Study materials for 70-290 ?

Discussion in 'MCSA' started by Pascal Duchemin, Jun 29, 2005.

  1. Hello,

    This is a subject that is not new in this newsgroup and I have been
    reading the posts related to these, however based on my "experience" I
    have a couple questions.

    I studied for the 70-290 using the MCSE Self-paced training kit from
    MsPress. I bought the book last october but only started study a month
    and a half ago.

    I was aware of the "new" test format that MS was going to apply
    beginning of April but still decided to take the test thinking that what
    I knew from the book and the practice tests that were on the CD provided
    with the book should be enough.

    I unfortuntaly failed with a 600 ( which it's pretty bad since I guess
    it represents a 60% ).

    Some of the questions in the real test could definitely not be answered
    by the MsPress book, it's as if the book I have was outdated for the
    test I took on some subjects.

    Then I downloaded ( not for free ) a practice exam from the measureup
    website on 70-290 and realized that the questions there were in that
    exam were more similar to the questions I had in the real test than the
    ones in the book I purchased.

    Davin Eastley in a month old post "70-290. Cannot Pass and need advice"
    suggested a book from QUE, MCSA 70-290 training guide.

    My questions are:
    - Should I just redo all my studies pretty much from scratch and get the
    QUE book ?
    - Fortunately I signed for the 2nd shot deal, after studying the
    practice exam I just downloaded from measure up could I just consider
    myself ready for the test and take it asap ?

    Thanks for your advices

  2. Hi
    last week MeasureUP upgraded the test for 70-290
    try to download new vesrion (upgrade should be free), it is more closer to
    real exam.

    In microsoft.public.cert.exam.mcsa, CBIC spewed across the ether:
    Swen appears to have gone to bigger and better things. I think he's doing
    browser hijackers these days. Aurora. BAstiges!

    It was a virus that sent itself out to addresses harvested from usenet. As
    CBIC said, it seems to have gone by the wayside, now all that seems to work
    off usenet addresses is scammers and spammers. Farging iceholes (continuing
    JaRs theme).
