Cert Update – SAN Exams, .NET35, Second Chance upgrade! Get Certified in 2008!

October 19th, 2008

Hey everybody! A few updates which will directly impact you that you should know about!

First of all, I’ve updated the Free Testing Archive to age old invalid certs and include new certs – So check it out!

Next of all, we’re getting closer to the availability of the NS1-501 SAN Exam from NetApp.  Prometric has the details published just not available to schedule a test yet.  That should change in the next week or so.   This is an entirely new exam so any old ‘test data’ which one has for it, likely won’t be valid anymore.    I’ll need to rewrite the study guide I wrote for the original version.

Next, welcome the first in a series of .NET 3.5 beta exams!

71-563: Pro: Design & Dev Windows Apps Using MS.NET Framework 3.5October 13, 2008 – October 30, 2008 (Code: DW897)

We have a number of folks to thank for this Exam! I’d like to make sure you know about the Beta Exam Blog where this was posted, as well as GerryO who posted about this :)

(This is also posted to the Free Testing Archive!)

Anyone who remembers my Second Chance Promotion post earlier in August (Second Shot)

Well, thanks to the MSL Community and GerryO again for this:

Second Shot now offers two incentives to get certified!
Today, Second Shot provides the benefit of a free retake if you fail a Microsoft Certification exam.

Certification Update 2008! (Test Results are IN!)

October 14th, 2008

For those of you who took various betas in the past, the results are in for the following exams:

071-448 – TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Business Intelligence Development and Maintenance

071-432 – TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance

071-660 – TS: Windows® Internals

With those exams being officially released as far as ‘Who has passed, who has failed’ you can now login to your Prometric site to see how you did!

But wait, what else is new? There’s another new NetApp exam coming :)

It’s not visible yet, but I have a feeling it’ll be here soon.

NS1-501 NCIE-SAN from NetApp!

This exam was in beta last year, and I imagine the stakes have changed and the test has gotten harder! Last time I took it (Last August) I got 100% (booyah!)

So, Look forward to seeing that come out somewhere in the next few weeks!
