    I check prometric and the exam is listed. Looks like Transcender have also released their product.

    While we on the talk of new certs... reading from this:

    Looks like our new MCITP certs WILL require recertification and Technology Specialist certs:

    Well, where there was just 70-270, now we've got 70-620 and 70-622. The old 70-620 objectives seem to be split between the new exams. Obviously, there are many new features/tools/apps in Vista, and the 70-620 exam covers them.

    It's been so long since I've took the MCDST that I can't remember what was on it. If I remember correctly, it's pretty comparable in difficulty.

    Yep. I'm just now finishing the edits on my Sybex book. How nice of you to give me advertising! :D

    Wow, that is cheaper. Wonder why it's so much on Amazon.uk?

    Well, easier depends on your experience level. Any of the Microsoft exams are easy if you truly understand the product or technology. If you learn about Vista, then it's easy... if you've never used it before, it can be difficult. I didn't find it to be difficult, but I wrote a book on it, so it shouldn't be difficult to me.

    Unfortunately, the Microsoft confidentiality agreement probably prohibits me from stating whether simulations are present or not. All I can say is that you should be able to pass if you understand the concepts on Microsoft's 70-620 page.
