well i plan to take the exam,but see on microsofts site that it will be available in January. if you don't mind, can you share some info, like study material, difficult/easy? i'm planning on going for the MCSA
I think the problem is either an ID10T or PEBCAK error
No it isn't a typo. It actually is a really great idea. It is meant to be a stepping stone to the MCSE certification. The test that I took (supporting a 2000 network) is an elective for the MCSE also. The really great thing is if you have you NET+ and A+ you don't have to take one of the electives.
There is no study materials yet for it so I took the test without much prep. The Beat test was 90 questions and 3 hours long. Compared to the other 2000 tests it was more difficult but passable.
