U.S. release of 83-640 TS: Windows Server 2008, Active Directory Configuring

June 2, 2009 at 2:52 pm | Posted in Microsoft, Performance-Based Testing | 2 Comments

On the heels of several announcements from Microsoft in the past month, we have confirmed that 83-640 TS: Windows Server 2008, Active Directory Configuring — the version utilizing performance-based testing — is released in the U.S. (For a recap of the differences between 70-640 and 83-640, check our previous blog post.)

The test’s release was actually announced right after Tech*Ed, but at the time we couldn’t find 83-640 offered on Prometric’s site. Today, however, it’s official: you can register for the 83-640 in the U.S. — and, in fact, several of our team plan to do so (with our shiny Get on the Bus free exam vouchers, no less).

Microsoft has announced a phased roll-out for 83-640 in other countries throughout 2009. We have confirmed the release of this exam in English in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, and Singapore. If you are in other countries, I strongly suggest you contact Prometric directly to ask which test is being offered in your country and preferred language, and to ask if 70-640 has been deprecated in your area.

Need help prepping for this new testing experience?  Check out our offering for the 83-640 exam. Along with our award-winning questions, it includes our own performance-based testing engine that mimics Microsoft’s virtual lab testing environment.

  1. Available in the UK as well – the 70-640 is no longer available in US ENGLISH.

    • Thanks; that’s good to know!

      I played with Prometric’s site some more this morning and found the 83-640 available for scheduling in the U.K. and Australia as well (plus the aforementioned countries), while the 70-640 was the only version offered in Germany and China. (Then I switched over to doing actual work, so this is NOT a comprehensive list.)

      As far as I know, the 83-640 is only offered in US ENGLISH for any location.
