Thanks for the edit. Couldn't figure out what the problem was, as it looked fine when I checked the preview and when I had posted it. Then I realised that Firefox renders it differently to Chrome. Looks fine in Chrome, but in Firefox it doesn't. Odd. – ThatGraemeGuy Jan 5 '10 at 9:03

Both still exist, both still grant a MCTS, both count towards a MCITP & here in Oz, both are available via Promtric testing centers, but to quote Microsoft...

This Technology Specialist (TS) exam, Exam 83-640: TS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring, became available in November 2008. This exam maps to the same objectives as 70-640, but this version (where available) contains a Performance Based component in addition to the standard exam item types. This exam is available in English only.

My understanding is that a Performance based component is MS speak for a simulation - if you like them do this exam, hate them do the other. Since the 83 exam is in English only it is highly unlikely that there is any downside to taking the 60 exam.

IN Prometric when i select 70.640 then there is no option for english langauge but there are other languages. Looks like they have deprecated that. Looks like everyone must give 83.640 from now onwards – John Jan 5 '10 at 13:17
