    Evenin all,

    Wondering if anyone knows the answer to this for me...I am studying for 70-271 and just want to make sure of a fact...when was the current exam released? Alternatively, are questions changed from time to time?

    Reason i ask is that obviously as xp changes, so should the exam. Will the questions refer to RIS or WDS? changes from SP2? 3?

    In truth most of it shouldnt bother me as i have supported xp for a long time now, but my knowledge of RIS / WDS is reasonably sketchy.

    I don't think they have changed since 2007. I just took 70-271 a month ago and 70-272 this Monday.

    I used the MS Press book for both - the 271 book is copyrighted for 2006. Maybe they haven't changed much at all.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about it having just taken both tests in the last month.

    Good Luck!:thumbleft

    any queries like these, always go to the source, this case, would be Microsoft and have a look at the objectives, any changes, it will be noted there.

    Unlike Comptia, MS do not do revisions of whole exams (eg A+ 2003, 2005, 2009, etc). From what I've seen, what they do is include new questions in the question pool for the exam. For example, I've seen questions for both SUS & WSUS on other MS exams (without breaking the NDA).
