    Hi,

    I've recently started my MCSA, self study from the MS textbooks. A few times it has mentioned editing group policy objects and was just wondering (perhaps niavely) whether i'm going to be expected to remember the paths in Group Policy Editor to get to these settings. I ask because I'm only on the 2nd chapter and already its come up about 4 or 5 times so i'm wondering whether its worth me trying to remember these or not

    cheers

    Perhaps. Unfortunately, the best we're able to say is that if it's in Microsoft's exam objectives, it could be on the exam. Anyone who has taken the exam is bound by a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that states that we cannot reveal what's on the exam. Otherwise, we risk being decertified for life.

    hmm , the exam objectives are pretty vague. Oh well, you can't break the NDA - I'm going to assume that its in the book so it could be on the exam

    thanks

    If it's in the book then its probably best to try and learn it in case, it's similar with A+ and all the different processor specs, I think you need to know them so I'm going to try my best and hope for the best should I need them.

    If you work with GP enough you will remember where the settings are that you need. Remember there are user and computer settings. :wink:

    I would just generally practice group policy and go just through settings a few times, and use your practice exams, usually they give a good indicator of what will desperately need to be remembered.

    Things I would get good at are user environment settings, stuff like start menu and desktop, internet explorer settings and so on.

    These are what I usually come accross when creating restricted profiles so you may learn something useful.

    Also bear in mind practice applying group policy not just through the AD tool but also the GPMC as this will save you time in the real world (and may or may not crop up potentially in a microsft exam)
