  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I am planning to give 70 431 and 70 536.

    Just wanted to ask how many times one can attempt for these exams.

    Is there any limit for the number of attempts or say for how much duration we cannot give the exam after failing. :)

    Thanks

  • Hello PrachiK,

    There is not a limit for taking an exam.

    Once you have to wait two weeks if I do not remember false.

    But now there is not a time period between two attempts on the same exam code.

    But if you think you might fail, check for free second shot voucher code that you can use during exam registration.

    Check the thread http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en/CertGeneral/thread/fd30f974-8f04-402e-bb1e-d9d58bbab5a4 for second shot vouchers

  • As many times as it takes you to pass.  The key (obviously) is to study properly and use good materials.

  • You should stop trying as soon as you start tapping into your 401K..

    But seriously, there is a lot of material out there for test preparation. My preffered choice would be to gain at least one year hands on the MS way(by the book), and than study for the test.

    Worked for me with SCCM and 2008.
