    Hey all, I've booked my 70-290 exam for the 22nd to complete my MCSA.:biggrin

    I've been using Pass4Sure 70-290 and the TopCerts practice exams.

    I have trouble reading the long questions, has anyone got any tips as to how to simplify these questions to get a better understanding?

    I don't have to time to fail the 290 exam as I will be sitting my 291 3 weeks after.


    Thanks.

    aren't pass4sure & topcerts a braindump site - all their blurb reads that way to me

    Can pass exam just by using questions, guaranteed passes, no explanations of all answers ('cus they don't know them)

    The killer is when they they reserve all rights over THEIR products

    Ambushed, using these sorts of products you're proving nothing and devaluing the experience of others who've earned their certs. Looking at your age, the fact you're doing 290 and then 291 a few weeks later if you ever manage to get a job in the real world and having used these products (answers) you won't have a clue and will soon be found out.


    If they aren't then obvious apologies but I reckon they are

    What the hell are you talking about old man, I'm using these practice test engines at my training provider.

    I just wanted ideas as to how to read the questions easier because they are very similar to the real exam from what I have heard.

    How dare you put someone down like that.

    Another thing is that I am not self studying, I'm training at a training provider that I have payed ALOT of money for and I have worked HARD for what is coming.

    Well sorry m8 but I've just checked pass4sure on Certguard (www.certguard.com) and they are braindumps ! As I'm sure you're aware we don't condone them here !

    I suggest you point that out to your employer - there are plenty of legitimate training sites who offer genuine practice questions - Transcender/Boson etc.

    Ok, thanks for clearing that up for me.

    Could you tell me why they are not recommended?

    Cheap way of getting cert I guess?

    BTW, they also have transcender so I will just stick to that :)

    Suggest you read :


    http://www.certguard.com/braindumps.asp

    http://www.certguard.com/decertified.asp

    Look at it this way - I have 10 yrs IT experience; struggling to get a job and in financial jeopardy yet I'm putting the work in to study to pass the certs to confirm my experience.

    If you were in my shoes, how would you feel if you found out that someone got a job over you because they had used braindumps to pass their certs and get a job when they have limited knowledge and have just crammed to pass exam questions ?

    Not a pleasant thought is it ?

    Yeah damm, didn't know that honestly.

    Can my training provider get in trouble for this?

    Most definitely !

    Read the Certguard links I posted. If they are using braindumps they're in just as much trouble as any candidate if not more.

    To quote from Certguard :

    "People that get caught cheating get decertified; people that sell, resell, administer, or distribute braindumps get shutdown; and the proxy test-takers get banned from all test centers and their websites get shutdown"

    It's simple - put the work in and do it properly !

    I'd be interested to know what training provider is using them but I guess it could be on dodgey ground for ambushed to say so on a public forum (hearsay) so far as anyone else is concerned.

    I'd have been suprised if they were in the UK but having just seen your location I guess they're in NZ. I wonder whether the company uses them or are they just being handed out by the odd dodgey trainer without the Training Providers knowledge?

    Ambushed, I don't think you get the MCP credentials unless you pass a different exam apart from the 70-620.

    Could be wrong, but would advise you check your logo builder on the MS website, which shows what you can use.

    If I'm right you should be able to use it after you pass the 70-290 on the 22nd September 2008.

    Only way to find out is for Ambushed to use the logo builder on the MS site.
