Was 5 testlets heavy on vpn, ipsec, ca's, ras. Really just look at the topic the question talks about and scan all the info on the left pane about the company till you find the sentance that talks about it.

Finally 1 test to go for MCSE! There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Strangely, i got an email from Microsoft saying congrats on on the MCSE. I didnt think it was right and called them and they found it was an error. Must have counted my a+, net+ somehow which do not count towards mcse.

Studying Comptia Sec+ for last test. Always like the Comptia tests better anyways.

    ITBarbarian,
    I am taking this exam on Tuesday morning. I have a few questions on the format. Is each testlet individually timed? Such as you have 20 minutes for this testlet?
    Or is it you have 2.5 hours for all 5 testlets.

    How long is the exam in total? Such as, most exams are 2.5 hours.

    I am grappling with the back and forth between the case study and the questions. I took one of the Transcender testlets and it took 40 minutes. Do I have this kind of time on a testlet?

    Each testlet is timed individually. 40 minutes for one is probably stretching it a bit too far.

    So how much time is allotted for each testlet?

    It depends on the number of questions. I think they range from like 15 minutes to 30 minutes per.
