System Center Configuration Manager beta exam

I think we'll post the System Center Configuration Manager beta exam information (71-401) at the end of this month. In the meantime, you can check out the exam objectives on the 70-401 prep guide, which is live as of a few days ago. We talked about dates and process for the betas in the SC cert Live Meeting, so if you need more info please review those slides.

Windows Server 2008 MCTS and MCITP betas

The next betas for WS2008 will be our three MCTS exams (71-640, 71-642, and 71-643), beginning at the end of November (targeting November 27, but please do not get your panties in a bunch if you don't see anything on that very date...). The MCITP exams will beta beginning in (most likely) late December 2007. In both cases, invitations to the betas will go out following our standard process:

  • Microsoft employees notified via internal distribution list (//infoweb/learning)
  • MCTs notified via private MCT newsgroups
  • Customers notified by invitation only (must be registered to MCP newsletter to receive). Customers who hold an MCSA or MCSE on Windows Server 2003 will *most likely* be the people who receive an invite
