    Personally, I found 272 easiest.
    I found them both relatively easy though, so I'd judge it on how competent you are on the 272 requirements.

    Good luck!

    An exam is only easy if you know the answers!

    It depends how familiar you are with MS office. I'd say both exams were a similar level of difficultiy and not too challenging at all for somebody with necessary experience.

    I found 272 slightly harder but I dont think I prepared as well for it.

    I feel the same as GingerDave...272 was slightly tougher for me although I felt more prepared for it.

    A relative (or "fuzzy") question... Compared to one another, I found the 70-272 harder than the 70-271.
