    :cry:

    I just finished reading e Mspres book today and I started to do the qstns from Measure up.. I found most of the qstns are quite weird and e answers cannot be found in the book at all...
    I failed and I am feeling depressed now...

    I want to know how is the difficulty level of these measure up qstns compared to the REAL exam?
    Why so many things are INCLUDED in the exam objectives but NOT in the book??
    Is it easier than the real one? then I thk I am going to fail it anyway...

    I found that aswell. If you notice towards the end of the book there are some online resources to use. Go and have a look at them for the info your missing, as the book doesnt cover it all.:)

    I did the 271 last week, and there were only 2 questions that I really had no clue about.

    Make sure you know WHY you got those measureup questions wrong. If necessary do a custom measureup exam with 146 or whatever questions in it, doesn't matter if you get 90% or 40%, make sure you know the reasoning behind the correct answers.
    Even if you got some questions right, they could have been guesses, or you might have been correct but for the wrong reasons.

    In my opinion (others feel free to correct me) you have to know share/file/folder access and network connectivity really well, they come up in a lot of questions. These are chapters 5 and 10 in the MS Press book. I reckon these are the core chapters/subjects.

    Good luck.

    Ya I thk e reason I got them wrong is because they are not taught in the book...even not mentioned

    I got 73% for the objective review. I had done the 146 qstns in one go... that one I thk bit easier than the practice test..:cry:
