What We’re Working on – The November Edition

We’re trying to wake up from our candy comas and trying to stay focused before the turkey hits the dinner table – we’re really really trying…promise. We’re also trying to accomplish the following in November:

After a quick exhale once Cert-70-563 hit the shelves, Josh got busy on writing content to help you pass 70-564, PRO: Designing and Developing ASP.NET Applications Using the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. He’s hoping to wrap that up and get a couple of upgrade exams on the shelf before the holidays…sleep is overrated.

Despite the expletives mumbled under his breath lately, George has nothing but great things to say about the next Windows 7 practice exam. While we’re well aware that Microsoft may release both 70-685 and 70-686 around the same time, we’ve only got one dedicated developer writing our practice test, and contrary to popular belief, we do let him go home occasionally, so we’ve chosen to tackle the 70-685, PRO: Windows 7, Enterprise Desktop Support Technician practice test first. (For George’s take on the Windows 7 certifications to date, check out his blog post here.)

Although we’re still bugging her with the production details involved in getting the new A+ practice products to market, Robin has cracked open Shon Harris’s 4th Edition  CISSP Exam Guide in search of new info that we may need to cover in our product. This month, she’ll be dusting off our Transcender CISSP practice test to bring you updated references and ensure we don’t have gaps in any knowledge areas covered by the Fourth Edition. And if you caught that reference to our A+ practice tests, we do indeed have a couple of great products to help you prepare for CompTIA’s redesigned certification track. They’re back to the 2-exam A+ track, and we’re days away from releasing an updated practice test for both Essentials (220-701) and Practical Application (220-702)! In the meantime, you can get some great A+ exam info here.

Despite our sluggishness once the last of the Halloween candy was gone, we’re really excited about the chill in the air, the fall colors outside our windows, and the products we’re developing in the next few weeks! As always, please keep the comments and product requests coming. We love to hear from you, and we always consider your certification study needs when planning our next project.

  1. You said “After a quick exhale once Cert-70-563 hit the shelves, Josh got busy on writing content to help you pass 70-564, PRO: Designing and Developing ASP.NET Applications Using the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. He’s hoping to wrap that up and get a couple of upgrade exams on the shelf before the holidays…” Are those couple of upgrade exams you’re referencing 70-568 and 70-569?

    • Umm… unfortunately not. In order to get to the 70-568 and 70-569, we’d need to complete the 70-565, which is not slated to happen this year. Howver, early next year, you can expect the 70-565 to be released, and then 70-568 and 70-569 immediately following.

      What you can expect before the end of 2009 is our release of the 70-566 and 70-567.
