    I am hoping prometric allows pushing out exam dates, as I'm not realistically even going to be able to sudy for this til sometime in March, but when I registered it had all days beyond Feb 28th greyed out.

    Hyper V isn't rampant yet that I know of, but understanding virtualization in any capacity is a huge leg up in all higher level IT fields.

    They do state in the first video that these videos are meant to help pass the exam. Seeing as its a free test I'm going to just watch the videos and see how it goes. I have SOME idea of how it works and setting up virtual machines, but there is a fair bit under it that I have no clue about.

    So i'll watch the videos about 2-3 times and see how that goes. If you've not watched them, they are quite good.

    Hopefully it's true then, the furthest date I was able to get from any location was Feb 6th. If I pass, fantastic... if not, oh well, at least I tried.

    Just passed the 74-409 today, its kind of hard but the free training that their offering at the MVA is really good.

    i use the free server virtualization course at MVA with symon perriman and corey hynes. They are so good in explaining every detail of the Hyper-V. Then read the book Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V SYBEX. I also use technet because there are lot of technical info that you will find there. Download the free Windows Server 2012 R2. Its free for 180 days. Just play with it and familiarized yourself with Hyper-V and System Center and you're good to go. I register for the exam Dec, 21 then take it January 9.

    Anyone else having issues creating a Prometric account? I've tried at least a dozen different times using Chrome, FireFox and IE on two different computers. Nothing works.

    I fill in the information and submit it, I get a popup saying processing, then it just returns me back to the signup page with no explanation.

    Am I missing something?

    Does anybody know what this exam will count towards? Will it help with MCSA or something? I'm not too familiar with the Microsoft certification structure.

    Thanks

    Scheduled for the 31st.

    Never used Hyper-V, so two weeks of hard learning xD. I think I'm gonna use just the training they provide.

    I'm glad that many people are jumping in on this. With virtualization being so commonplace today, this cert will definitely help anyone who wants to break into that sector. From what I've heard from others that have taken it, the test does challenge your knowledge, but nothing ridiculous. The MVA training plus some testing w/ Server 2012 should definitely have people ready. I'm scheduled for Feb 6, and feel that I'm pretty set for it.

    Any free text-based resources? The MVA's videos are great, but I feel I grasp new concepts better reading than watching.

    I'm looking for some printed stuff also. I registered and seen the videos can be downloaded as MP4 or WMV so I am downloading them to put on my iPad. If I find any printed material I will post it here.

    You can also download the slides that they use in the videos. FYI

    Just a side note as I will be taking this in a month or so you can go to itdvds.com and use that as study material as well. He has an entire series on Hyper-V 2012R2 and VMM 2012R2. Its $25 for a month subscription. He also has lots of other study material so might as well use that after you finish up with this cert.

    after a while searching, it seems there is no specific material for the 74-409 exam, just the MVA's videos and TechNet's posts.

    Hi, ( and thanks to poster! )

    Im going to do this one in march so hopefully plenty of study time!

    Only experience so far is using the old virtual pcs and running XP VM in windos 7.

    Just to confirm that when you go to the MS virtual academy and sign in/up for the needed course these are all free of charge?? ( it looks so )

    The cert is called Microsoft Certified Specialist: Server Virtualization with Hyper-V and System Center, anyone aware of how this sits? eg below an MCP or MCTS?

    Hopefully another one to bang out - fingers crossed!

    x3 on this. I am going to re-sched for end of March (30$ fee but cheaper than paying for actual exam) and am looking to find out the same. I recently passed the VCA-DCV and the free videos were more than sufficient if you have a somewhat understanding of VMware.

    Looking to see if the videos on MVA are sufficient enough for this as well.

    ( can someone just confirm my crazed rants please? )

    The hyper v product is just a standalone product that you can install to a 64 bit box. You then need another 64 bit box running 2012 server r2 that administers the hyper v box via a snap in.

    For the sake of this exam you dont want to be just using the Hyper V role and tools direct on the server 2012 box.

    Im asking as I have only 1 64 bit box available. ( the other available just a single core 32 bit box - currently with win 7 on it )

    Any info welcome
