So, about two months ago I found out that Microsoft was giving away exam vouchers for the 74-409, so I grabbed one up, and started studying, despite the fact that I had never used System Center before in my life, much less gone in depth with things like Data Protection Manager, or Service Manager.
Well. I took the exam on the 30th, and scored an 875. =D After waiting for a couple weeks for my exam results to be passed back to Microsoft, I have my transcript and can legitimately say that I now have my Microsoft Certified Specialist: Server Virtualization with Hyper-V and System Center 2012.
I think I'm going to add that whole line to my email sig.
Anyway, some people will say it's not much to be proud of, I'm sure. But I am extremely pleased with myself, and as it looks now, this will help my employer, as we're moving to a unified Microsoft solution for our infrastructure (currently on novell/vmware/other third party), and now will be pursuing my MCSE for Server 2012.
Now I'm wondering, how many people here took this exam?
