Call it the end of an era, or perhaps the start of a brave new world. Others who, like myself, have gone looking for MS Exam 70-640 (TS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring) probably also walked away scratching their heads when they couldn’t find hide nor hair of this exam. A blog posted on MS “Born to Learn” yesterday entitled ‘What happened to “70-640?”‘ makes everything clear. This is a performance-based exam and as such is a relative rarity that will soon gain numerous other cohorts in the MS exam annals. As such, it gets a prefix of 83- (so it’s exam number 83-640), rather than the more familiar and expected 70-640. The exam is the same, and the same objectives still hold as described in the MS preparation guide (whose URL still includes the string ’70-640′ BTW! ;-). You just have to scroll down further in the Prometric exam listings to get to those that start with 83- and to finally wind up at 83-640.
