    Two options:
    Every helpdesk that I've see where pretty helpless that would never survive
    1 year's experience in real networking. I don't see that as helping.

    I don't think there are a lot of orgs out there that are willing to accept a
    green rookie with no experience to run their infrastructure. Maybe a college
    if the student is studying IT but even then they'd get no real work, just
    grunt work.

    Sorry Ben, I don't memorize the questions but the next time I see one, I'll
    e-mail you.

    Back to my original question, why are MS tests designed this way. I'm
    guessing everyone here but Ben understands what I mean. My MS server
    experience is greater then my Cisco routing experience. Mostly because I
    change permissions and create accounts more often then I need to change
    firewall filtering rules or alter how routing updates are sent out on the

    Cisco tests are also multiple choice as well. Why is it that I can pass the
    Cisco test (which a lot more straight forward and clear BTW) easily and not
    the MS exams?!? So my original question, why does MS do this? What is the
    point? I doubt it's an accident.

    Please do, examples really help.
    Ok - I am a veteran of 34 MCP exams, a couple Cisco and Novell exams,
    and many other one offs, like CISSP. I have also created exams here at
    Microsoft and at CompTIA (I was the original Chair of Security+).

    I can assure you that there is no great conspiracy to make questions
    tricky - in fact just the opposite. I know that items are sometimes
    awkwardly worded (if you have ever taken a beta exam you certainly have
    seen this) and sometimes the scenarios are a bit contrived - but the
    items are rigorously examined for fairness, but qualitatively and
