      Anyone else having a hard time registering for the Beta 71-178 exam? I have been trying and receiving errors for the past 2 hours.

      The site is extremely slow and kicked me out as well.  I was able to register the second time.  Try evenings when the site isn’t so busy.
      Good luck…Larry Christofaro

      Immediately after receiving the code for the Beta exam, I too tried to register on the Prometric web site. The site was not only slow but, was also acting VERY strangely. After signing in, and after having gone through several screens in the registration process, the site would send me back to the beginning and ask me to sign in again. Which was strange since I could clearly see that I was still signed in and there was a link available for me to sign out. This happened at least three to four times. Finally, after having tried for over a half-hour, I gave up and called the Prometric service center. Guess what? Their systems were just as slow and the representative who answered my call had to get her supervisor to put my request through their system. All in all, after an hour and twenty minutes, and having been put on hold four different times, I was finally registered for the exam and I am now good to go.
      So for all of you out there, please practice patience and just remember, this will definitely be worth the "trouble" once done!! Good luck!!

      I too tried the same day I got the codes and it took me 4 hrs to get the final approval for the exam date/time
      I hope rest of you had the same luck in the end.
      Wish you all the best of luck
      If you are okay lets use this forum to talk about what each of us are doing to prepare of the exam

      Try registering by calling the 800 number. I did that after being unsuccessful at registering online.

      To prepare I am using the list included in the MPUG posting:
      There is also a list on the Microsoft Training website:
      Good luck!

      The "What you need to know" section on the Elizabeth’s first link is a good guideline. I am using the book "Step by Step Project 2010" published by Microsoft for my review. It addresses the knowledge areas on the list and provides the basic steps. The book helps because it has hands on exercises as well.
