Exame 71-688 – Managing and Maintaining Windows 8

Foi com muita alegria que recebi o convite da Microsoft para a realização de um exame Beta sobre Windows 8.

As áreas de sistemas operativos e virtualização nem são as minhas áreas de eleição para obter uma certificação, nem o timming é o ideal, mas mesmo assim vou abraçar este desafio e no dia 31 de Outubro lá estarei a realizar o exame 71-688 Managing and Maintaining Windows 8.
