  • Hi,

    You can use exam 70-417 to upgrade to MCSA: Server 2012 from MCITP: Sever 2008 or MCSA 2008.

    As far as I know exam 70-417 is unfortunately not a free exam and you will need to pay for the exam as with all Microsoft exams. (except for beta exams but 70-417 is not a beta exam)

  • Thanks a lot Danny for information. But i ever saw a advertisement poster in my prometric exam center and this was mention there. They said MCP  can upgrade their skills on 2012 server by giving a free exam of 70-417 and the package was available until 30th december 2013. I have a hard copy of that..... Oppsss. if it's not free then it's sad.. anyway need to buy another voucher :(

  • You can get the 70-417 exam "free" if you buy a 3 exam voucher pack.  The cost of the voucher pack is the same as only two exams.
