  • Question

  • Hi, Being new to MS Certifications, I'm curious if the books / materials in the training kits
    are all that you need to pass the tests. (Of course with good study habits, ect).
    Are the books / Kit thorough? Or are other materials needed or recommended??  (other than a test server).
        Thanks!

  • Hello,

    In most cases the books are enough.  However you will want hands on experience as well. The books work very well to compliment this experience. Also keep in mind the books do not replace hands on experience, and it will be very hard to pass the exams without any experience. Which brings me to another point. Certifications are meant to showcase your experience and knowledge, they are not a replacement for them.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Hope this helps.
