A,B,C amd so on just refers to the minor revision of the material during time, it is something internal for trainers and training centers which should not bother you usually what changes between a version and another is minor stuff like corrections, lab(s) but nothing vital for the course/exam itself.

 

Course codes, in this case 6421, are sometiems the same for both the classroom trainig and the elearning equivalent.

 

Last but not least these codes are just bound to the official courses not the exams themselves this means that when looking for an exam you will find the code of the associated course. The codes you have mentioned are visibile and well available on MS website what I usually is just google for the course code like http://en.lmgtfy.com/?q=6421A+

 

Hope this answers your questions.

 

Cheers Lethe.

Err... exactly which part of my answer was not clear? Have you at least tried to click on the link in my answer? It is the first result you get form a search.

 

If you are trying to locate the material associated with the course codes you asked for, well then give it up it is copyrighted material and you get a copy of it from attending official class training for which I cannot really help as you should contact and locate a training partner where you live, again on Microsoft website you can find a list of these centers worldwide.

 

If you need help with something specific of further information you should try to elaborate your answer a bit as I'm not sure I fully understand what your problem is.

Tried to click a link?

Dude,i opened the link!

You told that the codes i am asking about are on Microsoft site,i already told you they are not on Microsoft site,you can yourself check!Sounds you haven't checked for the exam codes i asked??

And what was meant by this statement:""If you are trying to locate the material associated with the course codes you asked for, well then give it up it is copyrighted material""

Means the study material i received is not good for Studying?If not,please tell me which materials should i Try?

Let's try again.

 

The codes you speak of are there on the MS website, on the link I've sent you and as a matter of fact I could locate them without much problem.

 

As I've already stated, the A, B etc letters appended to the 6421 code are just course REVISIONS which usually take place when a Service pack comes out, some typos need to be fixed and so on as I've already written don't worry too much about the course revision but about the content in it.

 

If you received the material from an official course that's good use it to study but be aware you will need to do some homework like documenting yourself on technet or forums to get deeper information that could be needed to pass the exam or go deep in some arguments that in the moc, for time constraints, are not covered with the needed detail.

 

That should answer your question, if not please be detailed about what you cannot understand and we will try to help at the best we can.

 

Cheers Lethe.

 

**EDIT** Just FYI the actual revision level of 6421 is B as you stated but you will not have any problem with version A as well.

Sahil as I've said 6421A is totally FINE to study, the B version mentioned on the site is ONLY related to material revision level, nothing else.

 

As per the additional material you can find mentions of additional reading on the MOC itself or just hang out to Technet and you will find more than you need to read.

 

Last time I taught that course was long ago, I'm a full time Linux Engineer and have little to do with MS nowadays, so can't really point you to something more specific anyhow I would suggest to read what Mip has already pointed out in terms of syllabus/exam objectives and use that as a guideline to follow up the student course material with the extra one.

 

Lethe.

#1 Study! You also need to pay more attention to the people who offer assistance. Don't argue with them or you will be ignored.

 

#2 You are confused between course numbers and test numbers. Please review the Microsoft training website.

 

 

More precision is important.

  1. What certifications are you seeking?
  2. What tests are required by those certs?
  3. What courses are recommended to prepare for those tests?

 

It is not OUR responsibility to do your basic research. But we can help you once you know where you are and where you want to be.
