    This is a requirement for the Microsoft Partner Virtualization Competency. Unfortunately, 403 is not part of the MCITP:VA certification but there will probably be a few SCVMM questions on the 693 VA Pro exam.

    I have been working on this for a few weeks and plan on taking it by the end of February. I thought I would share my notes with everyone.

    Excellent resources, very useful indeed Claymoore - I have the exam Friday so we'll see if these help

    Thanks for this thread, it should be a sticky. I used the resources for review, and passed over the weekend. Someone was selling an early expiration voucher on eBay for $10 so I went for it. I learned and used SCVMM while studying for 70-652 and 70-693 earlier this year.
