    70-178 (71-178 ) Microsoft Project 2010, Managing Projects exam (beta)

    Well decided to give this beta exam, the 70-178, a go. I've been using Project 2007 and 2010, but really only the basic's of the program.

    Anyway, the main study resource that I've been using this book: Microsoft® Project 2010 Step by Step (available printed and as a ebook).

    While I've found this book to be very useful, the time frame that I'm cramming this book in isn't. 512 pages within a week, while that doesn't really sound alot, added to the normal working week and trying to fit everything else in - things don't stay in my head... If I had 3-4 weeks, I would feel more comfortable, especially when it came to the more advanced chapters that the books deals with.

    Other resources that other's may find useful include:
    Project 2010 Quick Start Training
    Getting started with Project 2010
    Microsoft Project 2010, Managing Projects (Exam Objectives)
    Download Microsoft Project Professional 2010 Trial
    Project 2010 TechCenter Refresh

    I have the exam this afternoon at 13.00hrs (yes on a Sunday).

    Good luck Ken ! :D

    Got mine booked for Weds afternoon - latest appt I could get. Hectic end of term last week so I've really only got 3 days to look at this in and it's been a while since I've touched Project 2007.

    Realistically I'll be lucky to even come close but you never know ! :p

    Thanks guys

    Know what you mean... Same here.

    The latest available to take this exam was either today or the 24th in our area, and didn't want to be studying up to Christmas.

    If I pass, great :D However if I fail, at least I'll know where I'm weak and I did pick up some good tips for using Project 2010 for work 8)

    Anyway, sat the exam and I have to say that it was one of the hardest exams that I've taken. I'm not saying that the exam ia/was difficult, but considering my limited exposure to Project 2010 compared to building/managing servers - well you guy's get my drift... I can say that I knew about 25% of the answers from what I've remembered from the book and from experience, however the more advanced features, I drew a blank.

    While I would love to pass this exam, I'd be lucky if I get a score in the 500's or above.

    Anything is possible 8) Our local testing centre is practically open Monday to Sunday.

    Hello I got the exam recently

    I studied with what is new in Project2010 and I think that was a good start for preparing this exam.
    Some questions were very easy since I know the answer :)
    But some were too confusing
    I prepared a short review on exam 70-178 Microsoft Project 2010, Managing Projects certification

    One major problem for me was I did not work with master-subprojects
