70-315 exam length and pass rate

Discussion in 'MCAD' started by SpeedyGonzalez, Nov 5, 2004.

  1. Hi,
    I will be taking the 70-315 exam in 2 weeks time. I've read around and I'm
    still uncertain about a couple of things to do with the exam format.

    1) How long is the exam? Am I right in thinking it is 1.5 hours. From
    looking through this newsgroup though, it looks like it might be 2 or even
    2.5 hours.

    2) How many questions are there? The practice exams I've been taking have 50
    questions. Is it true that this isn't always the case for the real thing.

    3) Is there a pass rate for the exam? Even an estimated pass rate would be
    extremely helpful to me. The Transcender exam pass rate is 85%. I am really
    curious to know if this is the same for the real thing.

    I took it last week and passed with 924.
    There were 43 questions to answer in 2 hrs. 700 is the passing mark.

    I also took it and got 886.. and I had plenty of time to spare. The
    hardest and longest questions in any of the prep books are the ones you
    will probably see. I suggest you focus on security and components, it
    will be a big help. ("Linking" vs. "embedding" resources in al.exe too...)
    Mine had also 43 questions and usually 700 is the pass/fail mark but it
    has been known to vary....

    PS.. The prep books alone wont be enough without some concepts too...

    -> 43 to 55 questions a believe
    -> time is 2h, but 2,5h if you're non-english speaking.
    -> passing score is 700, but don't be fooled,
    transcenders are much much easier. Exam is very heavy on
    ADo stuff and Microsoft isn't even scared of asking about
    pure SQL-queries. (although this is limited)

    Good luck.
