    This is the exam - Server Virtualization with Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center | Microsoft

    So does this mean I get a Microsoft title if I pass this one exam? MCS??

    What happens if I do not do not watch the live teaching session? Its at 2am here

    Does anyone know if there is other revision methods for this exam?

    I wonder if I can book the exam when I get my email...

    Question question questions lol...

    Seems like this is a ploy to get VmWare experts to learn and grow in their understanding of Hyper-V/Microsoft virtualization offerings? Nice post though, nothing wrong with improving a skillset imo.
    I say this because....from the Virtualization 2 website at the bottom:
    Migrate VMware VMs to Hyper-V

    With the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC), you can convert individual VMware-based virtual machines and virtual disks to Hyper-V-based virtual machines and virtual hard disk

    Thanks for this!

    Does anyone know if the two days will be enough to pass the exams after? I'm currently studying 70-411 so wouldn't have the time to diverse on another epic but can spare a few days if I can watch the videos when convenient? Or does it have to be watched live?

    Looks interesting. Wonder if I'll ever be able to successfully fill out the registration form without it telling me fields are empty or 'The service is unavailable'. I remember this happening the last time I tried to sign up for something on this site.... oh well

    I got my confirmation email, however it does not mention the free exam voucher so I can not book the exam yet. I would like to book the exam as soon as possible.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    So you can NOT book the exam until AFTER the session?

    Does all the session involve watching the live stream?

    You will need to book only once they give the voucher information. I assume the intention behind giving the voucher is to make sure you attend the live session.

    This will be in the middle of the night for me...

    Have we to watch a live stream for a couple of hours, then study ourselves?

    With all the other stuff I have going on, Windows 8, Windows Server Security, I will be streaming this at work and register for the exam a month before it expires, June 30th, 2014. I just like to know where I can get more study material. I took last year's Jump Start for the 70-659, cost me $100 and failed, there was no study material. I read Hyper V Server 2008 R2, but that was not enough. Any ideas for study material for this exam? (70-409)

    I found a couple of books on Amazon:
    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Installation and Configuration Guide
    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Cookbook
    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V: Deploying Hyper-V Enterprise Server Virtualization Platform

    If they can be found at a lower price, that would be great.
