  • Question

  • So earlier this year I took and password my MCTS (70-680).  I am getting ready to go take my MCITP (70-686).

    Something I noticed from the first test is I didn't do nearly as good as I felt.

    Something I wanted to possibly verify is when the questions are asked are you only supposed to work with what is in the question?  Meaning are you supposed to leave all assumptions you have?

    I think that is written correctly, if not I can elaborate a bit.

    Thanks

    Sean

  • Hi,

    I always leave all assumptions at the door. Sometimes the questions are poorly written which can lead to assumptions however I find after completing more than 25 MS professional exams that it is best to work with the material in the question.

  • Do not assume anything.  The questions will provide all the information you need to answer them.  If it's not in the question, it's not relevant to the answer.
