New Microsoft BizTalk 2010 certification exam

TS: Developing Business Process and Integration Solutions by Using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010

Microsoft has released the newest BizTalk 2010 certification exam, which will qualify you as a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS): Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010. Unfortunately, at this point it appears there is absolutely no training material for it; looking at the Preparation Materials tab at the link above says "Microsoft Learning recommends that you have hands-on experience with the product and that you use the following training resources." ... and then every training resource below it says "There is no training currently available.". But then again, that's still what the 2006 exam page says.

Hi, I have just completed the certification tests. I got exactly the point needed to pass. Which is a relieve because I have only been using BizTalk for about 3-4 months. I recommend to take a serious dive-in on SOAP exceptions for the test material and also WCF connectivity with BizTalk application

Hi,

I am planning to go for the certification. I have professional experience in BizTalk 2006 R2 but have not complete any biztalk exams. For BizTalk 2010 exam, how is the format of the exam? Multiple-choice, open-ended questions theory exam? or its practical lab-like exam?
