    Good luck with your exam :)

    As for the exam itself, each MS exam is different, there is no fixed number of questions (there is a range though). However the pass mark is the same for all exams, this is 700. I don't even believe that each question is weighted the same (eg some questions have higher marks assigned to it).

    basically there will be anything from about 30-60 questions - this figure changes and you need 700 to pass now that doesnt mean 70% because some questions are graded and some carry more marks. How MS marks is something we dont know but we know you need 700 to pass.

    70-272 PASSED ! 754 - Phew get in !

    I had 11 questions about remote desktop connection - not even in the 272 Microsoft Press book cheeky gits.

    I once thought the M/Soft Press Books were the dogs but this one in particular no way covers everything you need to know it seems.

    Anyway who cares lol ! Onto the A+ and 70-270 now

    happy days - thanks for all your best wishes and advice

    50 questions in total

    Privacy was covered as was outlook express and outlook. barely anything on word, excel. mostly on Remote Desktop and plenty about windows firewall. Little bit about share permissions !

    after the first 11 questions I wanted out but as it went on the questions got easier and shorter.

    one question was 5 paragraphs long and the answers were all 4 lines long - ridiculous !!

    do NOT rely on the M/Soft Press Book !
