What We’re Working On – May Edition

May 11, 2010 at 1:32 pm | Posted in Kaplan IT Training news | 2 Comments


The first order of business this month is to call up the month of April and find out where the time went! The days flew by, but we managed to get plenty accomplished. Now we’re geared up to make the most of May.

We’ve already seen the release of 70-565C# and VB. With six new .NET 4.0 beta tests under his belt, Josh is just now coming up for breath. We thought about placing bets on how many exams Josh may have passed with the limited time & resources available for him to study during the beta period, but realized that might tip him over the edge, so we stayed out of his way instead. The last of the .NET 3.5 Upgrade practice test products is now available, so check out Cert-70-569 in VB and C# so you can catch up on your Developer certifications before the new exams roll out this summer!

Robin is making some final revisions to her Project+ product so we can have a PK0-003 offering on the shelves by the end of the month. Troy will begin work on the first of our new CCNP practice test products in a couple of weeks. I can’t quite gauge his level of excitement over this new track. I think he’s caught somewhere between the anxiety of fulfilling our customers’ need for study materials and the responsibility of making sure everyone that uses our product passes their exam. As usual, though, I expect he’ll knock it outta the park.

George will start development of the Windows 7 Upgrade practice test, 70-682, this month. As has been reported on various blogs and forums, there are no Microsoft Press books or E-Learning training courses specific to the 70-682 available. You can, however, get a jump start on studying with reference materials and courseware for the 70-680 and 70-685, as the 70-682 Upgrade exam is a combination of the Configuring and EDS Technician exams. Find great links to materials directly from Microsoft.

Now that you’re updated on what’s going on around here, be sure to let us know what’s going on with your certification prep! We love to get your questions & comments, and will do what we can to reply and/or point you in the right direction.

Until June!

  1. Just wanted to know if you plan to release 70-653 soon

    • Hi Bruce,
      Unfortunately, no. While we did release the 70-654 (Essential Business Server) practice test, we don’t currently plan to offer the Small Business Server product. This may be something we reconsider in the future, but nothing on our 2010 plans.

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we’ll be sure to announce any change in the project plans!
