Posted by Rubel Khan on March 16, 2010

Become Indispensable

Did you join us last week for our Windows 7 exam cram? If you did, you know that MCT Craig Brown did a great job of prepping everyone for the Windows 7 exams. If you couldn’t make it, you missed a session in which 100% of the attendees said they’re now better-prepared to take their exams and 85% said that they feel more confident in going into their tests. On top of all that, two lucky winners received exam vouchers as a thank you for attending.

Did you miss out? Not really. You can access the recorded version of the Windows 7 exam cram online.

Register now for future exam cram sessions in our Career Series!

Join MCT Dan Neurenberg this Thursday, March 18th for a Windows Server 2008 Virtualization Exam Cram. He’ll cover exams 70-659 and 70-403. The first part of the presentation will cover what to expect on these exams and then he’ll be taking your questions. Once again, we’ll be selecting one attendee from each session to receive a voucher for a Microsoft exam, so be sure to get this on your calendar!

Then, on March 23rd, Kyle Rosenthal will present “Career Specialization for Help Desk technicians: Skills necessary to become a Network Administrator.” Whether you’re looking to break into the field or advance your current career, this session will help you chart your career and reach your goals.
