In a couple of hours (6:00AM (CET) you will be able to register for the new Windows Server 2008 R2, Virtualization Administrator exam (70-693 / 71-693). This is the second in the line of three new Microsoft Virtualization exams of which the last will (for what I heard :)) be available in beta somewhere in the first quarter of 2010.
So December will be a busy month: Two exams, Christmas (and for the Dutchies..we also had Sinterklaas) and New Year’s Eve at the end of the month. It’s good to know that the exam period of the 71-693 will go from December 23rd, 2009 till January 15th, 2010. So this one I will schedule for the second week of the new year!
Later today I will publish a list with resources which you can use to prepare for the exam. Are you already prepared for the 71-659 (Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization)? Check out my preparation blog post!
Just to be clear. The beta exam will (probably) be available at 6:00am (CET). If you’re not in the European time zone you can check out your ‘launch time’ at this website.
