    Thankyou to all that have submitted relative material in relation to
    preparing for the 70-272 exams.

    Although I have had some time to prepare for this test within an employed
    role of Helpdesk for my company, I still feel ill prepared.

    I have read and worked with all the microsoft press material for exams 70-
    271/ and 272.
    I have read the exam cram 2 book, bought and flicked throught the microsoft
    office specialist guide (office 2003 edition) books.

    With all this preparation, I feel after taking a number of practice exams
    from the Measure Up facilities, that alot of duplication is present between
    the 2 exams. Exam 271 (Which I passed 850) in hind-sight wasn't too bad, and
    was what I would expect from an exam on the XP Desktop environment. However
    I cannot recipriocate the feeling with the preparation I having to take for
    exam 272. Outlook Express was covered in 271 with its news groups and the
    like. It rears its ugly head again in preparation for 272 along with other
    XP OS materials.

    Not only this, I show a certain amount of distaste toward the wording of
    certain questions and the accuracy of the microsoft press books. With an
    abundance of typographical errors and some which could be see as long
    extenuations of preference, over that of real world, via solutions to
    preparation materials and situation deposed in the books. Alot of the
    questions are trivial preferential based antics which wouldn't be allowed in
    any real world network environment via domain "doom and gloom" group
    policy's.

    I would love microsoft exams to be based on the relative practices at hand,
    and just the explusion of blithering trival knowledge that any real helpdesk
    person should be able to find with the avaliable material afforded them now
    in Paperback and Online. Some these exam trial questions are $64,000
    questions that don't give you an oportunity to defend yourself with the
    avaliable materials that you, would or should have being in microsofts ideal
    world, If you don't know the answer.

    However, with the knowledge I have armed myself with here, the most
    practical I have seen so far is:
    Read, lots of practice tests and cover the C/E 2 review sheet prior to entry
    of the exam..
    Is there anything anyone can offer to help prepare and put and otherwise
    stressed mind to rest prior to monday.

    Thankyou
    Scott

    Passed the second exam this week (yahh for me!) found the second exam
    more real world questions. I didnt feel ready for my second exam I did
    many practice tests but only ever passed the proper exam.

    if my exam was anything to go by then it should be easy enough for
    anyone who has gone through the ms book and uses outlook.

    hope this helps and good luck

    i took the exam yesterday and for me it was easier then the 70-271. most of
    it was straight forward, i had like 3 or 4 questions that didn't seem to
    have the right answer listed. most of it seemed to be on oe, ie, windows
    firewall and anti virus. i used the ms press self training book by walter
    glenn and mcdst exams by timothy warner along with the measureup practice
    tests on the cd.
