    I've just started studying for MCSE.
    Could anyone, suggest ways to effectively study for my
    first exam?
    Is it possible to study just a book and pass this exam?
    your replies and advises are much appreciated~!
    Thank you~

    Probably not but it is possible if you back it up with a good practice test
    simulator i.e., MeasureUp, Self Test Software, or Transcender and some
    experience with the product(s).

    I think you can if you have been working with the products for some time
    I would suggest you try looking at www.cbtnuggets.com. I have used their video
    and they were a great help

    You might also consider investing in around 3 inexpensive
    computers and some networking hardware to develop
    a lab to practice the various tasks that are in the books.
    If you really can't afford the 3 PC's try getting some virtual
    computer software and using that. I've never used any but
    I am sure some of the other folks here can offer suggestions
    about which software is pretty good for that.

    Depends on how much experience you have. If you've been working with the
    product for a while, and have a lab set up, or a couple of test boxes on
    the company net, sure.

    There's nothing like failing the exam.

    The Microsoft site lists the topics. Pick a few topics
    for study, and study them in whatever books you can get.
    Do all the labs at least once.

    Don't try to exhaust all possible preparation resources.
    Just take the exam. Failing the exam will show you what
    you need to work on.

    Time is money. I've heard about people spending WAY too
    much time and worry (and money) to positively ensure they
    won't fail the first try.

    You have to ask yourself a question. Do you want to brag
    you passed on your first try, or do you want to just get
    it over with and get on with your life?

    If you don't want to pay for two exams, ask a benefactor
    to subsidize you 50%. My Mom comes to mind.

    Please, no jokes about my Mom. <uses anti-MCNGP spray>

    'swhy I like the beta exams. If I want to fail an exam, I will do that
    one. there is a balance here. if study and have done everything to prep
    for the exam (without spending your life savings) you can in most cases
    pass on the first try. If I were to fail, that's life and I do the exam a
    second time. (but I haven't failed in 5 years + so I must be due)
    like a spray would work...and besides it would just be easier to make
    jokes about your mother's son (and no not your brother)...maybe too easy
    <grin>
