I had the opportunity to take this exam last week and since I got a thumbs-up :- ) I will let SOME tips here for everyone who is likewise thinking to apply for this new TFS exam.

Again, as in TFS 2010 exam – 70-512, you may be comfortable to go to this exam if you are already familiar with deploying Team Foundation Server using different topologies (single server, multi servers, using also load balancing, https), administering TFS server (TFS admin console), including backup/restore and also managing/working with the main component as version control, work item tracking, build automation, lab management, groups and permissions management of TFS instance level, Team Project Collection level and Team Project level, etc.
