On the MCTS Exam for PerformancePoint Server 2007

The single Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist exam (70-556) for PerformancePoint Server 2007 is now available at Prometric. Microsoft Learning luminary Trika Harms zum Spreckel provided a preview of the exam requirements for the then-beta version of the exam here.

Just be certain to leave Tim Kent and Sacha Tomey alone.... they won't divulge any secrets.... :-)

Update (25 - JAN - 2008):
The Microsoft official preparation guide for exam 70-556 can be found here.

Update (29 - JAN - 2008):
I just sat and passed this exam today. Without giving anything away, I can confirm that pretty much all of the measurement areas shown in the prep guide appear in the exam. Good hunting!

LOL - If I told you then I's have to..... :)

What I can say is that the topics are pretty much as per Trika's write-up. The exam is very heavily Planning biased with only a few questions on Monitoring

I think I'm probably allowed to say that there is NO Proclarity in the exam
