Microsoft this month has released a number of exams into beta testing phase, including another slated for the new-generation Windows Vista track. Already under beta testing from now until Dec. 20, 70-622 PRO: Installing, Maintaining, Supporting and Troubleshooting Applications on Windows Vista - Enterprise is among two exams that count toward the new, higher level MCITP: Enterprise Support certification.

Also getting tested this month are two SQL BI exams:

  • 70-445 TS: SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence - Implementation and Maintenance
  • 70-446 PRO: Designing a Business Intelligence Infrastructure Using SQL Server 2005

Exam 70-445 has been in beta, with testing closing up on Dec. 21. Beta testing for Exam 70-446 starts Dec. 11 and ends Dec. 21. Both exams, which are the last of the SQL Server 2005 exams Microsoft announced earlier this year, are expected to go live in February 2007.

Beta exams are free and available by invitation only. To find out more, go to http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcpexams/status/beta.asp. Live exams are $125 in the U.S.
