    The pass mark is 700 points, but nobody knows for sure what the minimum or the maximum are... nor does anyone know whether questions are weighted, whether you get partial credit, whether questions are unscored, etc. You can't rely on a percentage score. Just study the concepts until you understand them all. :)

    Dunno how many questions there are. That number changes from month to month as Microsoft adds unscored "beta" questions to the pool.

    I recommend MSPress and Sybex books for Microsoft exams. My opinion for practice exam study tools would be highly suspect due to bias!
    Certifications: CISSP, MCSE+I, MCSE: Security, MCSE: Messaging, MCDST, MCDBA, MCTS, OCP, CCNP, CCDP, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, CNE, SCSA, Security+, Linux+, Server+, Network+, A+
