Not a good tip...what is easy ? yes if you have real experience supporting XP to the point you would know all the subtilities from all the features of XP and compares it to the other MCP exams, yes you can call it "easy".
I wish we could see the real figures on how many people fail this exam. I remember last time I was doing my 290, all the other guys in the room were all doing 270, as my exam was longer, each time one of the guys had finish his exam the girl from the test center was asking how it went, the 4 guys had failed their exam. Probably a bad coincidence, but anyway it proved to me that people are failing MCPs too.
