SharePoint Config

Ari Bakker's thoughts on customising and configuring SharePoint

SharePoint 2010 Beta Exams Available

without comments

The Born to Learn Blog just announced that registration is now open for the SharePoint 2010 beta exams. Head over to their blog to get the registration codes as these let you take the test for free and if you pass you get the full certification. The idea is you do the TS one first and the PRO one is a bit more tech lead/architect based.

I think the exams are a great way to learn about more than what you focus on day-to-day as they cover a wide range of features included in the SharePoint platform. So if you have been working with SharePoint for a while now is a great chance to have a shot as there is nothing to lose (apart from a bit of pride perhaps).

You can sign up for an exam at although when I booked yesterday it took a few attempts to get through and places were filling up fast. The following exams are available:

Developer exams

71-573: TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development

71-576: PRO: Designing and Developing Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Applications

IT Pro exams

71-667: TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Configuring

71-668: PRO: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Administrator

There is also a webcast today covering what you need to know for the 70-573 exam – details at

If you are interested in being one of the first to know about new exams check out the Born to Learn blog post about becoming a Subject Matter Expert. This involves filling in a short survey on the Microsoft Connect site about your experience, and which development activities you want to be part of (e.g. take a beta exam).
