Technical Difficulties with Exam 071-297

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Michele Adams, Aug 13, 2003.

  1. I've heard a few cases of beta exam 071-297 crashing. I was scheduled to
    take it Saturday and got an email advising me to reschedule as the exam
    wasn't ready. I rescheduled for today, showed up, and made it to question 3
    in about 20 minutes (including a lot of reading). It then said I was out of
    time and ended the entire exam. Subsequent efforts to complete it (after my
    proctor called Prometric support, rebooted, and downloaded some patches)
    yielded worse.

    I realize this is a beta exam, but I always thought the content was beta,
    not the test engine. Nonetheless I would like to take this exam but have no
    time before it's scheduled ending. From the proctor's discussion with
    Prometric it seems this is happening a lot.

    From the chugging of the hard drive I believe this must really pound the
    machine. Any similar experiences? Is Microsoft considering extending the
    beta period (or perhaps have a beta 2 *LOL*)?

  2. What time did you have your exam? I had an exam scheduled for 10:00am EST
    today and it was delayed 45 mins because "the system was down".
