  2. Vincent: I'm taking the exam on the tenth.
    If you can get ahold of the November issue of TechNet Magazine (available
    online at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/technetmag), it has several
    excellent articles on setting up and deploying Windows Vista. Subscription to
    the magazine is free at www.technetmagsubs.com, I strongly recommend that you
    all subscribe.
    According to a Microsoft webcast last week, the Prep Guide should be
    available by Wednesday.

  3. That was one of the most informative TechNet spreads I have read. Great
    articles on Windows Vista.

  4. Many thanks for your tips, larry. I could not agree with you and Michael
    more, the articles MUST BE READ before I take the exam on the Nov 10 too.

    Good luck to you.

    Good luck guys...

    I took the exam on Tuesday. I zipped right through it so either I did
    really well or really poor. Good luck!

    No Jonathan, You do not.

    The way beta exams work is simple:

    1. The beta exam is created.
    2. You take the beta exam along with say 1,000 of your closest strangers in
    the field.
    3. The results of you and the other exams are then reviewed, some questions
    are dropped, and the passing grade is set.
    4. Your exam is then scored based on those criteria, and you receive your
    results typically two months after the beta process closes.
