    When can we expect to hear beta exam reslts for 70-504?

  2. Larry says:

    Thanks for the info.  I thought I was already registered for the "first to know", but it turns out that was for Windows Server, not VS and SQL.  So maybe this time I won’t be the last to know about first to know 😉

    I assume this won’t work along with the Second Shot offer.  Out of the two, I would prefer the Second Shot offer for new technology exams.

    Russ – unless 2nd shot is extended again, I wouldn’t worry about which to use 😉

    So, Trika, Sorry if I´m late, but… I haven´t any news about when SQL Server 2008 Beta Exams will be available…. Or, it was available months ago??

  6. Russ says:


    The 2nd shot offer is good through the end of June.  The WCF, WF and WPF exams will hit the market in April.


  7. Jeff Wharton says:

    Hey Trika.  Any idea when beta SQL Server 2008 exams will be released?

  8. says:

    No, months off yet, though. I think betas will start in June… so then add some months to that! I’ll find out the schedule and post something.
