Study and Exam Preparation Tips

Study and Exam Preparation Tips

Those of us who have been in the business for a while have lived through the old days when after taking an exam we thoroughly understood the term “paper certified.” These days it is far more difficult to pass a Microsoft exam without having a fair amount of experience with the product under your belt. The changes that Microsoft has made to the exams require you to know the material well, so when confronted with a problem or a simulated scenario, you can handle the challenge. With the newer exams, Microsoft has made it clear that as far as the MCSE or MCSA certifications are concerned, quality beats quantity.

This element of the book provides you with some general guidelines for preparing for any certification exam, including Exam 70-290, “Managing and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment.” It is organized into four sections. The first section addresses learning styles and how they affect preparation for the exam. The second section covers exam-preparation activities and general study tips. This is followed by an extended look at the Microsoft certification exams, including a number of specific tips that apply to the various Microsoft exam formats and question types. Finally, changes in Microsoft’s testing policies and how they might affect you are discussed.
