Beta Exam - 71-243 SCCM 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I’m about to take the beta exam for sccm 2012 (71-243) next week.

    It’s my first time participating in an exam beta - what can i expect?

    Since the duration is 4 hours, does it include more questions as usual?

    Did anyone here take the exam yet? Study hints are welcome!

  • Beta exams contain a lot more questions than live exams (The exact number of questions is not known as it differs between exams).

    At the end of the exam you will not be given a score.  Your score is generally sent to you after 6-8 weeks however it can take longer.

    If you pass the exam,  you will gain the certification i.e. it will appear on your transcript.

    The best way to study for a beta exam is to use the skills being measured in the exam (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?id=70-243) to research content via TechNet/MSDN online.
