Windows XP OS Exam Beta Testing This Week

Exam 70-271 also to continue beta testing to Nov. 20.

Microsoft began beta testing Exam 70-272, Supporting Users and Troubleshooting Desktop Applications on a Windows XP Operating System, this week; beta testing will continue until November 20. As well, Microsoft has also extended beta testing of Exam 70-271, Supporting Users and Troubleshooting a Windows XP Operating System, until November 20. Both exams are listed online on the VUE registration site.

Exam 70-272, numbered 71-272 while under beta, is the second of two exams that are prescribed exams for the new Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician. It's primarily aimed at those who troubleshoot problems with the operating system (70-271 differs in that it's aimed at those who support and troubleshoot desktop applications).
