In February of this year, I posted here about two BETA exams of Windows Vista focused on the connected experience: Windows Vista Connected Experience: Home Theater for Sales Professional (70-626) and Windows Vista Connected Experience: Home Theater for Technologists (70-625).
These exams cover the ability of Media Center (In my opinion, the best Vista application) to connect and interact with other devices, allowing media streaming. These devices could be an Xbox 360, a Windows Home Server or a Media Extender.
At that time, I posted twice. In the first one, I explained a little more about this technology, its functionalities and advantages, and also commented about the topics covered by these two exams. In the second one, I posted about the beta period of these exams, which were extended to March 31st.
For those whom haven’t read these posts, the links are (Portuguese): http://herleson.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!8ACB9B8FAEDBCB6F!962.entry and http://herleson.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!8ACB9B8FAEDBCB6F!980.entry.
Today, after seven months since the day that I took these exams, I wanna to share a great new: I was approved in BOTH exams! I’m really happy with these positive results, ‘cause I studied only two days before the exams, and the beta period was almost at the end (It was before the extend).
I wish to dedicate these two great conquests to my only and truly love, Priscila, for all the support and dedication that she has with me. I LOVE YOU, MY SWEET PRISCILA.
