    Took the exam and failed with 665 (pass score is 700 as any other MS cert), I went halfway through the MVA course.

    I can say that the test is very balanced between Hyper-V and System Center (Entire suite) questions, some powershell on it also. Almost all questions are scenario based ("You work for a compant with X servers", and so on.).

    I advise you guys to not go for the test with only Hyper-V knowledge or you'll fail (just like me!).

    My plan is to retake the test in a month or so, finish the MVA course, read some articles on technet, and if possible lab a little.

    Btw, I also have some experience with Hyper-V Clustering, but haven't worked much with SC suite.

    @triplea, you can install and use GUI (Hyper-V manager) to administer it (Create VM's, VHD's, Virtual Switches), or use a WIN7/8 desktop to remote admin it. But you'll need a clustered hyper-v and SCVMM to unleash the full powers of it.

    Also I don't know what's the deal of Microsoft having this standalone virtualization cert, maybe the MCITP Virtualization Administrator return?

    Thanks for the info.

    So you can add a GUI to the hyper v box directly?

    Guys, I passed it today w 814. No so hard, but also not an easy one. The time is enough.
    about the questions: a lot is about clustering. there are a few powershell as well, but not so much. there were 55 questions, I think I had 5-8 drag n drop type also: such as create a virtual switch, and what kind of steps are needed.
    good luck!

    Awesome, thanks for the tips y'all. I work with Server 2012 in various clustered configurations, also with SCVMM and the SC suite, so I'm hoping this one won't be too difficult.

    Edit: As a matter of fact, just finished rebuilding a 2012 DR cluster member as I type this

    I must have either done something wrong when trying to use the voucher as it said that it wasn't valid, that or all the free exams have been taken already. Oh well not a big concern.

    Just curious, if you fail the exam, do you have to pay out-of-pocket to retake it? Or can the voucher be used again?

    DoodahGurlie, you can use the voucher only one time.

    If you have another MVA/E-mail you can get another voucher.

    Passed this exam this morning. Used the MVA videos, Sybex book and TrainSignal videos. I have zero experience with Hyper V and little with vmWare. MVA alone was not enough IMO, you need at least MVA + Sybex book. Good luck to those studying for this exam!

    CarlSaiyed... Congrats on passing!! What Sybex book did you use? I could not find one on this particular exam. Could you point me to the trainsignal videos also? I plan on taking this one next month and it would be a great help. Thanks

    Tried to get voucher tonight and got:

    "Our apologies but due to popular demand, we are currently out of vouchers. Please come back in 48 hours to request your voucher."

    Guess I will have to try again in a couple days?

    Thanks! I used this book from amazon and these videos from Pluralsight (used to be trainsignal until they merged). Good luck!

    Thank you CarlSaiyed. I was going to ask if it it was those resources that you used or not. Congrats on the pass and the feedback.

    I have no experience with Win Server 2012, Hyper V or Virtualization.

    Where should I start for studying this test ?

    @aswebdev start out with the MVA course and then get the Sybex book. Lab everything you can. If you work hard on all three you can pass this exam.

    Yep, just tried signing up... same message. Guess we either missed the boat or they are slowing down on giving them out. I'll try again in a couple days.
