Exchange Server 2010 Exams 70-662 & 70-663 - What Service Pack do these exams use?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there.

    I'm planning on sitting 70-662 and 70-663 before they are retired on July 31st.

    I cannot, for the life of me find out what Service Pack the exams are currently based on.

    The website doesn't tell me - http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/exam-70-662.aspx

    I've emailed my local testing center where I sit my exams don't know either.

    Can anyone provide any validated information (please post links and dates) on what these 2 exams are currently based on?

  • Hi, Guyver-1.

    I always look at the Published date on the exam description web page. The published date usually changes as exams are updated because the exam Skills Measured changes. If it is before a service pack, the I assume the exam was written for the prior version.

    I don't know Exchange 2010 but did the product really change with the service packs? Usually service packs are just bug fixes and not feature updates - but not always.

  • The Service Pack version is important because of things such as depreciated commandlets.

    As an example:

    Things like this can mean the difference between a pass and a fail.

    I got a reply from an email to the Certification guidance team which answered my question:

    Thank you for contacting the Microsoft Certification Guidance Team.  

     

    It’s great to hear you are interested in attaining a professional Microsoft certification for Exchange Server 2010! The exams in this path will be using Service Pack 2.

    So I now to install SP2 on my test environment and see what changes were made for SP2 to ensure my study notes are up to date.
