MCSM Sites (088 tests) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Anyone know if there is a list of all the testing centers that you can take the knowledge exams at? I was preparing to register a couple days ago for the 2012 Knowledge exam and for some reason Prometric seems to have shut down the only site in MN that offered them.

  • Hi,

    You will need to select an other testing center if at the Prometric site when booking the exam.

    Try the Prometric "Locate a test center" https://www.prometric.com/en-us/for-test-takers/Pages/locate-a-test-center.aspx?Type=locate

  • Yes, you can do a state by state search in that way, but MS used to publish a list of the limited number of facilities that specifically provide the 88 series tests.

  • Hi,

    I've found this one at Prometric: https://www.prometric.com/en-us/clients/Microsoft/Documents/MastersSiteList.pdf

    It was the last link here: https://www.prometric.com/en-us/clients/Microsoft/pages/MCM.aspx

    (Not sure how current is it though. I think it's easier to write to the customer service of Prometric through their site.)

  • Unfortunately that list is not current, but might give me some places to check on.  I sent Prometric an email 2 weeks ago and have yet to hear back.

    My suggestion is that you send an email listed below. It is from the page that Zoltan referenced.  I am at the TechEd conference in New Orleans this week. There are several folks from Microsoft Learning on site with me. I will ask them to look into this for you. I will post any responses in this forum.
