    I am nearly ready to sit my fisrt microsoft exam, I understand there are various types of question which are interactive unlike the A+ and N+ exams. I was just interested to know if there are more multiple choice questions than interactive or vice versa? The practice questions i have are all multiple choice i dont want to struggle on the interactive questions by not having ant practice examples.

    I cant remember having any sims in my MCDST the questions were all mulitple choice, just better worded than the compTIA ones but a bit longer.

    I can't remember getting any sims either. I don't think they do them for the basic client exams.
    As GBL says, they are higher quality than the CompTIA exams and a bit more verbose to boot. A bit closer to real life in that respect as there is some information that isn't required to resolve the issue.
    The MSPress books give you a good indication of the level required ( the real thing is a lot closer to the review questions than it is to the practice exam questions in terms of difficulty imo).

    It depends on the exams questions that are drawn for your exam. As every exam is either totally or slightly different from the last.
