YOU ASKED: I am trying to study for 70-621. There are no e-learning courses yet, but there are for 70-620 that say they are good for 70-621 also. Which collection, 5103, 5347, 5354 or 5360, would be the most beneficial for the 70-621. I can’t afford all off them.
ANSWER: The right course of action is 5103 then 5106 to prepare for 70-621, which will now be available as a live exam in mid-May 2007. Collection 5103 is available now; you can also purchase sub-sections (‘courses’) if you just need targeted bits of info. Check out course details here.
YOU ASKED: Is there an estimated release date for the E-Learning Course 5106?
ANSWER: April 11, 2007. This is the correct date (Feb 20); the release was pushed one week due to the VIsta exam slip.
YOU ASKED: We only talked about 5106 in our VIsta Live Meeting; now 5103 is on the list for 621 prep, too. DId something change?
ANSWER: Nothing changed; I just didn’t have the most up to date info in the Live Meeting. 5103 and 5106 are both helpful for 621. Note – these are not meant to cover everything on the exam–they are intended to help you prepare, but not guarantee all coverage. 5103 focused on the Technology level content and 5106 is a combo of professional skills and technology, as it is intended to help customers make the jump from XP to VIsta AND validate professional skills…
FYI: The 621 prep guide lists two other e-learning course titles; that is from early days and will be updated soon to show objective domain mapping for 5103 and 5106.
YOU ASKED: How much will these e-learning courses cost?
ANSWER: 5103 is live now (see link above) so you can get the price. E-learning pricing is determined by the reseller, so we can’t give you an exact price for 5106 unti it is listed. However, I can tell you that e-learning is priced on hours of content, and 5103 has 16 hours and 5106 has 12…so you can make a pretty good guess of where 5106 will be priced.
