Our certification team is looking for a handful of subject matter experts on three kind of niche subjects–SAM, MDT, and pre-installing Vista/Server–to help with a short exercise in our exam development process.
We need 15 or 20 minutes of your time, experts, to help us weight the objectives of a few exams (basically to figure out how many questions for each section). Your contribution will end up as part of our prep guide on Microsoft.com… “Expert” is a pretty generic term, but we mean that you do this/have done this for a living, work with one of these technologies. Basically you should know your stuff on one of these areas:
- 70-673 Designing, Assessing, and Optimizing Software Asset Management (SAM)
