  • Hi Alexander,

    I am more of a developer but I think I can help.

    The MCTS exams like the 70-662 focus on the "what should you do" types of scenarios.  For example, how would you implement a shared mailbox.  The Pro exams like the 70-663 focus more on the "what would you recommend" types of questions.  For example, given a set of business requirements, which client access strategy would you recommend.

    Here are the URL's for the Microsoft Learning pages about these exams. Take a look at the Skills Measured tab for specific lists of topics that may be covered in the exams. Also, take a look at the Preparation Materials tab for links to resources that will help you prepare.

    Good luck!

  • Hi Mike

    Thanks for the input.

    I was more looking for the specific format of the actual exam (i.e. the 70-662 was just answer 55 multiple choice questions) where as I've heard the pro exams have case studies etc within them if that makes sense?

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately I cannot give you any specifics about what you might see on specific exams without violating NDA agreements.  I can tell you that Microsoft Learning uses a lot of different ways to ask questions.  I just replied to another thread with a couple of links that may lead you to the information that you are looking at.  Take a look at the links in this post: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/CertGeneral/thread/249b2463-de97-4b01-9233-f9bcab9b5b03

    Also, here is a link to the FAQ page for exams:  http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/exam-prep.aspx#tab2  This may also answer your questions.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi Alexander,

    The 70-663 is a pro or design exam, and design exams generally include case studies. Good luck.
