    Also, there's quite a few live/on-demand webcasts over at Microsoft.

    Since I'm on 284, I really want to watch that 14 part series on exchange 2003. I would like to catch up on some of the 2007 videos also, but that won't be for a while.

    Earlier this month I also took the beta exam for Exchange 2007 (71-236). And I found it sometimes very difficult! There where a lot of question about the cmdlets. And because there was almost no study material, most of the questions I had to guess!

    Now i'm waiting for the score......

    Some guys at work took it and they stated you need to know a lot of the powershell equivalents to things you can do in the gui. Sounds like it's a very difficult MS exam.

    Also, how are you guys getting beta invites? Is there somewhere you can sign up for them?

    The 'regular' MCP Flash newsletters don't contain the beta invitations codes, but when you are subscribed to it, you 'may' receive a special version with the code in it. If I remember correctly it actually used to have "Special" in the subject-line. In the following topic are some more thoughts about improving chances to get invited for beta exams:
