Can any one tell me how many questions to expect on this exam? I know there
is a number of sims, and I've been studying the press book and another my
school provides. Which include about 400 questions in the practice exams. If
anybody can inform me it would be greatly appreciated.
I took my 70-290 exam on Jan 11, and there were 40 questions. Somewhere on
the web site (ProMetric probably) they said it was a 4-hour exam, but it
actually was 3 hours. I finished in 1 hour and 35 minutes. I don't have any
idea how that compares to other people's time.
One hint: BE FAMILIAR with the material! There were some questions that I
didn't have the faintest idea what the answers were. The book didn't really
cover them, although they were related to the material and if I had played
around with it more in the lab I would have known. (I have a full lab, with
about 12 computers, including 5 Server 03's, a bunch of Cisco stuff, PIX
firewall, AdTran box, etc in an equipment rack). I did pass on my first
attempt, but not by very much. I didn't use a practice exam. I prefer to have
a comfortable margin. I'm going to try to be better prepared for future exams.
The book we use at my school is "Managing a Microsoft Windows Server 2003
Environment, Enhanced", ISBN 978-0-619-21752-5. It got mixed reviews on
Amazon.com, but I thought it was a pretty good book. After all, I passed the
Good luck to you!
