Web Services Exams Go Live

Microsoft makes available two more core exams for the MCAD.NET and MCSD.NET tracks.

Microsoft has released in the last week two more core exams for its MCAD and MCSD for .NET tracks:

Exam 70-310 went live Aug. 14; exam 70-320 went live today. Both exams are available through Prometric and VUE testing centers.

Coinciding with the availability of exam 70-310 last week, Microsoft issued 102 MCAD certificates, mainly to participants in that exam's beta testing program (see "MCAD Numbers Adding Up" in the News archive). MCSD.NET candidates and those upgrading from the existing MCSD will have to wait until next year to finish up all the requirements for the .NET track—Microsoft won't release Exam 70-300: Analyzing Requirements and Defining .NET Solution Architectures until February 2003 (see Microsoft's MCAD-MCSD comparison chart at http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/mcp/mcad/compare.asp).

Microsoft offers beta exams on an invitation-only basis. To find out more about participating in future beta exams, go to http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/mcpexams/status/beta.asp.
