Hop into Diablo 3 this weekend, with their open beta!  All you need is a Battle.net account and a BattleTag.  All free and easy to do!  So, head over to battle.net (http://www.battle.net) and create your account (or log in if you have one already!) and go here to download the client (https://us.battle.net/account/download/index.xml).  As it installs, create your BattleTag under your account summary.

The open beta is a stress test, so don't be surprised it there are any issues connecting to the servers!  

Here is the FAQ from Blizzards post  (http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/blog/4105609/Diablo_III_Open_Beta_Weekend_-20_04_2012)about the open beta weekend:

Are there any differences for stress test participants versus invited closed beta testers?
Stress test participants will only be able to access the beta between Friday, April 20 at 21:01 CEST, and Monday, April 23 at 19:00 CEST In addition, stress test participants will not have access to post in the beta forums and will not be provided Beta Bucks for use in testing the currency-based auction house.

Can all regions/countries participate?
Due to regional differences and features of the stress test client, Korean players will not be able to partake in the stress test weekend. However, beginning the week of April 23, we will be conducting a separate, invitation-only closed beta test that will give players in Korea a chance to try out the game, along with players in the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.

What if the service is down/laggy/disconnecting me?
It's very possible that players connecting to the stress test could experience issues with the service. While not ideal, this is exactly why we're having a stress test. We want to catch and analyze as many bugs as possible during this stress test period, so that we can try to ensure a smooth launch on May 15.

I'm having an issue, how can I get help?
Due to the limited window of the stress test we encourage you to visit the Technical Support forum if you're having any issues running the game, and checking the Known Issues list if you're running into a bug. As a stress test participant you will not be able to post in the beta forums.

What platforms and languages do you support?
For the stress test we're offering the client in English, French, and German for both Windows and Mac. At release the game will be fully localized into English, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, European Spanish, Italian, Polish, Korean, and Traditional Chinese for Windows, and English, French, and German for Mac.

I'm an invited closed beta tester, what happens after the stress test weekend ends?
As an invited closed beta tester you'll continue to have access until the beta ends on May 1.

release date is may 15

It is only open beta this weekend, but I've been reading all week about people being able to get into beta without being invited... I just didn't pay any attention to it personally lol, cause I don't want to partake in the beta, seeing as it'll be out real soon.  And I think you did, but I forgot about it and didn't see it (I saw when you posted it and read it, but didn't see it prior to making this).  Idk I'm kind of blanking atm.
