IF YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN EXAM 535, YOU WILL NOT EARN A CERTIFICATION BY TAKING THIS EXAM. THIS EXAM IS AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY AND IS SCHEDULED FOR RETIREMENT ON MARCH 31, 2019.

The transition exam is intended for people who have already demonstrated skills in the content domain by passing the existing exam(s) that the new role-based certification exams will be replacing. They cover the delta between the current certification and what we expect people who earn the new certification to be able to do. We don’t want to retest people on the same content where they have already demonstrated competence by passing the existing exam.

Transition exams cover net new content, content that wasn’t covered in enough depth, and content on aspects of the technology that have likely changed since someone took the exam. As a result, the transition exam is not shorter than a typical exam but more focused on the key tasks and skills that were not assessed in the existing exam or certification that is being replaced.
