SCCM Beta Exam
The SCCM Beta exam is open for registration!
If you received the email from Microsoft regarding the SCCM Beta exam, there is an error in the exam number (at least according to Prometric). After not being able to find the exam online to schedule it, I called and they informed me that the correct exam code is as above, 071-401. The email specified 070-401, which I assume will be it's code when it is live.
As was the case with the SCOM beta, the window is narrow:
Registration begins: November 21, 2007
Beta exam period runs: November 28, 2007- December 18, 2007
Receiving this invitation does not guarantee you a seat in the beta; we recommend that you register immediately. Beta exams have limited availability and are operated under a first-come-first-served basis. Once all beta slots are filled, no additional seats will be offered.
And if you're in India, Pakistan, or China you're out of luck.
Schedule soon, and good luck!
