70-640 2nd Edition release date RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have started studying for 70-640 using the MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit and have seen that there is a 2nd edition soon to be released and was hoping someone could tell me when I can expect this? I'm also hoping that this with contain all the new R2 knowledge for the updated exam?

    I'm guessing that all relevant training kits will be updated with R2 at some stage? 

    Thanks,

    Pat

    Microsoft hasn't provided an information as to when the MS Press books will be updated.  Back in the beginning of September, Ben Watson indicated that it would be "a few months".  You might want to take a look at this thread regarding the R2 discussion.

    Personally, I believe Microsoft dropped the ball by including questions on R2, and not updating either the exam objectives, or providing updated materials (until called on the carpet in the above thread).
