Reminder: Developer Exams in Beta Next Week

Qualified MCSD candidates can take new security-based developer exams for free; exams set for April 21 beta testing.

Reminder: Candidates for the Microsoft Certified Software Developer certification have a chance to take two exams for free next week:
  • 70-330 Implementing Security for Applications with Visual Basic .NET (numbered 71-330 while in beta)
  • 70-340 Implementing Security for Applications with Visual C# .NET (71-340 while in beta)

For more information on these exams, see "Developer Exams Spotlight Security" in the News archive (or click here).

The exams are free for those candidates who are sent an invitation to take the exam during the beta period. According to posts on several public newsgroups, invitations hit candidates' e-mail inboxes the same week as the Microsoft Learning Web site announced the exams. Microsoft typically sends invitations to subscribers of its MCP Newsflash newsletter, but the selection process that the company uses remains a well-guarded mystery. (To read more about getting involved in the beta process, click here.)

Both the 70-330 and 70-340 exams also count as electives under the MCAD.NET and the MCDBA titles; as of this writing, however, the requirements guides for those titles still do not include the new exams.
