    Since you've already purchased the Transcenders, I work with the links they give you into the documentation for each of the questions. Dig deeper on these topics and be sure you inderstand how they map back to the exam objectives.

    Remember, when you register for an exam, you can apply a free second chance code. THese can be obtained from any MCT. It really takes the pressure off when you know you can retake the exam again for free, treating the first attempt like a learning opportunity to find out where you still need to study up.

    Remember - for each exam question, eliminate the dumb answers (typically half of them) - then choose the better of the remaining few answers.

    You'll get this title - don't give up! Then you'll put on a happy face - good luck!


    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson

  • Transcenders are a great way to study for the Microsoft exams. My advice is to go through each and every question on the Transcender and find out how and why the right answer is the right answer and why the wrong answer is the wrong answer (Don't just look at the explanation from Transcender, look at the Microsoft books to find out the answer). Also, Transcender provides a set of flash cards on the major terminology and concepts used for the exam, which is a great way to make sure the information stick inside your brain.

    Last but not least, do all of the excercise and labs (even the extra practice ones) from the Microsoft books as this will give you a more hands on experience on the different aspects of the exam, which will in turn help you learn faster on the subject.

  • Well if you're really nervous about this you could try taking a last minute course http://www.trainit4less.com/Pages/productdetail.aspx?p=705. They also offer gift cards now http://www.trainit4less.com/Pages/Current-Offers.aspx, but in all fairness it would still add quite a bit to your costs. So I guess it depends on just how nervous you are :)
    Best of luck with your exam, fingers crossed!

  • Dear sir the rigth method to study.

    Take a strong PC

    Install Virtual PC

    By a microsoft Official Curiculum MOC of desired courses

    Take time and Train yourself  when your're ready for exam you cam take a Measureup, or testking or another practice test only to test your skill

    Or another right way is to take a official microsoft course online or onsite with certified microsoft instructor

    Best regard
