    Signed up for it, as I have been testing and researching 2010. If i pass the exam, what cert does it count towards?

    I don't know but I am willing to guess it will probably be good for at least an MCTS and probably towards an upcoming MCITP in exchange 2010

    Well, im trying to figure out the plan. From what I gather, 662 is the configuring exam and gives the MCTS, and 663 is the design exam and gives the MCITP. I could be wrong though.

    Either way, I will have fun taking the exam.

    I think they reduced the amount of exams in 2010. Reason why I say that is because in Exchange 2007 there was a Configuration, Design, and Deploy. This exam is both Design and Deploy. So I bet that this exam is basically the equivalent of 237 and 238 and will give you the MCITP.

    I think youre right. http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-663 says it gives MCITP. The skills listed do not make this exam look easy.

    Someone made a mistake with this beta...
    71-663 beta exam update | born to learn
    For the new Exchange 2010 beta (71-663: Pro: Designing and Deploying Messaging Solutions with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010) the beta cap limit was inadvertently left blank. This means that more than three times as many candidates have registered for the beta than we had planned for.
    Because of this, Prometric will unfortunately be contacting some candidates that were inadvertently allowed to register for 71-663 after we had reached the beta cap. I don’t know who these folks are so I would plan on taking the beta unless you are contacted by Prometric. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of the situation, and as a token of our appreciation Microsoft will provide those folks who were inadvertently allowed to register with a voucher to take the Exchange exam for free when it goes live after the first of the year. You won’t be able to take the exam early but at least you won’t have to pay for 70-663.

    And just in time to take the live exam when it is released on Friday.

    I've got mine as well - but I think it may not be working together with the Second Shot. I never could use two vouchers at the same time (i.e. 15% off and SecondShot)
