Επιστροφή στην 70-640…

Sign in to follow this  


Θα έχετε διαβάσει κάπου μέσα στο forum ότι η εξέταση 70-640 είχε αντικατασταθεί από την 83-640, η οποία είχε μεταξύ των κλασσικών ερωτήσεων και κάποια simulations, που είχαν σκοπό να τεστάρουν κατά πόσο ο υποψήφιος είναι ικανός να κάνει κάποιες εργασίες πάνω στο πραγματικό περιβάλλον του Windows Server 2008.

Στην πράξη λοιπόν ο υποψήφιος είχε κάποια virtual machines τα οποία δούλευε remotely. Καλό σαν ιδέα, αλλά στην πορεία αποδείχτηκε ότι υπήρχαν κάποια θέματα performance. Πολλά εξεταστικά κέντρα Prometric παγκοσμίως αντιμετώπισαν προβλήματα, κάποιοι υποψήφιοι δεν πέρασαν την εξέταση γιατί δεν δούλεψαν τα labs, οπότε αποφασίστηκε η επιστροφή στην παλιά μορφή της εξέτασης, και συνεπώς η μετονομασία της σε… 70-640.

Καθόλου simulations προς το παρόν, διαβάστε και την ανακοίνωση του Microsoft Learning:

We’re taking action based on your feedback

Since I posted my blog on the registration problems with 83-640, many of you commented about performance issues that occurred during your exam. Although I couldn’t respond to all your comments, I was taking them very seriously and escalating them within my organization. In response to the feedback that you have provided and comments from other customer channels, Microsoft and Prometric have decided to suspend Exam 83-640 and revert back to Exam 70-640, starting June 2, 2010.

Because 83-640 and 70-640 measure the same objective domain and skills, both result in the same certification. The primary difference between these exams is that each uses different question types to assess those skills. As a result, the reversion back to 70-640 doesn’t change how you should prepare for the exam.

What does this mean?

If you are currently registered for 83-640, you will automatically be registered for 70-640 at the same time and location. If you prefer to take Exam 070-640 at a different time or location, you can re-schedule your exam online or contact Prometric customer service.

If you’ve been waiting to register for this exam until I provided an update on the status for these issues, please register for 70-640 at your convenience. Simply visit www.prometric.com/Microsoft to register online.

If you took 83-640 but did not receive a score, please contact Prometric’s customer service if you have not already done so. I will work with Prometric to investigate these issues, but it’s very important that you contact Prometric to initiate this process because they have part of the information that I need to determine your final score.

Cutting Edge Technology in Exams

We are committed to incorporating performance based items into our exams because we are also hearing from you that this is how you want to be tested. We have learned a lot about the deployment of virtual labs and will continue working to incorporate performance based items into exams in a way that ensures a world class testing experience.
