Exam format for 70-410

Hi guys :D

I would like to know what format the above exam is in please?

What I mean is, is it like the CompTIA exam's where you have a lot of multiple choice questions which you can flag/review etc or is there a more practical element to the questions?

The CompTIA exams had 100 questions each apart from the Security+ exam which had around 66 I believe. How many does 70-410 have?

Thank you guys for your input icon_cool.gif

    Microsoft publishes a rather comprehensive listing of what to expect as far as question number, type, etc. I suggest looking there for the detailed and exact information.


    Microsoft MCSA tests range from 40-60 questions using varying test formats. It has been more multiple choice but Microsoft is working in some newer question types that test more of the practical knowledge.

    I just find it strange when you have up to 150 minutes for the test yet there are only 40-60 questions...

    I am saying this comparing to CompTIA exams of course which is 100 questions over 90 minutes...

    It's a lot harder than Comptia tests.

    Could you be a little more specific?

    I will be taking my first Microsoft Exam next week and I just want to be as prepared as possible...

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?
