I don't mean to be discouraging, but I would recommend holding off on retaking the exam until you get some more study time in - it's a relatively wide margin from your score to the pass mark to be spending just a few days reviewing. Use your exam score report as your guide on your weak spots and go back to hit the books on those topics, and then when you're comfortable with those topics go back for round 2 on the exam. Again, I'm not trying to be discouraging or mean, just trying to be realistic and give you some honest feedback to try to help you succeed on your next shot.

Can someone fill me in with the scoring methods for this test? Total score, score needed, is it a simple % score or do they have their own method of scoring like CompTIA uses.

70-270 uses the Microsoft scoring method, and nobody really knows what that is. Each quesiton is weighted differently. Passing score is 700 or above.
If you are lacking hands on experience, my recommendation is to get a lab going. I've been using XP since 2001 and when I took the test last month I scored just under the 800 mark. Dont underestimate the exam, it is difficult.
