questions based on that before launching the final product. Once they have the final product, they calculate everyone's results based on that scoring system they developed. That usually takes a few months. But yes, if you meet the cutting score, you become certified retroactive to the date you took the test.

    Just got an email from CompTIA stating that October 27 is the last day to take the Beta exam. My date is October 13, and I'm nowhere near ready. I'm probably just going to have to let it go.

    You paid for it already. You might as well sit for it.

    Do you have any cloud experience? Use AWS, Azure, or GCP? If so, I think you'll be fine. The exam is kinda like a mixture of the Network+ and Security+ with a little bit of Cloud in it. I thought the same as you - I didn't study nearly enough and almost skipped it. However, I'm glad I did't, pass or fail. I ended up only getting a solid 2 days of studying in haha. But I think i passed to be honest. You have other certs and experience so I think you'll be fine too.

    I'm still preparing for F5 303 and have MSc on my head, so not sure will have time to prepare.
    I will decide close to final day. In worst case may reschedule and go unprepared

    Thanks for the vote of confidence! My only knowledge of cloud computing is what I've picked up while studying for other certifications. When they announced the Cloud+ Beta, I started using the V1 objectives as my study guide until they posted the Beta objectives. No experience with deployment. It's not over yet. I'll have to think about it over the weekend. Honestly, I wasn't even planning to earn this certification at all. But when they announced the $50 Beta exam, I figured it would be a good idea.

    Took the beta exam a few weeks ago, if you've been studying for AWS, this exam was a cake walk.

    You really need to be familiar with cloud concepts and technologies and how they work as well as knowing migration strategies.

    It was mostly AWS related terminology imho.
    Kindly doing the needful

    Went ahead and threw my hat into the ring. Will be taking on the 26th.

    I've got very little Cloud experience. Printed out the objectives and guess I'll just see how much I can learn in two weeks. Might as well for $50 -- if nothing else, I'll have a go under my belt.

    AWS CSA Associate probably.
    Whereas the exam DID seem a bit AWS centric (I mentioned this in my post earlier as well) I don't know if studying for the AWS CSA would help you pass. It's more like, if you have AWS (or Azure/GCP, but to a lesser extent) experience already, the exam should be significantly easier. But if you don't, focus more on the actual Cloud+ objectives to get your pass.
