"Performance-Based" Exams Go Live

New simulation exams for MCP exams 70-290, 70-291, roll out of Redmond worldwide at select testing centers.

As expected, Microsoft has begun delivering MCP exams with "performance-based" questions in live versions of exams 70-290, Managing and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Environment, and 70-291, Implementing, Managing, and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure. As of Thursday, the exams were available through the online Pearson Vue registration site in most areas worldwide.

Microsoft plans to post a release schedule for more exams that will be seeded with performance-based questions on its certification Web site some time in early April. Up next: Exams 70-293, Planning and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure, and 70-294, Planning, Implementing, and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Infrastructure, in June.
