70-297 Tomorrow

Tips? I've heard there are 4 testlets and each run approx 25 mins. Better to read through the case and then do the questions or read through the questions first? Whatcha think? Anything else I should know?

    I'd go through the questions first because that'll help you get some idea of what information is going to be relevant. I'm not sure about the specifics. I did 298, and I had four or five testlets. The number of questions and amount of time varied between testlet though.

    Good luck!

    I'll second dynamik on this one. I did the 298 as well and it was definitely better to go through the questions and then the case study. Don't forget to look at the answers! Some of the questions could be answered without even looking at the case study just based off the ridiculous selection of answers they presented. The amount of time varied on the testlets for me some giving lots of times and others little. I always finished with several minutes to spare though.

    There's 6 testlets on the 297. I had anywhere from 5 to 11 questions per testlet. Good luck!

    Passed with an 863. The worst part about the test was all the reading. The questions were mostly easy, some seemed tricky. But ultimately, this is like a timed open book test. So not bad.

    Awesome, congratulations!

    So does that make you an MCSE, or do you still have an elective or other exam left?

    I still have an elective to go. I'm going to go with 70-401 which is the SCCM 2007 exam. I decided on this one for a few reason. 1st I have already taken the Microsoft 5 day class for this product (thanks boss) and 2nd I've been using it for about 8 months now. I figure this is a skill I can sell in the job market if I ever leave and being certified in it can only backup the fact that I do know what I'm doing.

    Congrats on the pass. I've been going through the Self Test practice tests and am convinced that the exam's name should be changed to "70-297: Upgrading Windows NT Topologies to Windows Server 2003 Active Directory." There are things that were on the exam and on these practice tests that are so old I've never even heard of them until I saw them on the exam, namely RISC processors.
