Dumpit - what must I say if this is dump is valid in my region/ country? I think you must also think before you open your mouth! Keep those comments rolling and it's unfortunate if Microsoft has changed this exam in your area!

Why do people keep saying it's 100% valid and telling us it has 2 case studies with 8 new questions each. This means it is not 100%.
So please think before you post your comments.

As Jo from France points out, the only error/difference between this guide and the real exam is Question 19 on Exam C. The real cert exam only allows you to select one valid answer while this guide points to two items as valid. Correct answer is the Templates selection.

QUESTION 19
Your company has a private cloud that contains a System Center 2012 Service Manager Infrastructure. The help desk uses Service Manager to manage and track incidents. Service desk analysts report that they recieve many Windows 7-related incidents. You need to create a classification for the Windows 7-related incidents. What should you configure to create the classification? To answer, select the appropriate configuration in the answer area.

Answer: Select Templates

Right.

If you want to deploy the service to a Windows Server 2008 R2-based Hyper-V host (with or without Service Pack 1), you must also enable MAC address spoofing for NLB to work correctly. If you do not, service deployment will fail. However, you cannot use the Enable spoofing of MAC addresses check box in the virtual machine template or the associated hardware profile to configure this setting. Instead, you must use the VMM command shell to configure this setting after you create the template, or in the hardware profile that you use for the template.

The following question is wrong:

Your role of Systems Administrator at ABC.com includes the management of the company's private cloud. The private cloud is hosted on an internal System Center 2012 infrastructure. The network includes servers that run Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and are managed by servers running System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).

You are configuring a hardware profile in VMM. The hardware profile will be used to create virtual machines configured for Windows Network Load Balancing. In the Network Adapter Properties, you configure the network adapter to be connected to a logical network and to use a Static IP address from the Static IP Pool.

You now need to configure the MAC address options.
Which two of the following options should you configure? (Choose two).

Answers must be B & C and not D:

This exam has a lot of drag and drop answers but there are none in any of these brain dumps.

Is this content (without the drag and drop stuff) still enough to get a pass mark?

Or how many drag and drop questions are there? 10% or 20% of the questions etc?

In exam C, the question about adding SMS as an available source.. the answer should be Lists. You wouldn't be able to add SMS as a source in a template if it was not adding to the list first. amiright?
