    Hello.

    I would like to be MCSA certified and have bought the "MCSA Self-Paced
    Training Kit: Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Core Requirements, Second Edition"
    books - http://www.microsoft.com/MSPress/books/6274.asp

    A CD-ROM with a "Test-readiness tool that generates timed, 50-question
    practice exams with automated scoring" comes with the package, and I've taken
    several tests for my first exam. My average score are 48 correct answers out
    of 50 questions. But is this readiness tool worth anything? Do I need to take
    an expensive Transcender practice test to be sure that I'm ready to pass the
    real MCP exam?

    Please advise.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards,

    Michael Geertsen

    It couldn't hurt, although Self-Test software is better IMHO.

    I am working through the MCSA track myself. I found the MS Press books
    have been useful but the Transcender and Selftest software exams helped
    fill in gaps in my knowlodge. Be aware that Transcender and Selftest
    seem to be made by the same company and are very similar in terms or
    functionality and test questions (although Selftest is about half the
    price).

    Real world experience with using the OS is probably the most important
    part of preperation though.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I know that practical experience is the best, and I also make use of that as
    much as I can.

    I'll try to see if I can find a Transcender test where I'm working - I might
    be lucky :)
