Will there be a Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 version of TS: Windows Internals 70-660 certification? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've been looking all over for any information about more recent version of TS: Windows Internals certification? Does anyone have knowledge if this certification will be continued for Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012?

    Alternatively, if I would go for this Windows Vista / Windows 2008 version of the test what would be the expiration date for this certification? It's from 2008 already.

    Thanks

    Tero

  • Exam 70-660 is the only available exam for System Internals and this exam will retire on July 31

    For now no equivalent for this exam is available in the new MCSA or MCSE track. This exam will still be valid for some time after it has retires.

  • Hi,

    Thanks but that's not really what I was after. I'm looking for more information about Windows Internals - certification (See certification 70-660) and whether that will be updated one day.
