A few weeks back I brought you the exciting news about the new 74-324 Exam coming for Small Business Competency to replace 70-323, (yes, it is 74-324 NOT 70-324, for those who have been asking) based on the input and feedback that we have received from you, our partners, about the 70-323 exam contents and the relevance of it to the small business segment. The response and excitement about that announcement was great to see and I have been receiving some follow-up questions about the 74-324 exam on things like prep and timing, as well as questions from those who took the 70-323 exam earlier and did not pass it. Now that I’m back in the office (and thanks for your patience while I was out for a couple weeks of vacation with the family), I am providing this post with the answers to several of the questions, including some very exciting news for those who were early adopters and went after the 70-323 exam when the small business competency was announced.
To begin, if you haven’t read my New 74-324 Exam coming for Small Business Competency to replace 70-323 post yet about what the 74-324 exam is and why it is being introduced, you might want to take a quick moment to do so for the background. Now for those of you looking to pursue the 74-324 exam on your path to earning a silver or gold small business competency, here is the information for you:
Ok, so here’s another big question that I’ve been getting ever since the announcement of the 74-324 exam for the small business competency: “While that is great news about the new 74-324 exam for the small business competency, Eric, what about us who went out and took the 70-323 exam when Microsoft announced that as the requirement for the small business competency, before you announced the 74-324 exam, and failed it because of the content included in it?” Great question and we’ve got you covered. I’m very happy to let you know that we are offering free exam vouchers for those partners who failed the 70-323 exam before we announced the 74-324 exam in their pursuit of the small business competency. Here are the details:
