Some of you have noticed that I have passed the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Development exam and therefor am a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist.  As a result, I have received requests for information about the exam.  I cannot tell you any more details about the exam than Microsoft publicly publishes about the exam.

Why can't I tell you anything more?  For two reasons; as a condition of taking he exam you will be required to sign an NDA, and well I can't tell you the other reason because that is covered by an NDA. 

I don't want tell you any more details either, if I were to make it easy for you, then the test would become worthless.

What I can tell you is that the purpose of the test is to determine whether you, the test taker, have real knowledge and understanding of developing a Windows CE 6.0 OS using Platform Builder.

I can also tell you that I have talked with several engineers who have taken and passed the exam.  The engineers who have worked with Windows CE for several years thought that the test was easy, and it should have been.  The engineers who had only worked with Windows CE for about a year found it to be more difficult, and it should have been.

Microsoft has provided guidance at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exams/70-571.mspx, including a  CE 6.0 Exam Preparation Kit Download

If you think that you have the experience to take and pass the exam, then do it, and I wish you luck.
