    I am pleased to announce the launch of a product testing program for Boson's ExSim Max products. Since several of you have expressed interest, I thought I would post a request for product testers.

    We are looking for product testers for the following ExSim Max products:

    • 640-802: CCNA
    • 640-822: ICND1 (CCENT)
    • 640-816: ICND2
    • 70-620: MCTS for Windows Vista, Configuring
    • 70-431: MCTS for SQL Server 2005 Implementation and Maintenance
    • 70-443: MCITP for SQL Server 2005 Infrastructure Design
    • 70-444: MCITP for SQL Server 2005 Optimization and Maintenance

    Although the product will be provided to you at no charge, there is a price: you must promise to provide a detailed review of the entire product within 30 days. Things we are looking for include, but are not limited to:

    • technical errors
    • graphical errors
    • grammatical errors
    • confusing explanations
    • user interface recommendations
    • general suggestions

    A few caveats:
    • Forum membership and participation hath its privileges. Current, active forum members will receive preference over those who are just "looking for a freebie".
    • You must return a completed and signed Product Tester application form which includes a non-disclosure agreement.
    • I do not hold ultimate authority over who is selected to be a product tester.
    • Not everyone who applies will be selected to be a product tester.
    • Even if you are not selected as a product tester at this time, you may be selected in the future.
    • An excellent product review will greatly increase your chances to be a product tester in the future.

    If you are interested in testing an ExSim Max exam simulation product, please let me know by clicking my username above and sending me an e-mail message (my PM box is almost full). Please include the following information:

    • your full name
    • your location (city, country)
    • which products you are interested in testing
    • a brief description of why you would be a good tester for these products

    Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you!

    I dont think I would be usefull in any of those, my knowledge of Vista is too small.

    As soon as you have A+ exsims done I'm there dude.

    Have always been interested in testing + I got a distinction in it at Uni so I wasn't bad at it.

    Sorry, Sparky. To be honest, I wish there were... but there's currently only so many writers (any of you techs who are good writers want to move to Tennessee?), so we have to create the most popular products first. With Server 2008 looming on the horizon, we might not get to the "older" 2003 stuff for a while. :(

    There's a salary that would be involved, which you could use to pay for your apartment and plane ticket :)

    Unfortunately, the apartment would be entirely up to you. :D

    Would be another thing to add to my CV if i'm lucky! Couldnt be any worse than testing the software we write at work now. We don't even have any testing protocols or routines, its all haphazard (including the hardware testing!!) Nothings structured. But we find bugs anyway, and sometimes we are even lucky to get the developers to take up some of our suggested changes.

    Very interesting!

    Like GBL, although I'd like to do this, my experience has knowledge on the testing material is holding me back. Seems like a win-win situation for all involved, nice one Boson peeps. I'll keep an eye out for anything A+/N+/270 orientated :biggrin

    For those of you who are concerned about lack of Vista experience... To be honest, the 70-620 Vista material isn't difficult. You just have to have access to Vista and be willing to test EVERYTHING you read in the questions and explanations, and make sure everything makes sense and is easily understandable. Additionally, all the supporting documentation you would need is freely available on Microsoft's Web site.

    Y'all give it some thought, and if you've got the time to commit to it, it might still be something worth doing. It's certainly good incentive to get MCTS certified on it! ;)

    Twizz, for some reason, I haven't received it yet. Will keep looking.

    Keep in mind that the technical accuracy of the explanations is probably the most important thing that we're looking to catch... though bugs in the software are good to catch as well.

    Ah, Padawan, your mind tricks do not work on me. 8)

    However, if you have access to a cache of Coke Classic or Diet Coke with Splenda, we may be able to work a deal. :morebeer

    I take it that it would have to be be Vista Ultimate, my Sister has home but not sure if she has any Disks for it so I doubt I'll be able to do it in any case.

    Would be nice to though.

    Edit: Only the Pepsi max at the moment :(
