It's taking mulitple tries for even the sharpest candidates.
I took the exam 3 times before passing. 600, 650, 688 and then
passed. Prometric offers a graph on your score sheet showing roughly
how well you did on each of the six objectives. I scored 100% more tha
once on each objective but not all on the same test. This alone prove
that the test is not fair.
How can I pass the DNS objective at 100% twice and then "fail" dns th
If you are getting 600, you are close and I beleive that it's just
matter of drawing up the right combination of questions. It stinks tha
you will have to end up paying around $500 to pass this exam (hopefull
less) but that's the reality.
Think of it this way... There are allot of certification tests tha

not a phony, I'm not accusing you of being one!)
Study a little bit more each time and you will pass. I forced myself t

wanted to barf just trying to make it work - finally did (it's a rea

There are over 270,000 MCSE 2000's. There are less than 25,000 MCS
2003's. It's worth the extra effort and a few hundred bucks.
The new tests are meant to really mess up the people who memoriz
answers AND the people who've done their homework. the old tests had
300 question databases while the new ones have over 1000 questions an
they add new ones every week. It actually takes less time now to lear
the material rather than memorize the whole thing.
The questions are shorter (Thank God!) but are screwy and again th
scoring is messed up. It ain't perfect but better than the horrid 200
