    Hi Bose,

    I am going to give you the best advice I can and you are probably not going
    to like it very much, but a lot of people seem to trust me when it comes to
    certification exam advice.

    1. You are very unlikely to pass any certification exam based on theoretical
    knowledge. You have to know your material cold, and the only way to do that
    is with practical experience. You are lucky in that you are taking an exam
    based on Windows XP... people who take exams on servers usually do not have
    servers handy to work with. Install Windows XP, play around in it, and then:

    2. Buy a good book to help you study. I favour the Microsoft Press
    Self-Paced Training books. They come with the Readiness Review Suite
    software which will let you take as many practice exams as you like on your
    own computer. It is very realistic and if you can pass that you can pass the
    exam.

    As it happens I took that very exam (70-271) a few weeks ago. Granted I
    probably have a lot more hands-on experience helping people with Windows XP
    and I did not go through the whole book, I did go through the Readiness
    Review extensively and consider it a factor not in my passing but in the high
    marks I got. The book has plenty of exercises and labs that will give you
    the knowledge you need to not only pass but then succeed in implementing the
    knowledge you gain from the studying.

    I want you to remember that the point of any certification exam is to
    demonstrate your knowledge of the subject matter. There will always be a
    difference in someone who studies to know the material over someone who
    studies to pass a test. That is one of the reasons that people hiring do not
    only look at certifications but look at accomplishments as well. If you know
    Windows XP cold then you probably do not need to study. If you just study
    for the exam then you will probably pass it, but will you be a true
    professional?

    Think about that. Go out and buy the book, study, but really try to learn
    the software before just going out to take the exam. Your clients in the
    future will thank me for it.

    Great advice, Montreal MCT. Please tell me where I can locate the Self-Paced
    book you are referring to. You may remember me. I'm the "ignorant rookie".

    Thank you.

    You can pick them up at any book store. Look for the MS Press section in
    the computer aisle.

    I'll give you one better:

    http://www.amazon.com/MCDST-Self-Pa...ef=sr_1_1/104-3852836-2005524?ie=UTF8&s=books

    There's the amazon link for the book you will want for 70-271. The review
    suite included is quite helpful. I used this book + practical experience
    with Windows XP SP2 (since SP2 came out), and passed the test with over a
    900.

    Hope the link helps.
