    Just as an FYI to all future examinees,

    There is a difference between the "real world" answer and the "best
    practices" answer that Microsoft wants you to know for all Microsoft exams.

    Microsoft has acknowledged these differences on their exams but in a bad
    way. In essence, many of the questions can be boiled down to twp possible
    answers, one being the "real world" answer and one being the "best
    practices" answer. The "real world" answer is the distractor!!!

    In order to pass the exam, you must subscribe to the Microsoft theory
    solely. For those of you who are relying on real world experience to pass
    the exam, this will help with overall knowledge, but can often trip you up
    during the exam.

    Make sure when you sit to test, you keep your brain in "Microsoft Mode" for
    the duration. Just a word to the wise, and best of luck!

    That's a very good bit of advice. For those of you who have to write an
    HDA (Help Desk Analyst) certification, the same logic also applies there.
