We are opening up 300 beta seats for this beta exam (Exam 70-703) . . . This means that starting March 8, 2018, you can register to take the exam for an 80% discount!! (Why beta exams are no longer free.) BUT . . . the seats are limited to a first-come, first-served basis. You must register by May 15, 2018 and take it by May 31, 2018. We need you take the exam as soon as possible so we can leverage your comments, feedback, and exam data in our evaluation of the quality of the questions. The sooner you take the exam, the more likely it is that we will be able to use your feedback to make improvements to the exam. This is your chance to have a voice in the questions we include on the exam when it goes live. The rescore process starts on the day that exams go live and final scores are released approximately 10 days later. Follow me on Twitter (@libertymunson) for updates on when the rescore is complete. For questions about the timing of beta exam scoring and live exam release, see blog articles on The Path from Beta Exam to Live Exam and More Tips About Beta Exams.
To prepare for the exam, review our prep guide and practice the skills listed. Need other ideas? Check out my recent blog for ideas.
***Register for the exam and use code RXRET703ZX when prompted for payment to take it with an 80% discount. (Why isn't the beta exam free anymore? Read this!) This is NOT a private access code. This code is only valid for exam dates on or before May 31, 2018.
Remember: There are a limited number of spots, so when they're gone, they're gone. You should also be aware that there are some country limitations where the beta code will not work (e.g., Turkey, Pakistan, India, China, Vietnam); you will not be able to take the beta exam in those countries.
Also, keep in mind that this exam is in beta, which means that you will not be scored immediately. You will receive your final score and passing status once the exam is live.

The details for exam 70-703 states “Credit toward certification: MCSA” - is this accurate or subject to change? Was expecting it would credit towards MCSE Mobility but not any MCSA?
I have the same question as Troy.
This exam replaces 70-696 which was an elective for the MSCE Mobility track. I assumed it will also count as an elective towards the MCSE Mobility certification, but the exam page says it is a credit towards an MCSA so now I am wondering where it will fit in.
Nice! Scheduled to take this Friday morning :)
@Troy Phillips and @Jacques Bence, thanks for finding that error. I've asked for MCSA to be changed to MCSE on the 70-703 exam details page.
You are both correct that Exam 70-703 replaces 70-696 which was an elective for the MSCE Mobility certification. So 703 will still be an elective for the same certification.
New 70-703 exam test is out.
@Lisa Weber, I am trying to register for the exam and I can not, I apply the discount coupon and trying to make the payment error occurs.
@Claudeilton Dantas Do you mean that you are trying to register for the exam at www.microsoft.com/.../dump ***-70-703.aspx
Is there any other source that you can recommend to prepare for the upcoming certification
@Lisa Weber, yes, I can not register, I had my access blocked by attempts to purchase and now I am looking for information with VUE PEARSON, because I can not finalize the purchase, the test period is exhausted?
