MCSA/MCSE 2003 invited to beta WS2008 transition exams...

Just scheduled mine, going to have a shot at 71-649 August 3rd (if I don't have to reschedule). The exam is called Transitioning your MCSE on Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 Technology Specialist. Smart move, not calling it upgrading, even though you get three MCTS certification from this one exam. Important to note, this exam is fully tied to your MCSE 2003 status. Don't have one? Don't go for this exam, you won't receive any credits from it.

Similar, there is a transitioning exam for MCSA 2003 as well: 71-648. It credits you for two MCTS certifications (yes a subset from the MCSE transition). Again, be MCSA, or you'll be wasting your time.

Want more details or the promo-code, go check out Trika's blog.
Meanwhile I've no time to delay building my Windows Server 2008 image Virtual Server and start looking for resources to aid me with my studies (as always, the prep guide will not be spelling out all you need to know, but I'll be checking it out anyway).
