  • Question


  • Hi,

    Can anyone give any advice on this exam? The problem is, I used both transcender and the MS test engine to revise for this exam and got pass marks but the exam was very different. I won't say how many questions were on what topics as this may not be allowed, but I was surprised.

    If I wanted a high end cert such as the Master, does a fail matter?

    When the questions change, is it the example/context or the actual knowledge being tested?

    Finally, which exam providers are legal and not legal? Eg UCertify, ExamsExpert, etc? I am looking at trying another vendor.

    I did not book the second shot voucher for my first attempt. Is it possible for me to still use this as I am retaking?

    Thanks

    Hi

    I will try and answer your questions

    1. Testing engines. Each provider has a different way of asking questions that they think will come up on the exam. That is the nature of this business. Now the sample testing engines usually come with a caveat(warning) that you should be scoring regularly on them at least 95%+. This is just to ensure that you dont think by passing a sample you will pass the exam. Can you clarify what you mean by MS Test engine?

    2. If you are talking about the MCM there is non for development technologies yet. It mainly deals with operational stuff even in the SQL and SharePoint ones. If you are thinking about a university masters, they dont really share credits between the systems.

    3. Usually when questions change they are asking within the context of the exam and more than likely will be just new questions.

    4. To check tor legal sample test providers try using http://www.certguard.com/Search.asp to find out if they are reputable or not

    5. You need to book second when you make the initial book so you cant use it to get a free one for the one you just failed. However you can book second shot when making the booking for this exam and that will allow you if you fail it, to retry


    Now some tips..

    Make sure to read the questions this is where most people fall down. They either assume its asking one thing or miss an important part of the question. Additionally revise topics such as AJAX (script manager), new controls to ASP.NET 3.5, security in web applications, how to use WCF in web applications and finally master pages.

  • Did you study from the MS prep kit?

    I'll be writing this exam in about month and a half and I was wondering which books did you use to prepare for this exam.
