    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd say I passed the 290 today with 871. I really thought I was going to fail this exam first time because of the addition of sims and general worrying.

    Off shopping now with the better half so a number of hobgoblins may "accidentally" tumble into the trolly as well.

    Well done matey, it's certainly not an easy exam.

    For those who don't realise, Hobgoblins are beers. Well I'm pretty sure they are anyway. :)

    Well done Dales!!

    I'm due to sit mine on 20th May and I'm bricking it!

    No matter how much i can recite, and how much i remember and think i know, the highest i can get in the measure up practice tests is 68%!!

    I'm hoping that some how in the real test enviroment and with the addition of sims that the questions either ARE easier to interpret or at least feel easier!!! :rolleyes:

    thanks all,

    without breaking any NDA's i was quite surprised to how specific it was to the objectives where I found the measure up tests seemed to ask alot of random question about things not directly related to the exam.

    hey ence, I saw your post and am sorry you didnt pass, have you asked if they can help you out at all whilst in the exam. Dont want to sound condescending and I dont know how bad your dyslexia is, but i know a couple friends that get help during test/exams (at lease other exams not tech ones im afraid). Im sure MS must have some sort of policy on that sort of thing.
