70-243 & 70-242 – Call to Action!

Call to Action!

Microsoft needs our feedback on the upcoming 70-243 & 70-242 certification exams that will cover System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and System Center Operations Manager 2012. Wouldn’t it be great with two tests per product? one for day-to-day admins and one for IT-Pros?

Tell Microsoft your opinion using this 5 question survey for each upcoming test which can be answered on here: http://borntolearn.mslearn.net/btl/b/weblog/archive/2011/03/24/system-center-folks-we-need-your-input.aspx
