    I am currently studying for exam 70-229 and eventually exams 70-316 & 70-320
    for MCAD. I am using the Microsoft self paced training kits. The kits
    contains Q's & A's but I am curious if anyone has used any additional study
    materials for the exams and been successful?

    I found a company named Measure Up that sells Q's & A's. Has anyone used
    this company's product? Any comments?

    I welcome recommendations on additional study materials for passing exams
    70-229, 70-316, and 70-320.

    Thanks, Mark.

    MeasureUp is very trustful source for study materials. Hadn't you heard
    about them?

    Thank You Blackmetal. I have not heard of them. I am hoping to compare
    several products before making a purchase. Do you, or anyone else, have
    experience with Measure Up? Or other study materials?

    I have used Measure Up most of the times and the question format is very
    similar to those in the real exams.

    Other good provider is SelfTest y CramSession, but i feel that CramSession
    has not the same dificulty level than Measureup

  6. Hi Mark

    I just sat my 70-305 exam on Monday and passed. I used the Microsoft self
    paced training kit & also a book by Que publications - called exam cram. The
    self paced training kits are good because some of the practice questions are
    the actual exam questions. The Que book also gives you a bit better
    explanation of things. I would recommend that book as well as the training

    Hope this helps.

    Rob, let me point out to you that having the 'Actual Exam Questions' is NOT
    good. If you have the actual exam questions, then you have what is called a
    '[email protected]'. [email protected] are considered illegal and use of them can be cause for
    termination of your certifications and ultimately your IT Career.

    Please take a few minutes to read more about '[email protected]' and why they are

    You think you know IT?!?!

  8. CertGuard,

    I didn't say i had all the actual exam questions, the microsoft press books
    written by microsoft gives you practice tests on the CD and all i said was
    that some of those questions i had done on that featured in the exam. I don't
    see how i have done anything illegal there. It was a microsoft book & a
    microsoft exam. I worked hard for my exam, studying every night for about 6

    In your response to the OP, you stated "The self paced training kits are
    good because some of the practice questions are the actual exam questions.",
    this statement *implies* that braindumps are present in your studies. I
    could tell by the rest of your post, however, that they weren't. ;-)

    I wasn't accusing you of doing anything illegal, I apologize if it sounded
    that way. The point I was trying to get to you was that you could not have
    had 'actual exam questions' unless you used braindumps. Your choice of study
    materials was a good choice. I commend you for not using braindumps and wish
    you the best on your future exams.

    If you have any questions about braindumps or exam security, please visit
    our forums.

    In my experience, the books by Que have always been awesome for test
    preparation. Their practice tests give you a good feel of the *type*
    of questions on the actual exam, are evenly spread out to cover most
    of the important topics, and do a good job in allowing you to identify
    your weak areas. This is the purpose of a good Practice test.
