Passed MCTS 70-620!!

Discussion in 'MCTS' started by Dustin Harper, Feb 27, 2008.

  1. I passed the MCTS for 70-620 today! YAY!

    Some advice: yes, it's easy. But, a lot of the questions were kind of really
    specific. You had to know what the exact wording is on a certain item in a
    menu. But, all the exam objectives from the Microsoft site were exactly what
    I was tested on. Nothing more and nothing less. Most of what I needed on the
    exam was learned by hands on. I did a Sybex book, but it was for the 70-623
    exam. So, I'm ready for that one, and it did cover a lot of the objectives
    for the 620. But, nothing prepared me more than the hands on.

    Now, I'm studying and preparing for the 70-623. :)

    I just took a test, in preparation for the 70-620 exam and scored 75% (42
    out of 56 questions) and it tells me I failed!
    I thought I needed to obtain 70% to pass the test, not 80% (as mentioned in
    the practice exam)

    Can anyone shed some light on the fact?
    Kind Regards

    I passed 70-620 too. I think this exam was way easier than 70-210 Windows
    2000 Pro.

  5. It was almost TOO easy. Of course, I don't want to get cocky and think I can
    go into the next exam thinking they are all like this, so I'm going on it
    was the test that was easy, not that I was very prepared! :)
