    Hi All,

    Well decided to put technical certs to one side over the Christmas period and do some Office certs. I've already done the Outlook 2007 (in 2008 ) and Vista (in 2007) MCAS certs (now they've been converted to MOS), so decided to have a go at two of the four remaining. The two I decided to try today was: Word and Excel.

    Word 2007, got a pass of 867.
    Excel 2007, got a pass of 731.

    Personally, I found the Word exam harder than the Excel one - which is funny considering that I scored higher on the Word exam (I did run out of time on the Excel exam with 3 questions still left unanswered though).

    I did find this out about the Office Master Certification for 2007:

    See here.

    I'm not sure if MS will be releasing harder exams or will be creating easier exams & renaming the current ones to to "Expert" (to distinguish between the two) as one of the main criticism of the MCAS (MOS 2007) exams were that they were too hard.

    Roll on January when I'll be doing the other two, heck I may even attempt to go for the 2010 route also :)

    It's all relative, compared to the MCP's/MCTS/MCITP's yes they are. However for the average office user, in terms of difficulty, it could be as easy as the 70-271 or as hard as the 70-291.

    Well done Ken! 8)

    The list of skills being measured for the Word 2007 Expert exam is definitely a bit harder than the Standard Level. Same goes for Word 2010 Expert and Excel 2010 Expert

    I am only waiting for Outlook 2010 testing to be available in Aberdeen and I'll be a Master in both 2007 and 2010 :D I still only teach 2003, but I'm prepared for whichever version we move to 8)

    As Ken indicated, anyone thinking about them should do them before March when the requirements change, and you have to pass two Expert (Word and Excel) level exams and two Standard level (any 2 of PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access) exams.

    I am sure I read somewhere that you need 6 - 12 months of experience using the version you are testing in to be confident of passing the exams.

    Good luck!
