Check out Gerry O’Brien’s 5/19/2010 posting to the MS Born to Learn blog: it’s entitled “Register for SharePoint 2010 Beta Exams.” The open period during which those who manage to register can take this exam for free runs from 5/21 through 6/11/2010, so there are still about two-and-a-half weeks left as I write this posting myself. Because beta seats are limited in testing centers (they’re free and thus also generate no revenue) if you’re interested, you’ll want to jump right onto the Prometric Web pages to see if you can wangle yourself a slot.
Here are some particulars, with links to the relevant MS exam pages:
- 71-668: Pro: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Administrator counts as credit towards the MCITP: SharePoint Administrator 2010 cert
- 71-573: TS Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development counts as credit towards the TS: SharePoint 2010 Developer and PRO: SharePoint Server 2010 Developer credentials
- 71-576: Pro: Designing and Developing Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Applications counts as credit towards the PRO: SharePoint Server 2010 Developer cert
SharePoint is pretty hot stuff these days, and SharePoint 2010 offers some interesting and powerful enhancements to the general SharePoint bag of tools, tricks, and technologies. There’s no better price for a cert exam for free, so if you’re interested, your next move should be to see if you can secure yourself a seat!
