YOU ASKED: I am trying to study for 70-621. There are no e-learning courses yet, but there are for 70-620 that say they are good for 70-621 also. Which collection, 5103, 5347, 5354 or 5360, would be the most beneficial for the 70-621. I can't afford all off them.
ANSWER: The right course of action is 5103 then 5106 to prepare for 70-621, which will now be available as a live exam in mid-May 2007. Collection 5103 is available now; you can also purchase sub-sections ('courses') if you just need targeted bits of info. Check out course details here.
YOU ASKED: Is there an estimated release date for the E-Learning Course 5106?
ANSWER: April 11, 2007. This is the correct date (Feb 20); the release was pushed one week due to the VIsta exam slip.
YOU ASKED: We only talked about 5106 in our VIsta Live Meeting; now 5103 is on the list for 621 prep, too. DId something change?
ANSWER: Nothing changed; I just didn't have the most up to date info in the Live Meeting. 5103 and 5106 are both helpful for 621. Note - these are not meant to cover everything on the exam--they are intended to help you prepare, but not guarantee all coverage. 5103 focused on the Technology level content and 5106 is a combo of professional skills and technology, as it is intended to help customers make the jump from XP to VIsta AND validate professional skills...
FYI: The 621 prep guide lists two other e-learning course titles; that is from early days and will be updated soon to show objective domain mapping for 5103 and 5106.
YOU ASKED: How much will these e-learning courses cost?
ANSWER: 5103 is live now (see link above) so you can get the price. E-learning pricing is determined by the reseller, so we can't give you an exact price for 5106 unti it is listed. However, I can tell you that e-learning is priced on hours of content, and 5103 has 16 hours and 5106 has 12...so you can make a pretty good guess of where 5106 will be priced.
