Microsoft has just announced to public the beta exam of the virtualization management solution of System Center suite: 70-403 (TS: Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Configuring). This exam belongs to the MCTS (Technology Specialist) credential, and it can be taken by professionals for free.
The coolest thing about beta exams is, if you approved in a beta, you win the credential when the final version of this exam becomes available. The only problem is that the result of beta exams, differently of final exams, is sent to you three or four months later.
The exam 70-403 is Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Configuring. This exam, developed for IT Managers and Enterprise Administrators, tests the professional’s knowledge in planning, implementing and maintaining virtual machines and servers, and also how VMM interacts with other System Center solutions.
The period of this beta exam starts next Tuesday (September 23rd), and will be available until October 24th.
If you want to take this exam, access Prometric website (www.2test.com) and schedule the desired exam. The code of these beta is in the format 71-XXX. On the last step (Payment), inform the promotional code (Promocode): VMM08. After you inform the code, the system will discount the whole value of the exam. Then, you confirm the appointment and get ready for the exam!
