I was planning for a quite a while to update my BizTalk certification, finally, I did it!
Today I passed the BizTalk 2010 Exam – 70-595 (TS: Developing Business Process and Integration Solutions by Using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010) which was released on 30 March 2011.
Candidates for this exam typically work as a BizTalk developer in an organization that has a need to integrate multiple disparate systems, applications, and data as well as the need to automate business processes by using BizTalk Server.
Candidates should have a solid understanding of fundamental BizTalk concepts around the core messaging engine and building business processes using orchestrations. Candidates will have some exposure to larger-scale multi-server solutions and deployment/management familiarity. This core knowledge is required for BizTalk 2006 R2, 2009, and 2010. In addition, core knowledge of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is also required.
Candidates should also have at least two years’ experience developing, deploying, testing, troubleshooting, and debugging BizTalk Server 2006 and later solutions across multiple projects and have experience using the Microsoft .NET Framework, XML, Microsoft Visual Studio, Microsoft SQL Server, Web services, and WCF while developing BizTalk integration solutions

Secondly… you’ve got me interested myself now, although I only have limited hands-on experience (1 roll out, just completed, but it was fairly large).
How did you prepare for the exam? I’ve seen the rough list of what’s included on the MS site, and was planning on cross-referencing to MSDN, but I wondered if you had any tips or found any good study material.
Thanks in advance!
You have a great post from Steef-Jan Wiggers: BizTalk Server 2010 Exam : How to prepare?
And I agree with the comments that he put in his post:
“It is more hands-on experienced type of exam. So if you have a number of intensive hands-on experiences under the belt with every aspect of BizTalk you will be fine.”
My preparation was based on my knowledge acquired from my work experience, books, MSDN and hand-on labs.

Do it need a experience of atleast 2 years?
You don’t necessary need 2 years of experience, of course the more experience you have, the easier it is for you to accomplish the certification, but you can be a rookie and try to take the exam, which I don’t advise the exam is complex and involves several issues.
As it is, and well, described on exam page:
“Candidates should have a solid understanding of fundamental BizTalk concepts around the core messaging engine and building business processes using orchestrations. Candidates will have some exposure to larger-scale multi-server solutions and deployment/management familiarity. This core knowledge is required for BizTalk 2006 R2, 2009, and 2010. In addition, core knowledge of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is also required.”
