Quick post on two beta Microsoft exams that you are allowed to participate in. Gerry o’Brien posted that the exams:
- 71-583, Pro: Designing and Developing Windows Azure Applications
- 71-506, TS: Silverlight 4, Development
are now available to take. The beauty is that if you manage to pass the qualifying score on the beta exam, you also pass the exam as soon as it is released. Of course, it is also a good challenge for your brain and a test of your knowledge on the topic of the exam. When you’re into the business of training, coaching or other knowledge transfer areas, this is a great opportunity to find out which training, books and e-learning material is needed to prepare for this exam.
The Microsoft Learning website lists extra information on the exams 70-583 and 70-506. The exams seem to be the one exam to pass to acquire either the “MCPD: Windows Azure Developer 4” or “MCTS: Silverlight 4, Development” certifications.
You can take these exams for free if you use the promotion codes AZPRO and SL410 respectively. You need to enter these code at the Payment Information screen.
