I just read a post from Rob Caron announcing the availability of the preparation guide for Exam 70-510, Technology Specialist: Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server. He also announces that the exam is now live for anyone interested in pursuing this certification.
As you may have noticed in other posts, the results for the 71-510 beta exam are starting to show up on participant transcripts (on the MCP member site). If you took the test a couple of months back then you may be able see your results by now. I checked mine today to find out that I passed the exam. Now that the beta results are starting to appear, the "live" exam will probably be available soon. If you're planning on taking the exam, here are a couple of links to help get you started: http://devmatter.blogspot.com/2007/02/beta-exam-71-510-study-links.html http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1302626&SiteID=1
Like several others out there, I am planning on taking the Beta 71-510 exam next week. Being that this is the first time this test has existed, it is difficult to figure out what to study and where to find study materials (other than the obvious - experience with TFS itself). I've put together a few links that I've been using while studying for the exam so I thought I'd post them here in case anyone else finds them useful. Preparation Guide for Exam 70-510 - this is Microsoft's guide detailing what items are covered on the test.

I just saw this post on Rob Caron's blog. Registration for the 71-510 Beta Exam is now open. The exam can be taken between February 20th and March 5th. There are a limited number of slots available on a first-come, first-served basis so sign up quickly! I signed up this evening without any problems. Use the promotion code TSVS510 when registering to cover the cost of the exam. There is a preparation guide available here. The list of topics is quite length so I'll definitely be spending some time brushing up on a few areas. See Rob's post for more details.
