    I've just completed the Security+ exam and I'm moving onto 70-290.

    Is there a general consensus that MS Exams are quite a bit harder than Comptia?:hhhmmm

    If you know your stuff, no exam is hard. But overall the MS exams are considered to be harder than Comptia.

    i have never taken a comptia exam but i can speak from the ms side of things. No study guide will ever prepare you for a ms exam or any exam for that matter. With MS exams you need plenty of hands on experience and time in a lab to make sure you know how to do the things you need to know in pratice and not just out of the book.

    The MS exams are harder IMO. The questions are much longer and there are also sims to deal with.

    That doesnt take anything away from the comptia certs though, very worthwhile and the A+ and Network+ are great certs to start you off :biggrin
