    There is no minimum passing mark in this case, since mcp is not an
    exam, but a certification credential. In other words, you cannot "take"
    an mcp or "pass" an mcp, but you can "become" an MCP.

    You could however "take an MCP to bed", or "pass a lewd comment for an
    MCP"...

  3. Hi Kucky,

    The minimum passing grade for any MCP exam is 700. That being said, 700
    does not represent a percentage or a specific mark, so on a harder exam 700
    may be 65% and on an easier exam it may be 85%. It's complicated, and
    frankly the only people who REALLY knows are Jim and the team at Microsoft
    Learning.

    Good luck!

  4. i'm about to take the 70-291 exam. i was wondering how much is weighted for
    each simulation question with 700 mark being a pass. also assuming if i
    coulnd't do them and not answer the sim question can i still pass the exam.

  5. Hi Man,

    Contrary to popular belief, every question on any MCP exam is weighted
    equally, with the exception of questions that are put in as new questions and
    such, which are not counted for points.

  6. Umm....no. Every question is not weighted evenly.

  7. Hmmm... that is what they told us when I was in Redmond... maybe it is
    different for different exams. In any event that is what I was told, though
    I have been known to get bad information from time to time.

  8. ok i did the 070-291 and scored 658! there were 3 simulations i didn't do!
    there were 40 questions. how many do you think were incorrect answers and
    how much of the simulation contributed to it? there were 342 and surely 3
    simulation questions doesn't account for all that 342 marks.

    *boggle*

    Why in fusk would you spend the money to take the test, knowing that you
    were clueless about the sims? And having done so, not even attempt them?

    I tell ya, every time ya think ya've heard it all...

  11. if i attempted it but didn't know how to go about doing it then wouldn't i
    get penalised for it!

    there was one question about the sus. i went into sus but another part
    asked about configuring gpo in active directory on the automatic settings.
    how would i do that in active directory. where woud i look.

    i am assuming most tasks are one by going into administrative tools and in
    dns.

    I believe you get penalized just as much for a wrong answer as you do for no
    answer. That is, if you don't answer the question, you're wrong.
