Microsoft announced changes to the Microsoft Certified Master program for Exchange Server 2010 that make it possible for a candidate to sit the two exams in a local testing center instead of travelling to Redmond for them.

They’ve also said that the 3 week training program at Redmond is no longer a requirement to sit the MCM Exchange Server 2010 exams.

    Hi Paul,

    If we keenly look at the price, where I can write only the knowledge exam. And I cant go for the LAB exam, its not because of Technical issue, its because of the Price ( where my yearly salary is less than the exam fee)

    So my question is, If I take only the knowledge exam and if i’m not going to take to lab exam, will I get an MCM knowledge exam passed certification? MCM will it appear on the my profile? Can I say to others that Im an MCM?

      Raj, you should refer to the official Microsoft page for the most accurate information, but from what I understand you will need to sit both exams to obtain the certification.
