For a long time Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Access exams have been available. Then the SharePoint MOS exam became available in June 2011. Now, for the first time, OneNote will have its place (and exam ) in Microsoft Office Specialist series of exams and certifications.
The Beta exam will be alive September 12 through October 4, 2011, meaning you will have three weeks to arrange your schedule to take this one. Here is the list of participating test centers. If you have questions, ask Stacey Tilley, Beta coordinator at Certiport: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review what skills you will be tested on at 77-853: OneNote 2010 Skills Measured tab and hurry, reserve your seat early!
Good luck on your exam!
