Microsoft are offering a free MCSA upgrade exam for Windows 2012
As a MCSA in Windows 2008, the next step for me is to upgrade
first to the MCSA 2012, then onto my MCSE in Server Infrastructure,
MCSE Desktop Infrastructure and finally the MCSE in Private
This means a lot of exams and they all start with the following: Exam 417 (Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012.)
Microsoft is offering exam 417 for free along with free training and free second chances to pass the exams. In order to get for example the MCSE Private Cloud, we have to sit exam 417, 246 and 247. We pay for the 246 and 247, and the 417 is free. This offer applies to anyone upgrading MCSA: Windows Server 2008 to either a MCSE: Server Infrastructure, MCSE: Desktop Infrastructure, or MCSE: Private Cloud certifications.
