We’ll be opening registration for the following beta exam soon:

  • 70-599   Designing and Developing Windows Phone 7 Applications

 

As with every beta exam, seats are limited. We’ll be using our MSL SME database to recruit for the first round of beta participants. For your best chance of participating, create a SME profile by filling out the survey on the MSL SME site on Microsoft Connect. (See this post for more information.) If you have already created your SME profile, make sure that you update it to reflect your interest in taking a beta exam and your experience with Windows Phone 7.

A few days before registration opens, we’ll send a notification to qualified SMEs through Connect. The notification will include the beta code. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail mslcd@microsoft.com.

    Hello beta friends,

    In the last hour, I've heard from two people on different continents who were trying to register that the beta code isn't working. Can anyone confirm that they were able to register successfully? I'm trying to figure out if this is a widespread or isolated issue.

    Reminder: don't post the beta code here or the seats might fill up before you get a chance to register.

    Thanks

    Krista

    The Promotion Code I received yesterday isn't working when I register through the Prometric website! I've contacted you via e-mail, but understand you aren't in the office until April 4. What to do now?

    Hi,

    Same here in Sweden. I can not register with the promo code that was sent in the beta exam invite. Interestingly, its the same promo code for silverlight exam that ran last year during Oct-Nov so i believe its just a copy paste error ;-)

    Please let us (WP7 exam aspirants) know how to proceed with registrations.

    thanks!

    Hi Guys,

    I'm having trouble signing in to B2L so posting as a guest. The error is all mine. I sent out the wrong promo code. I'll be sending out a fresh e-mail with the correct promo code shortly. There are quite a few of you who e-mailed me directly which is fantastic. The correct promo code has been sent to you. For the rest of you, stay tuned. I'll get that fresh e-mail out in the next 15 minutes or so. And don't hesitate to contact me directly for the correct promo code. (amandaw@microsoft.com).
