Sorry is this has already been asked but here goes anyway...

So how many testlets can I expect to see on the 70-298 exam and how many questios per testlet ?

Are these testlets limited by time ? How much time do I have for the overall exam ?

Cheers
Colin

    I'd like to know the answer to this one as well - but I'm pretty sure it's all random chief.

    I haven't taken this one yet, but all the design exams are pretty much the same, each testlet is timed individually.

    The Exchange exam had 6 I think, the security exam will probably be similar.

    Well I took this exam last week and scored a 900. I had a total of 5 testlets and all were timed individually. I had more than enough time, some were timed at 15 mins each and others that were 30 mins.

    Over all had more than enough time.

    Now I need to determine my elective ....hmmmmmmm No Ideas yet....

    Security+ for the elective since you did well in the Security Design exam.

    I'd agree, Security+ would be a good choice.

    Yes I am thinking along the lines of Security +, just wondering where I can find some good reading material ? Anyone have any book recommendations for this exam ?

    Cheers

    I took a Microsoft Course for Security+...MOC 2810. I also used Measure Up and the practice questions from this site.

    If you're going for MCSE: Security then you need two electives on top of 70-298. I just passed 70-298 today and I already have my Security+. I plan to take 70-299 as the other security elective.

    The Sybex book for Security+ is excellent. I used only that book to study and I got an 885/900. It's an awesome book.

    I agree, the sybex (3rd edition) book is an excellent resource for security+
