    I'm new around here. Luckily I bumped into one of the topics here.

    Explain me this well ya:

    #1. Whats Microsoft Dynamics exam ? Is it the MCSE, MCSA certificates ?

    Does this mean that Im obligated to do my exam (MCSE/MCSA) between Sep & Jan ? If no, then can I register now for the offer and take the exam at any other time/month ? I mean 3 month from now is kinda short dont you think ? I didnt even register for the my first attempt !

    #3. There are 7 modules for the MCSE ... If I fail all of them *Knock on wood* will I do them all for free ?
    Is that what they meant by "Exam" ? or just one module out of all ?

    1) No idea about Microsoft Dynamics... I'm sure it's just another Microsoft exam (of which there are dozens - numbering into the hundreds).

    2a) You must register for the Second Shot between those dates. I don't have the time frames in front of me as far as when you have to take your first and second attempts.

    2b) You have to pay for your first attempt at an exam. If you fail, you get the second chance for free. Again, I don't have the deadlines for taking your second exam handy, but they're on the Second Shot site.

    2c) It's pretty unreasonable to expect to do all seven MCSE exams within four months.

    2d) How much IT experience do you have? Microsoft recommends that you have 12 months of experience managing a multi-site network of 250+ users with 3+ domain controllers for the MCSE.... not just 12 months of IT experience, but 12 months doing network and server administration. For the MCSA, it's 6-12 months of network/server admin experience.

    MS Dynamics is the general name for the "business class" software that previously went under a number of names such as "Great Plains". This is enterprise level Customer Relations, Accounting etc. suites -- a fairly specialist area of interest!
