All of the software listed below is required for the course:

    Note: All tools run in Windows 7; however, some lab exercises require the Internet Explorer 10, which is available only in Windows 8 as of this writing. When this guide was written, the latest version of Internet Explorer 10 ran only in Windows 8 Release Preview; Windows 8 wasn’t yet available. The preview version of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 did not include updates and therefore lacked support for several elements, properties, and attributes covered in the textbook.

The course examination fees are not included in your course. Unfortunately, the venues do not allow tuition providers to pay for learners and request that a learner does so themselves.
