    Hello Guys,

    Can I rely on the practice tests that are on the CD of the MS Press book?

    I cannot afford transcenders :(

    I think you can proberbly rely on them for about 80% of the time. I've found a couple of questions on my mcdst and 270 practice questions that were wrong. I think proberbly the main thing you need to take from the practice test is answering the questions in a MICROSOFT way. Sometimes they have 2 answer that are very close to being correct or are correct, when that happens you need to pick through the question to find things like "with the least administrative effort" or look for time constraints which may affect the completion of the task in the question.

    Hey Stolenblessing,

    I think you can probably rely on them for assistance with judging how well you know the material. If you are flying through the questions, I think you'll be fine. I wouldn't worry about Transcenders. It isn't always about the practice test, but more of what you have done to prepare for the exams. If you have hands on experience, and are able to comprehend the questions you see, you should do alright.

    I agree with dales too... it's not always about what makes sence in the real world, but rather what Microsoft suggests.

    Good luck!

    You can probably rely on them to test what the author sees important. In other words, try to use other publications (i.e. various tests; other books, etc…) to help absorb the material.

    I have the MS press books for MCDST although I am not studying at the moment so I havent tried the exams yet. But whilst studying my A+ I have infact found the exams on the Mike Myeres CD to be the best, as in terms of how well they are written and how the actual test engine/gui works.

    Sometimes paid for things are not as good as the free stuff, as long as they are legit ofcourse.
