Thanks, Uwe!
Is there any additional hardware required except camera with microphone and broadband connection?

Prometric are no longer involved in the lab exams, you have to sit them from home using a Lync client and remote proctoring. Thats a signiificant change (for the better exam experience wise, for the worse cost wise!)
Worth mentioning here in case not everyone is aware.
Best wishes


Are you sure that's true. I thought I heard from someone in Dec that took the lab in a Prometric location.

Steve,
that's true. I made my first try in November 2012 and failed. I got the information about my results in january and wanted to retake asap. From Prometric I got the information that LAB cannot be booked over Prometric anymore. I had to contact Microsoft direct.

You get more details from Microsoft direct by sending them an email to advcert@microsoft.com

Thanks, and interesting. I just saw Robert's note about new exams, so that makes sense. I was wondering since I'd rather take it at home than in a center, though I'm not sure I'll pursue this further. I missed the first attempt at the Knowledge exam and am not sure I want to dig in further to take it again.

Hallo Vedran,

the charge for the LAB is 2.500,00 USD but i get a refund of 500 USD (see my previous post!)
I do not know the charging amount for the Knowledgetest but I've paid 375.00 € = ~ 500 USD.


And to be clear, the remote option is for the lab exam only. The knowledge exam must still be taken at Prometric.

Hi guys, I just took the remote lab exam about 3 weeks ago, just wondering if anyone knows what the turnaround time for the results is nowadays. I've read online about people getting a way different waiting time so I'm not sure when to expect them.

Looks like you will not be able to just take the knowledge exam to get MCSM SQL 2012

https://fast.omnisocial.mzinga.com/content/ss/eda339aac39b4c42a7f089442bfd62a8/newhomepage/PriceList.html

need to do recertification training which last three years
MCSM: Recertification Training Rotation $13,875 USD per person, per rotation*

That is a lot of cash + accommodation + travel + non-billable time.

That's not for SQL Server. It's for the other programs (Like Exchange) that still have the on-site training as a requirement. They are re-introducing on-site training for SQL Server, but it will be completely optional.
