So which one is easier?

20-271 or 20-272 in general..i KNOW thier diff topics but generally, if you have years of computer[xp] expierence and already A+, Net+, and I-Net+ Certified...

because..for instance...the 20-272 is a 2day class..rather than 20-271[3 day class], which makes you think the 20-272 is easier.....but what if it is actually a 2 day class but the topic matter is really in depth,like a super-buried setting in outlook or changing the margin size in word, something that as a tech, SURE we know, but how often do we use this or know this....hell i know MS Active Directory better off the top of my head than some buried-never-used setting or function that a test may ask....

you see so.....the 20-272 may be "easier"...but the questions are specific..while the 20-271 may be "harder", but it covers more general or normally used items, control panel, computer management,user account,device know.....

so when I say "easier" i mean easy by the means of normally used items in the OS, main program settings...opposed to werido NEVER-USED settings or wizards that we wouldnt have known if it werent for the study book........

does this make sense......? GIMMIE some feedback!

    sharpescalade please stop using bold, it's starting to be annoying.

    It would depend on your skills to determine which exam is easier. Most people take 20-271 first.

    In the end, it's not the piece of certified paper that gets you the job, but what you can do practically.

    I thought 272 was a bit easier, but it doesn't matter. You should be prepared for both anyways, as they are very similar.
