Stressing out about taking your MCSE exams for Exchange 2013?
More attendees at Microsoft’s last TechEd Europe event asked about Exchange 2013 migration than migrations to Exchange Online. Although the demise of on-premises Exchange Server is regularly touted, many organizations want to perform the next upgrade now that Exchange 2010 is out of support.
With that in mind, Microsoft released Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) exam preparation guides for two Exchange 2013 MCSE exams: 70-341 — Core Solutions of Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 and 70-342 — Advanced Solutions of Microsoft Exchange Server 2013. The test taker earns his MCSE: Messaging certification with these two exams.
The Messaging MCSE certification covers Exchange 2013 in two parts to build a solid foundation. The first exam, 70-342, covers four areas:
- Planning, installation and managing the transport role
- Installing, configuring and managing the mailbox role
- Planning installation and managing client access; and
- The core skills needed to design and manage the overall Exchange infrastructure.
The second exam, 70-342, covers five areas:
- Configuration, management and migration of the unified messaging role;
- Design, configuration and management of site resiliency;
- Design, configuration and management of advanced security;
- Configuration and management of compliance, archiving and discovery; and
- Implementation and management of hybrid scenarios including migration and federation.
