    Exclamation Microsoft offering FREE exam voucher for Exam 74-409: Server Virtualization w/ HyperV

    Hey everyone,

    I came across this on Slickdeals. Microsoft is offering free training and exam vouchers for the 74-409 Exam which covers Server Virtualization with Hyper-V and System Center. Seems to be a pretty easy cert to get, so go for it. Space is limited, so register ASAP. The site says that you must register by June 2014, however they mention that the vouchers are limited, and to schedule your exam right away. I am going to schedule my test right away for a month or so in advance to lock in mine.

    Here's the link:

    I just registered for the 28th. I haven't seen much of the materials since I'm currently at work, but it seems pretty easy and straightforward. This one is really nice because you actually become a MCP once you receive it, so I'm motivated to knock it out fast.

    Great find!

    I signed up for Jan 30th just to reserve the voucher. Maybe i'll reschedule and knock it out at the end of the month depending on the content.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Ill keep trying to register, but I get a long error with a report...maybe they are overloaded.

    A question though, are they setting up a Hyper-v MCSA track? Where does this MCTS fit within the MCSA/E scheme?

    edit: And thanks!

    It is just the same thing they had for Server 2008R2, for 2012 now. They did not have a MCSA for it before and I think the same will occur for this one unless a huge demand comes up for more advanced training on it..which could very much happen with the rapid adoption of Hyper-V for virtualization.

    I did this same thing for 2008R2, helped me get some virtualization experience, built up a Hyper-V environment for a SME and now I am working in a VMware environment at a different job. Who knows, might try out some Server 2012 or wait for Hyper-V v4 ish..

    I took the exam today with the free voucher. I probably spent around 10-15 hours studying and passed with an 828 on this exam. I think the exam is fairly easy as most of my experience is with VMware. I do not do many Microsoft exams so I am not sure if this is typical.

    Hi All,

    I knew about this free exam while ago and watched the live jumpstart on MVA. Does anyone know if studying the jumpstart will be enough to pass or if anyone knows of further exam prep materials?

    Cheers

    I scheduled an exam at Pearson Vue, the same place I'm taking my CCNA Voice exam. Not only does it not show it in my schedule, but it doesn't even show microsoft as a testing platform at this exam center that was listed (and scheduled) for me to sit this exam.

    Anyone else run into this?

    I thought Microsoft only offered tests (other than MTAs which go through Certiport, a division of Pearson Vue) through Prometric sites. Did you schedule over the phone? Maybe the site offers Prometric and just didn't mention it.

    Had no issues, scheduled it online and got an email confirmation from emailconfirmations@prometric.com

    Did you complete the whole process to get the voucher code and then scheduled the exam?

    I actually took a screenshot of the confirmation page, as I didn't get a confirmation email, which seemed weird as I didget one for registering to pro-metric.

    Anyone tried this cert yet? It say's on the confirmation that the exam duration is 3 hours 15 minutes, and that seems a bit absurd.

    I'm pretty sure that time includes the 30 minute pre-exam survey which takes less than 5 minutes to do... I'd expect it to be 2h 45m, maybe even a little bit less.

    I took the exam before New Years....Thirty minutes of time for the survey and 2:45 for the exam. I think I spent around an hour on the actual exam so they give way more time than needed.
