Kees Baggerman told me that the promotional code is also available at Trika’s blog so I don’t think it’s a problem to post it here (click the Read More button to read more…). If you want to know what you have to know about Hyper-V, just read my other post about it.

    Today I finally took the exam. I had planned to at least install Hyper-V at home but as always time fled and I was not planning to do it fast and make mistakes (and potentially loose data I have no backup of)….BUT I must say it was a really nice exam. There were questions were you really had to have hands-on experience but there were also a lot of questions that simple tested if you knew what Hyper-V was about in general.
    One question I found very bad: compare 4 pc’s of which 2 had 32-bit processors and 2 had 64-bit processors. Of the pc’s with 64-bit processors one had 3 SATA HDD and the other one had 2 iSCSI… what is better. Depends… capacity, what do you want (more capacity or more speed?).
    But in general I think I might have passed. Until today I was quite sure that it would be too hard to pass without the hands-on experience [my fault, I know!].
    Helmer, did you yourself also take a try with this beta?
