    I saw another thread about the 70-640 changing to the 83-640, so I done a bit of looking around and it seems that I can still sit the 70-640 in the UK but it wont be in English if I want to do it in English I have to take the 83-640 it should either be one or the other I feel.

    As the actual course content has not changed I assume all the books that were written for 70-640 will still be fine to study the 83-640?

    But when it comes to the actual practise software I will need to make sure I pick the 83 and not the 70 just looked on Transcender the 83 costs $200 !!

    The 640 is making the move over to the 83 series, which is lab based, so pretty soon it won't matter where you are.

    The lab-based exam also includes traditional multiple-choice item types. Microsoft does not plan to discontinue that type of question at this time, since some points are better tested in a question/answer format than by demonstrating a technique. See here.

    The exam objectives & content has not changed, just the format.
