Well, passed my first MCP exam today. 70-290 was although a lot harder then i \nthought although the time was more than enough for me. So a few tips:\n- You'll need to have real situations to relate to. I dont think just \nstudying will do the trick, maybe for a few Brainiacs...\n- The 2273 course is not covering the entire exam. You'll need to study the \nApendices hard!\n- If You're even just a bit unsure: Take Prep Exams like Measure Up. I think \nthats what helped me the most besides taking a course and practical \nexperience. Another side effect of the preps is learning how to read the \nquestions... Not having English as a native language makes this a problem \notherwise.\n- Use the review option on each question that You have slightest doubt in.\n- Take Your time to read and understand the questions. In review mode I \ndiscovered a couple of errors made because not paying attention to the first \nsentence...\n- Last one: Use the comment feature to let MS know about the "Hypothetic \nquestions"... Because there are some of those.... Come on: Who uses 56kbps to \nconnect to branch offices??? ;-)\n\nGood Luck!
