Windows 2008 Transition Exam Vouchers: See You In September

Vouchers for those who ordered back in June will finally get the voucher codes in September, when Windows Server 2008 transition exam goes into beta testing.

According to a recent MCP Newsflash, candidates for the Windows Server 2008 upgrade exams who purchased a voucher back prior to June 2007 will finally get the vouchers some time next month. That's when Exam 70-649 TS: Upgrading Your MCSE Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008, is expected to become available in beta test format.

The preparation guide for Exam 70-649 doesn't specify whether candidates should already have attained MCSE on Windows 2003 status in order to take the exam. Still, Microsoft recommends a solid year of experience working with Microsoft networking technologies -- primarily with Windows Server 2003 -- and should be well-versed in directory services planning, manaagement and implementation. Microsoft also offers several official courses for Windows Server 2008; information is avaiable on the exam preparation guide.

Exam 70-649 is expected to go live soon after the official launch of Windows Server 2008 in February 2008.
