  • One exam a month.  It could be done however you'd be pushing it.  That said, and as previously advised, it's impossible to advise whether every person would pass every exam.

    One way to find out would be to purchase SelfTest, Transcender or MeasureUp testing software for these exams and see how well you go.  If people get around 60-70% the first time they sit the test exams, I'd say you'd have a good chance of passing all the exams by the deadline.  If you get lower than 60%, it's unlikely, but not impossible, to pass all the exams by the deadline.

  • This is a question that is impossible to answer as it all depends on the person and their previous practical experience with the technologies covered in these exams.

    I've heard of people passing after 2 weeks of study and others fail after 6 months of study.

  • Hi, we have been given a target of 15 Nov 2011 to clear all these exams.

    I am not sure this is possible.

     

    Assume the knowledge of the guys is at an average level.

    What can be a best estimate ?

  • There is no limitation on how long to study for an exam, do as much as possible.

    As Jeff said, it all depends on your skills and your ability to understand the product, I passed MCTS 70-515 with success after just one month of studying the Microsoft Training Kit which was useful, if you're intelligent enough, you might pass with little experience, but if you don't have a solid knowledge, you should take your time and do all the practice tests.
