The 70-417 exam provides a fast-track to an MCSA Windows Server 2012 certification or an MCSE Windows Server 2012: Server Infrastructure certification. For the MCSA, only this exam is needed, and for the MCSE, instead of taking five exams, those who qualify from prior certifications only need to pass three: 70-417, 70-413, and 70-414.Inquiries & Bookings
