    I have achieved the following certifications: A+, Network +, and MCDST
    (Microsoft Desktop Support Technician). However, I failed the last exam
    (70-270) called "Installing, Configuring, & Administering Windows XP
    Professional". Has anyone passed this particular exam? What are some of the
    techniques you used to pass it? What resources did you use and was it
    effective? I solely used "Measure Up", (associated with New Horizons Learning
    Center) scored a 90% but using this site proved ineffective in terms of
    preparation. Currently, I'm using "Integrated Learning Manager" as a remedial
    tool to help supplement the areas missed on the exam.

    I failed for 70-270 too today.
    The only other cert I have is 70-290 (Windows 2003 Server) so when
    learning for this 270 exam I was thinking that even when I didn't learn
    much I would make it. I was wrong. My score was 632, and yours?
    I can't believe how difficult this XP exam was! Al kind of questions
    about VPN, EFS, WINS and stuff. Also there are 58 questions to do and
    all the questions have a very long introduction, it will make your
    brain tired very quick. Why don't they just ask directly?? Everytime it
    goes like "You are an Aministrator of a Windows 2003 domain with 3
    Windows 2000 member servers, 20 Windows 2000 Professional clients and
    50 Windows XP Professional clients and.." Pff.. just ask pls!
    I used the Transcenders, I tried three differtent Transcender exams and
    everytime I passed with a good score. Unfortunately I failed today with
    632. You need 700 to pass, does anybody know how many questions I
    answered wrong with this score? My idea now is that i just had bad
    luck.. :(

    Hi Bill and WJZ,

    I understand your frustration. It is hard to go into an exam exuding
    confidence and then fail, especially at $125 per sitting. I have never sat
    for 70-270 because I passed 70-210 (Windows 2000 Professional) but this
    advice will go for any exam you take.

    I have been using Microsoft Press Readiness Review Suites to prepare for my
    exams since 2003, and I cannot begin to tell you how helpful they have been.
    Why? I always fail. They are powered by Measure UP and they are designed to
    be really tough. But every time I get a question wrong I re-read the
    question, read the explanations and try to understand it, and the next time I
    write the practice exam I get that question right... and three more wrong. I
    do not think I have ever passed one on the first go, and even if I am only
    scoring 65% I am confident that I will pass the real exam.

    When I was in the service I remember learning that as a leader it was our
    duty to make our soldiers sweat and bleed during training, so that in the
    field they would be prepared. It is the same with exams: I would rather my
    exam prep be REALLY hard so I can pass the exam, instead of REALLY easy and I
    still fail.

    The Readiness Review Suites come with all of the Microsoft Press Self-Paced
    Training books, and are worth their weight in gold.

    Best of luck!

    Hi Montreal,

    Thanks for your nice tip. I have the MS Press books of 290 and 270 here
    so I will surely try out your tip which is making sense to me (the 'in
    the service' story).
    I didn't take a look at it before because I thaught the Transcenders
    were one of the hardest tests available. Thanks again ;)

    Hello everyone,
    Just to put in my 2 cents & $125.00 worth. I took and pass for my
    first Microsoft exam on May 30th the 70-270. I will admit, I did think
    it was tough. But I did pass. Here is what I used MOSTLY for the exam.
    MCSA 70-270 For Dummies. Don't laugh. It was easy to pick out the
    information that would PROBABLY be on the test. The sample questons
    were very realistic. I also read though the McGraw Hill book on the
    70-270. And I found and took as many practise exams as I could find. I
    would take one big (50 or more qustions) each day of the final week.
    And of course, I use XP all the time. The trick is to learn what
    MICROSOFT wants you to learn. The Dummies Books worked for the 70-270
    and the A+ before that. Give them a try.

    Hey flcpl,

    Firstly congratulations on passing your first Microsoft exam! I just posted
    to my blog (and to www.certguard.com) an article about the first exams I
    passed. There is no way to truly describe the elation, is there?

    Secondly thanks for kicking in your two cents. I think that the more people
    who post about the material that worked for them as well as what did not work
    for them, the better prepared the community can be!

    Good luck on your certification path and keep it up!

    Wow!

    I have also completed my A+ and MCDST certification. Im also attending New
    Horizions for my MCSA.

    The classroom teaching are great but I still have to do some studying on my
    own. The workbooks arent the greatest so I did go out and purchased some
    Microsoft Press Books for MCSE and 70-270. I recommend them as well. I
    bought mine thru Amazon. Just make sure you buy the latest edition.

    Sorry you did not pass the test. There are many reasons but Im guessing you
    might have gotten too confident. Then again the 70-270 seems like an over
    view after taking the MCDST.

    Thanks for sharing. You will pass it for sure the next time!

    Best of luck

    Hey there ibang,

    Actually 70-270 is not an overview, it is quite different than what you will
    see on the MCDST exams. Make sure you take the time to go through the
    Readiness Review Suite that came with the MS-Press book, and good luck!

    Hey JIPS THAT IS GREAT!!!! Congratulations! Isn't it a great feeling when
    the screen pops up that says 'Congratulations...'?

    Bask in the glory for a few days, but don't sit on your laurels for too long
    like I did... go the distance! And if I could ask a favour that you just
    post your story as a reply to my blog post, it would go a long way to
    encouraging others to take the plunge, just like you had the courage to do!

    Good luck,

    JIPS you rock. I know what you mean about not being sure if you passed or
    not because I have walked out of some of the harder exams with the same
    uncertainty. Your comment on my blog was heartwarming, especially since
    yours is the second success story I have read this evening about someone who
    took the plunge for their first exam after reading my blog!

    Keep up the good work!

    I took and passed 70-270 this morning. As i work with XP every day and have
    also passed the MCDST I didnt think it was too hard. I have to say that 270
    seems to test your knowledge of using different components of XP and applying
    that knowledge in different "real world" settings, alot more then 271 and 272
    do.

    Anyway I am now only one step away from my MCSA 2003 having passed
    290 and 270 now I need to get on 291. Start the course monday, work paying
    so its all good!

    Anyone still to pass this or any exam good luck!

    Hey Dean,

    That's great news! You will probably find 70-291 to be a bit more
    challenging than 70-290, but I have faith that you will go through the
    course, study hard, and pass it. Good luck!

    I was reading your post and wondering why you thought that the three exams
    would make you an MCSA, but then I saw your sig... You know of course that
    the combination A+ and Network+ is a suitable elective alternative to the
    Microsoft exams. I had never spoken with someone who had gone that way, and
    it is good to know that they are out there!

    Good luck and let us know how you do!
