70-431 - Official duration and no of question?

Discussion in 'MCTS' started by Pedestrian Ooi, May 30, 2007.

  1. Hi to all! I'm currently preparing the MCTS 70-431 SQL Server 2005 by using
    Microsoft self-paced training kit. I've search Microsoft website for official
    information regarding the duration for this exam and the number of question
    in the exam but I haven't got it, any one please?

    Hi Pedestrian,

    That unfortunately is one of the questions thatr we cannot answer... partly
    because it is NDA but mostly because it is a closely guarded secret.
    Microsoft Learning uses some pretty nifty math from what I understand to
    come up with that result, but it is not 70%... and that 700, which is the
    passing score for every Microsoft exam, is not the same on any exams... so
    700 could (hypothetically) be 85% on one exam, and 65% on another.

    Sorry I couldn't help!

  4. No, it is not, 700 is generally the minimum score you can earn on an exam with a
    passing grade. 700 is not, however, equal to 70% in all cases. In some cases 700
    MAY equal 70%, but certainly not in all cases.

    Regardless, does it really matter? All you really need to know is that you've
    passed the exam or you've failed it. You should not be using this score as a
    'goal' to attain, you should be trying to be the best IT professional that you
    can be.

    Yes, I definitely want to strive to be the best IT professional I can be, but
    I have never had to take a test where I didn't know either what the total
    possible score is or what percentage it takes to pass. Having this
    information would help me identify my weaknesses and strengths. I have a
    background in Lotus (IBM), did the full certifcation path through multiple
    versions, and am very surprised that Microsoft handles their certification
    scoring this way.

  6. How about the number of questions, it is fixed or not fixed?
    and the official Time limit: How many hours is the exam 70-431?
