For my study material i am using the microsoft press book. my exam is scheduled for thursday this week, so i'm starting to do practice test i have both measure-up (came with the microsoft press exam book) and i got the selftestsoftware with my exam voucher from on the selftestsoftware exams i'm scoring an 85% pretty consistently and on the measureup i'm only scoring a 65% !?!?!?!

which of the practice tests are more accurate??? i know that they are both the only ones approved by microsoft, but how can there be such a huge margin in the scores between the two?

    I used selftest for MCDST and Measureup as well. I had the same experience with that exam.
    The Measureup seemed much more difficult to pass.

    I have used measureup several times for different exams--including 70-290. I took it twice, once because my voucher was almost expired and then on an almost-expired Microsoft free retake, and failed both times. I could just barely pass the Measureup on both occasions.

    So, If I were you, I would reschedule the exam if at all possible, and spend more study time.

    Best of luck!

    which was more comparable to what you would see on the exam? because i'm doing fairly well with the self test software. took another test today and scored a 95. took the measureup and was a 70 so i think if i continue to cram i should be ok.... just curious which questions are closer to what is on the exam.

    I have used Measureup for several other exams, and I would say that they are a very good representation.
