  • I am not aware of any free training. 

    BTW, how will you be able to get certified if you have no cash as the cost of the exam is around 2-3 times the cost of buying the 70-640 book http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/book.aspx?id=11754&locale=en-us

  • If you don't have any (or very little) hands on experience (by hands on I mean working with the technology covered in the exam every day, not just playing around while studying) then it’s unlikely that you will have the knowledge and experience to pass this exam.

    Given that you have a Bachelor Degree in Information Technology and Administrative Management, I find it difficult to understand why you’re having difficulties finding a job.  Perhaps you are trying to get a job at too high a level instead of a junior position.

    If you’re really serious about wanting to pass this certification, you will need to try and save the money to purchase the training kit.  The only other way to study is to use TechNet Library (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/library/default.aspx) to research the skills measured in the exam (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?id=70-640#tab2)

  • I have been looking for an IT job without any luck. I have a bachelor degree in Information technology and administrative management. However, I've no field experience. If i can get an entry level position I can be able to do Microsoft certificates.
