I’m Windows Internals certified!

Congratulations on passing your recent Microsoft Certification exam, inspiring confidence for your employer, your peers, and yourself with a widely-recognized validation of your skills on Microsoft technology.

    Congratulations! I took my exam in Boston around the same time you did, and took a train and a trolley to the test center. I got the same email you did around midnight EST Friday so I passed too!

    Congratulations, could you tell me how do you prepare for this exam (books, etc.). I don’t know where to start…

    Windows Internals book I can recommend or wait for my books Windows Internals Distilled and Windows Debugging Notebook which should be published next year. Note: the last two books were not designed specifically for exam but discuss and provide an overview of many topics from the exam curriculum.

    Current release of Windows Internals book (4th edition) concern Windows 2000/XP/2003, but exam is about Windows Vista, so 4th edition is enough?
    Maybe “Advanced Windows Debugging”, but only one chapter about vista.
    I don’t have a lot of experience with vista and I want to prepare a plan for learning. When your books will be released?
