    Hello Guys..

    I want to pass the Windows Server 2003 exam. Please suggest me some tips about the same.

    • What is the passing score?
    • How many total questions are there?
    • WHat topics are very important for the exam?
    I am very much confused about Universal groups, local Groups and Global groups.. Please explain me in simle terms.. And also why do we need 3 different group types?

    Thank you.
    Regards,
    Stolen

    The answers to your question are in the MS press training kit book 70-290 so get this book and go through at a steady pace.

    It would all make sense if you also carry the practice labs in the book, use Virtual PC 2007 which is a free download and create several clients for the labs etc. To be honest when you've been through the above then purchase either transcender practice test or preplogic. Best wishes and lets know how you get on.

    I passed this Monday

    passing score 700 - 70%
    Questions - I had 45 but it changes I believe
    Topics - All - I had questions that covered every topic and no topic was covered inm more depth than any other

    I used MS-Press book and Exam Cram 2 with transcenders and measure up tests

    The passing score is indeed 700... but that doesn't necessarily mean 70%. Top score might or might not be 1000, and some questions are likely weighted heavier than others.

    indeed Boson - I stand corrected - I kind of new about the % not sure why I quoted that - however what I did not realise is that 1000 is not always the top score - how does that work ?

    anyone ever scored 1000 ?

    Dunno how that works... and the only ones who do know at Microsoft aren't saying.

    Some exams indeed have a passing score of 1000 - I've seen recent score reports that show a 1000 score with the section categories maxed out. But there are reports of people scoring over 1000, though I've never seen proof of it.

    Additionally.. there's no proof that the lowest score is a 0... again making it impossible to know what percent of questions you need to answer correctly to get a 700.

    Out of 50-something exams, I've only scored 1000 once... on a 30-question Microsoft TCP/IP exam (70-059).

    i just passed mine today. i had 45 questions of which 4 were simulated but it varies. i honestly thought i failed as i royally screwed up the simulated questions. however it seems like M$ likes me cause i got 912 8)

    EDIT: i found the general questions weren't too difficult, if you cain the books you should be ok...sims however your best bet is to do the labs in the manual

    All you do is download it from Microsofts web site, then you just need to get a hold of some operating systems to put on it.

    This should help mate, if you ever have to work in a multi-domain environment then you will see the use of the different group types.
