Passed 70-271, but was surprised.

Let me just say hello to all and thank you for such a great forum. I finaly got around to taking the 70-271 on May 31 and was surprised at the questions I had. Most questions where on VPN, TCP/IP and server administration, I had maybe five questions on file sharing. I used Measure Up as my training material and was scoring 900's on practice exams, scored 790 on the real exam icon_cry.gif. Did anyone else have the same experience as I did? This exam was nothing like the study material in Measure Up.

Thanks

    Welcome to technet forums and good job on your first MS exam.

    I would have to agree with you on type of questions I had when I took the test couple months ago. It was mostly VPN and TCP/IP. The funny part is that when I started the test I could not believe that I was getting questions on topics that I didn't really study as much as I should have.

    Is 70-272 next? What are other tests that you are planing on taking in the future.
    Going for:N+, MCSA/MCSE.

    Hi bogdan5,

    That was the same thing running through my head as I was taking the exam. I had to look in the upper corner a few times to make sure it was 70-271. I started to sweat half way through but I knew enough about VPN connections and configuration to wing it. I advise anyone taking this exam to study up on VPN... Hitting 271 in a month and on to MCSA.

    I had several on VPN's and remote administration, but I had about 15 on laptop type questions which really surpriesed me.

    That seems to be a common thread about the MeasureUps. I just passed the 70-290 and was scoring 90s with MeasureUp. However MeasureUp failed to convey some of the ultra detailed questions that I got on my exam. Luckily I was able to get through it based on the overall knowledge I have on Server 2003. I won't be buying MeasureUp anymore, it's too easy compared to the actual exam.
