This is a beta exam, so shouldn't the examnumber be 71-403 instead of 70-43?
Typo: 71-403 instead of 70-403
I can't find either 70-403 or 71-403 on Prometric.
That could be correct Havard, the registration process starts at September 23rd, so wait untill next tuesday before looking on the Prometric website again ;-)

M-am hotarât să evaluez mai serios noul SC-VMM 2008. Şi ca să am o motivaţie, m-am înscris ca beta-tester
The prep guide is not available yet (or the link in the post is incorrect).
I’ve just come back from the Global Knowledge Testing Centre in Wokingham, where I’ve sat the 70-403
Seems we've run out of Promotion Codes!
The maximum count for the promotion has been exceeded. Please try another promotion.
As it's also been extended to December 15th!
Promotion Codes have run out! Will we be able to take the beta until December 15th as promised in the "introducing virtualization" meeting?
What about the results of this beta exam? They were supposed to be out about 4 weeks after the beta period ended (24 October) but now we're 8 weeks past and the exam still shows "Tested" in my Prometric account instead of "Passed" or "Failed".
