    That doesn't matter.

    Think of it as mini-MCSE. It's a difficult test. Be sure you know your
    Exchange and wizards. It sounds like this will be your first test, so I
    would recommend to start with something simpler.

    it was a long test

    i took it last thursday, im a dumbass because i didnt study, but
    wanted to go in to know better what i was up against. i got mi
    600's with 700 being a passing score. i have very very littl
    technical knowledge as i am more on the sales side of things.

    i definatly agree with the post about knowing the wizards, etc. lot
    of questions like that

    several questions pertained to dns and dhcp as well

  5. HI Aman,

    I took the test a few months ago and honestly it was so easy that I
    complained to Microsoft that they were making meaningless the letters MCP.
    However if I am not mistaken there were 50 questions and 170 minutes.
    Without studying and with a fever I finished in 65 minutes and scored an 897.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes!

  9. I posted a complaint about the change in this Exam, it was remove3d from
    the newsgroup.


    Why
    Is microsoft unwilling to have complaints aired???

    The complaint was:
    How can you change a EXAM, without first
    1/ Suppling courseware
    2/ Changing the course (which is sold to us at a cost)
    3/ Informing GOLD partners that the EXAM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SBS.
    4/ Stopping Partners from needing this Exam for SBS valididation.

    This is a valid complaint

  10. Hi Jim.

    I had not seen your initial complaint, but let me answer it here. Microsoft
    changed the exam because there were too many complaints that the original was
    too easy. I don't remember the exact number but the pass rate was in the
    stratosphere.

    Having said that they did not change the subject material. The courseware
    is the same and the material being tested is the same. None of that has been
    changed.

    It is not that 70-282 has nothing to do with SBS, that is not true. It is
    just not excusively on SBS and it never was. It is titled Planning,
    Deploying, and Managing a Network Solution for the Small and Medium-Sized
    Business. Is SBS a big part of that? Yes. Is it the only aspect of it? Not
    at all.

    As for stopping partners from needing this exam for SBS validation that is
    firstly to my knowledge not true. The requirements for joining the Small
    Business Specialist Community (SBSC) have not changed. It is also known as
    an equalizer for smaller companies who would not qualify for GOLD Partner
    status. It is the one domain where Registered Partners and God Certified
    Partners are treated equally.

    Good luck to you!

  11. Hi

    I must dis agree with you completely.

    1/ We as Gold Partners are guide to take this exam for SBS. (We are one of
    the largest in UK)
    2/ The current prep tests/ booksand the course DO NOT COVER anything to do
    with the exam I took.
    3/ If SBS is a big part of it, WHY so little questions on SBS.

    I am renewing my MSCE. I think I will just take the normal exams,Exchange etc.
    This Exam and course has wasted one month of my time. And my money on
    course/books/preps.

    It was like taking an Exam in German, only to get French question, BECAUSE
    THEY ARE ALL LANGS.

    If you are taking SBS EXam, you need to think in SBS. YOU ADD USERS IN A
    DIFFERENT WAY.
    If I answered Users and computers it would be wrong for this test. The mix
    has been done wrong.

    I think that we will be dropping SBS from out products. (As it my Decisions).
    Maybe this was Microsofts IDEA not to sell SBS

  12. Hi

    I have been checking up.
    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-282.asp
    States that the course and exam are in line.

    There is nothing in the stated course about SQl and Excahnged migrations.
    yet in the exam there were questions, Lookin the newsgroup lots are
    complaining about this.

    The Exam has moved away from the stated objectives..

    IE Course and Exam should be on same subject.

    I have just wasted time, I could have been taking the exchange or active
    directory exams. There stated objective are clear.

    Microsoft wrote the course, maybe they should keep them together. Otherwise
    people will want there money back???

  13. Hi Jim,

    I am sorry that you feel that way, but I am not entirely sure how you would
    have me respond to your points in two posts.

    If you feel that you have wasted your time by studying material that will be
    pertinent to your career if not an exam then it is too bad but I will be
    honest, I have spoken with a lot of people who have written the exam both
    before and after the changes and most of them are satisfied with the changes.

    Again I will repeat that Gold Certified Partners are not supposed to have
    any advantage whatsoever with the SBSC program. Frankly when I was told
    about the program I was upset because I was not to receive any advantages,
    and when it was explained to me that the big advantages were for small
    businesses rather than Gold Partners I was satisfied. Obviously you are not.

    I have to ask though... do you work with Small Business Server, or were you
    relying solely on studying? As with every Microsoft exam they tell you ahead
    of time that you should have real experience before writing the exam. I have
    been working with it for quite some time and was therefore comfortable in the
    exam without the course and studying. However you are right, they do expect
    the SBS answers, so adding users should not be done through ADUC.

    Both SQL Server and Exchange Migrations are a part of SBS, but it will often
    be the case that they put answers in that do not apply as wrong answers. If
    you overthink the answers often you will get caught.

    In closing I am sorry that you are considering dropping the SBS line because
    you are upset, and would welcome the opportunity to help you off-line to
    resolve your concerns. I know that Microsoft has made extreme progress in
    the past two years to make the product what it is and I honestly believe it
    is the right solution for small businesses. If you are unhappy please e-mail
    me at mitch at mitchgarvis dot com and hopefully we resolve your concerns and
    possibly change your mind about carrying the product line.

    Best regards,

    Mitch Garvis

  14. Exam 70-282: Designing, Deploying, and Managing a Network Solution for a
    Small- and Medium-Sized Business

    Not even in the title is SBS mentioned, as I've stated before this exam is
    applying knowledge to designing the right solution for the right candidate
    [business]. Its not nor has it ever really been an "SBS" exam. Even the
    competency add for Partners is SBC [Small Business Community] which may have
    some focus to SBS but doesn't mean its SBS alone. As far as the questions
    you mentioned about other Microsoft Products, they were not first of all
    that difficult nor were they secondly out of the knowledge set fro someone
    consulting networking and infrastructure solutions for small and or
    mid-sized businesses.

    As for your comments about taking an Exchange or an Active Directory exam
    instead...even if this was a totally SBS exam what technologies do you think
    are included with it? AD and Exchange would be two of those technologies;
    I'm sorry you've had a rough time of it, but your complaint seems to have no
    foundation.

    I am booked in to take this exam in a couple of weeks time.

    I have the course 2395A book having taken the course in November.
    I also have The Microsoft SBS2003 Administrators companion.
    And Harry Brelsfords primer book

    Can you tell me wherabouts it mentions Exchange migration and SQL migration
    in this material?
    There is also no reference to SQL2005 in the course material.

    I have been using Measureup practice tests and also Self Test Software and I
    was getting pass results but now it seems I may be sitting an entirely
    different test to what I have prepared for.

    I have to agree with Jim. If Microsoft are going to re-vamp the test that's
    OK but surely they should revamp the course material first and certainly
    inform the audience that is is changed.

    Interesting, can we expect in the near future Mac or Linux questions in
    this exam? As the title does not make this impossible, and we are
    talking about right solutions for the right candidates.
    I consider the new exam an undocumented change of policy certainly in
    regard of http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-282.asp Probably
    it mainly clarifies the Microsoft way of working, we better like it go
    to look elsewhere.

  17. Mitch,

    If can prolly explain the concern over this change in the exam. Would it be
    possible for me to contact you about my concerns and the rather large
    majority of concerns of the employees I work with centered around this exam?
    It just Might actually help out a bit.

  18. Mitch,

    If can prolly explain the concern over this change in the exam. Would it be
    possible for me to contact you about my concerns and the rather large
    majority of concerns of the employees I work with centered around this exam?
    It just Might actually help out a bit.

  19. Hi

    I think my objection was.

    1/ The course.
    2/ The mock exam (From MS site)
    3/ The guidlines.

    DO NOT ASK FOR SQL or EXCHANGE migration info.

    I have no problem with a exam when the correct subject is examined.

    But to examine on subjects NOT included on the above is wrong.

    Yes the 2395A course has modules on windows 2003 migration.

    NOT ON SQL or EXCHANGE

    Yet the course is still stated by MS as the course for this Exam.

    Change the EXAM, change the GUIDELINES and the COURSEWARE

    I took my B Sc Pure Maths there was no History questions, funny that.
