Thanks to Anne Martinez’ latest GoCertify.com newsletter, I just learned that all three exams for the MCSA: Windows Server 2012 are now live, even though the MCSA page still labels them as in beta form. Nevertheless, as of September 17, these exams are now available for sign-up at Prometric testing centers:
If they were really still in beta, the sign-up numbers would start with 071-xxx. But as this Prometric screen cap clearly shows, the exams are listed with 070-xxx numbers. This not only indicates the beta period is over, but also indicates the exams are available at normal pricing levels (and subject to the Second Shot promotion currently underway — see my recent blog for how to sign up and exercise this potentially cert-saving option).
This credential is your stepping stone to MCSEs for Server Infrastructure, Desktop Infrastructure, and Private Cloud, so it’s a great place to get started on chasing down the latest Windows Server and desktop versions.
