Want to earn a Certified Charter Status on System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Exam 70-243?

If you are preparing or planning to pass newly released Microsoft System Center 2010 Configuration Manager Exam 70-243, you will feel limitations in availability of Learning Plans, Tools, Microsoft Official Courses, Study Guides, and Online Material as exam is pretty much new and released in last month.

Microsoft Official Courses for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager (10747AB and 10748AB) are available in beta and these courses utilizes RC1 software in the virtual machine for the labs (which is not a good idea for now as product is in GA).

To be eligible for a charter member status (pass the exam within six months from the first date that the certification can be earned), you can start preparation of exam now and I found a very useful study guide published by Keith Mayer TechNet Blog.

This guide is organized and based on the “Skills Being Measured” specified in Exam 70-243 requirements.

Although this guide is NOT intended as a replacement for formal training on System Center 2012 Configuration Manager but it is a good starting point.

Start preparation and Happy Hunting!
