    I have to say that I'm a bit excited, been invited to take the Exchange 2010 beta exam.

    71-662: TS: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, Configuring

    Just got to buckle down, put aside the studying for the Hyper-V exam and study for this one :)

    Beta exams are now done by invite.

    That's actually M$'s way of easing candidates into getting certified so as to generally get the much needed response and awareness of that technology.

    We actually got an invite at the office. :D

    All the best on the preparations. 8)

    Right now, am still studying Microsoft Dynamics though I won't be taking the exams. So I guess I won't be going for Exchange 2010 now.

    Just completed "Collection 6899: Exploring Features of Exchange Server 2010" which includes:

    Clinic 6900: Introduction to Exchange Server 2010 &
    Clinic 6901: Exchange Server 2010 in an Enterprise

    Both are short and skim thru the subjects, but a good starting point. One thing though, unless you use the compatibility mode in IE8, the courses won't work properly :rolleyes:

    Oki doki. Thanks for the update. That bit of info^ might come handy. Don't know how my colleagues are getting on here. Guess everybody is really neck deep into their various individual priority studies/task. Besides will be getting back to school soon when the strike action is called off. Expecting more updates from you.

    Appreciated! :D

    You have to fill out your MS profile and then you get selected that way. Can't post the code and info here until the 24th as per MS instructions.

    Max count already received...

    This is often the case. The few times I've had an invitation to a Beta, I was either travelling or not checking mail on that day, and if you wait even one day, all seats are taken.

    Then again, unless I've been able to put a several months into an app/os, I won't feel confident enough to pass an exam. Unfortunately I only spent a few hours with a Beta of 2010 :( in between other things at work...
