Developers Needed! Participate in the Visual Studio 2012 Beta Exam Process

Do you have experience using Visual Studio 2012? Want to help me determine which the questions that will appear on certification exam? If so, I have just the thing for you! We currently have seven Visual Studio 2012 certification exams in beta. By using the code in the table below, you can take the beta exam for free. But HURRY! The seats are available on a first come, first served basis, and the opportunity to take them for free will expire when all of the seats have been filled or on the expiration dates listed below (we've extended some of these dates), whichever comes first. To register for one of these exams, go to:, and follow the prompts.
Exam Code Codes Expire
481: Essentials of Developing Windows Metro style Apps using HTML5 and JavaScript FYT481 8/20
482: Advanced Metro style App Development using HTML5 and JavaScript GXZ482 8/17
