    Default question about MCSA 2012 R2

    hello Masters ,

    im already starting my review for 70-410(reading forums and video tutorials + CBTNuggets +lab work) im just confused about there will be new materials for MCSA 2012 R2 (starting jan 2014)does it mean if i pass 70-410/411/412 this yr i need to take whatever MCSA 2012 R2 tests to be certified to that latest release?

    and lets say i only manage to finish 70-410/411 this yr and decided to finish 412 next yr is your title still MCSA 2012 or MCSA 2012 R2?

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. It sounds like the exam number might even remain the same with just added content for R2.

    It's par for the course with Microsoft to retain the same exam-numbers and just update the content for their R2 releases. This is what they did with both the 2003 and 2008 exams, and since they haven't made a new announcement regarding the 2012 exams it's fair to assume that you can simply take the next exam you need and complete your MCSA.
