    Windows 7 itself is all you've got to study.

    Why would there be any materials for this exam yet? It's not yet live.

    Alot of Microsoft's beta exams are 4 hours long, they have alot more questions than the finished live exam. Saying that, that doesn't mean that you have to stay for the full 4 hours. I never have.

    No, I booked the exam via the Prometric website. You could ring them if you want to book it.

    :oops: found them, I could of sworn they weren't there yesterday


    Quick question could you book both exams in one day but overlap them? Say one exam starts at 10am and the other at 12:30pm?

    I fancy doing them both to get a feel for the exams and content and if I pass then it's a bonus.

    You could try, not sure. I did try to book a 4 hour exam into a 2 hour slot and I was told that wasn't possible.
