Here, There On Certs and Exams
The wheels on the Microsoft Learning Group's bus continue to roll. But besides that, they've been busy blogging as they're in development and in beta on some exams. With Exchange 2010 about to drop, the group is in the throes of development on the Exchange 2010 Pro exam, with a beta coming soon. Here's what I didn't know: MLG goes to its subject matter expert, or SME, list first to offer them the beta codes for the exams. It's probably nothing new, but worth noting for those who haven't been paying attention (like yours truly).
The Born To Learn blog points to a survey that's open to anyone to take, detailing your expertise. The data can be seen only by the content developers, who use the data to identify SMEs who can help them with exams they're developing. So, be prepared to brag about what you know when you create an SME profile.
It's a fair trade, really. You help them develop and test exams, and you get to take the beta exam. When you pass (you're an expert, remember?), you've got the paper credential to prove that you're an expert.
So, they'll be looking for Exchange experts soon. Meanwhile there are other exams in beta, specifically: 70-579 TS: Windows Mobile 6.5, Configuration and 70-580 TS: WinMo 6.5, Application Development. Both exams are expected to go live some time in February 2010. If you think you'd like to try the beta version, you can find the codes here.
