Did you ever want to take a Microsoft exam from home or the office?


Starting today, if you are a U.S. resident (and if you’re not stay tuned—they’ll be expanding soon), you can take dozens of the MCP and MTA exams from the comfort of your home or office through a process called online proctoring by Pearson VUE. Or as Ken Rosen says "Come on, admit it: you’ve always wanted to take one of our exams in your pajamas. I can’t be the only one."

See Ken's blog article here and the details, rules and regulations here.

When you look at the list of exams available you will find numbers like 462-OP (on premise?). Add a 70 in front of the number and remove the "-OP" to find the equivalent exam ID. (70-462).  The "98" series exams just have the normal number with "-OP" added to the end.

Here are some of the "OP Beta" exams that are "in my world" (SharePoint, SQL, etc.):

346-OP Managing Office 365 Identities and Requirements
347-OP Enabling Office 365 Services

410-OP Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012
411-OP Administering Windows Server 2012
412-OP Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services

461-OP Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012
462-OP Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases
463-OP Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012

480-OP Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3

Just took the 70-410op - what a disaster. 5 mins into the exam I was told It was being canceled because my mic was not working. Well I set up the test to use my headphones - within the rules. But after a TSA type webcam interrogation I was told to remove the headphone from my computer as I would not need them. well you see what happened, that's when I lost audio. Bang no valid test. I was however able to finish out the test, non-valid at this point, and it seems like it is a different format then the in person version. about 50% multiple choice and 50% click a tab or item.

I would just go to a testing center if you have the option , at least at this point in time.
