Windows Phone 7 exam will be available starting July 14.
Peter Kuhn of the Silverlight Show has posted a series about how you can get ready for the exam.
You can use the series to bring you up to speed to take the exam once it is available, or can be used as a basis to plan your own, self-paced learning to prepare for the exam at a later point.
