Transcender vs. Real Exam

How does the difficulty of the Transcender tests compare to the 294 test. On all other tests that I've used Transcender, they seemed to be harder than the real thing. However, 293 seemed to be harder than the Transcenders. What was your experience with 294?

I'm going to take 294 & 297 both next Saturday. icon_pale.gif

    I'm with you on that one! The actual 293 exam I found was much harder. Not looked at the 294 Transcender q's yet...

    294 was probably the biggest shocker for me in terms of difficulty I was expecting and actual difficultly. The material seemed pretty straight-forward, but the test really caught me off guard. I'm going to go with harder than Transcender on this one.

    Good luck!

    I agree, there's alot of little things that were on the real exam that were only mentioned in passing on the transcender exams/books for this test. If you are scoring well on the transcender exams and used another resource (books) I'd say you should be able to pass. You might not ace it but as long as you get the concepts down you should be fine.


    I personally havent taken 297 yet, taking both on the same day seemed like too much excitement for me =). I'm hoping to tackle it next week. Good luck to you!

    Could you give examples of some of the little things that caught you off guard? I'm taking 294 tomorrow and I'm a little concerned about what I might be overlooking. The material does seem pretty straight forward, but I keep seeing posts about how this test is deceptively difficult.

    There was some tricky group policy stuff. Sorry, I think that's all the more specific I can be ;)

    That's cool, I'm not looking for the actual question or anything like that. :)

    I was just curious if there were some random things on the test that I wouldn't have gone over during the course of normal studying.
