    I did not see any on my exam.

    More than that though, if your goal is to become an Administrator, then learning how these scripts work is very good information. I use them all the time for users where I work.

    Here is a great resource to know what they are and how to build them.

    Just to be clear, you don't need to be a pro or an expert programmer to know what is going on, just a little researching.

    Good luck!

    thanks for the info

    I actually used the site to build scripts to creat a few hundred object in my final project for school.


    the practice quesion on my trancender jsut through me for a loop when it wanted things set up line by line


    I'm alot better at reading and decifering code than I am at wrting the code

    I have some VB and SQL exp but it;s been a while and even took a course in C

    scripting is definately my weak point (not dsadd,dsmod) so it is sometihng I plan to learn as I work my way up.

    I'm not a programmer but I have a lot of experience using VBA in MS Access which has a good IDE. Writing those vb scripts in notepad is a lot harder because its not color coded and the interpreter is not as strict(more chances for bugs). Another thing that I have a hard time on is remembering all the methods and properties for the different objects. I find the online MSDN is a valuable tool for such things. Oh also check out w3schools.com.

    I did have that kind of question in the 70-292 test, so get a bit of a feel for it. I did think that was an unfair question, especially when I used the MS training kit for it and scripts were mentioned as being usable for automation, but not even examples of a common script was shown.

    Still, it seemed possible to figure out using a bit of common sense.
