MCP Exam Security and Integrity

I believe that this news is a good start to be the very first post for the year. Because having the pride of being an MCP myself, I was thrilled to see that Microsoft has updated its MCP site. I may say it illiterates the seriousness against exam and certification fraud. I have already this hint from colleagues in the IT world like Mafi_Mok (Faelmar) on getVirtualnow! event last December on Microsoft Philippines where we have briefly talked about exam cheating, we had our hopes up that Microsoft has already tighten its certification security. Another hint is when I have gone to test for Exam 70-282 Designing, Deploying, and Managing a Network Solution for a Small- and Medium-Sized Business, the receptionist told me that only a few ever pass the 70-282 and they are also questioning exam takers that do exams in minutes!

So here are some links on the MCP sites that you may want to be interested if you are planing (like me) to take up an exam this year.
