New exam for Exchange specialist titles debuts November 10.
According to the recently updated exam objective guide on the Microsoft Learning Web site, Microsoft expects to release Exam 70-284, Implementing and Managing Exchange Server 2003 on Monday, November 10. The exam is an elective option for the MCSA and MCSE on both Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 tracks. It's also a prescribed exam for the Exchange specializations for the MCSA and MCSE.
Exam 70-284 was only recently beta tested (see "Exchange 2003 Exam Beta Tested This Week" in the News archive), and follows quickly on the heels of the release of Microsoft Exchange 2003 and the Microsoft Office System in mid-October.
