While a few people were at work yesterday I was able to get in another beta test for the upcoming new generation of certifications.  The test was listed as below:

Beta Exam 71-529: TS: Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 - Distributed
Application Development [Beta version of Exam 70-529]

Anyhow, here is my interpritation of the test.  Since it was a Distributed test most of the material was centered around Web Services and Remoting.  It was a total of 73 questions long and for the beta it gave a very generous amount of time to answer questions and provide some good feedback. 

Most of the questions were centered around WSE 3.0 and security.  Also there was a good amount of questions on some of the newer features that have been added in 2.0. 

I felt that it was a good test and that many of the questions represented real world examples and concerns.  Of course I am not sure if I passed or failed since it was a beta test and I am not told until after it goes live, but Pass or Fail it was a good test.  Strange as it might sound I actually enjoyed it since it was closely related to real examples and usage.

Even though it is still a bit early if you wanted to get an idea on how to get more information about preparation for the test or areas covered check out the preparation guide here.

Thanks for your comments. I was one of a number of authors on the exam and we worked hard to make sure that the questions were as reasonable and real-world as possible.
