As of this time, I don’t seem to see the exam showing up in prometric’s exam list when I tried to register but I think we should expect to see it very soon.

Read the full article from Gerry OBrien’s blog from the following link : SQL Server 2008 Beta Exam: 71-452: Designing a Business Intelligence Infrastructure Using Microsoft SQL Server 2008

There is also some post for a PRO/MCITP level exam for DBA but registration will not be open until August 15 :See following link from TechNet Beta Exam announcements blog that and I think we can expect it from Gerry’s blog soon. 71-450: PRO: Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Designing, Optimizing, and Maintaining a Database Administrative Solution

I don’t think I have time to review for this and my BI skills are only TS level or not even but trust me you learn a lot from just taking the exam. Of course you learn more from reviewing and study for it Smile

Besides, I don’t have to repeat that since it’s a beta exam it’s for FREE (just use the promo code)
