    hi dac086, congratulations! may I ask the type of examination as I will take mine this coming Feb 22. Is it more of multiple choice, situational and simulations? and what references you used to study? Sorry for all the questions. Thanks and all the best to you.
  • dac086dac086 Posts: 4Registered Users ■□□□□□□□□□
    It was more multiple choice questions. I think there was like 36 questions. They were situational but multiple choice.

    I used the study guide here: https://www.certiport.com/Portal/desktopdefault.aspx?page=common/pagelibrary/MTA_study_guides.html
    and Mircosoft Wiley book.

    I guess everyone's doing it now. I just got mine on Monday. Congrats everyone! The study guide dac086 posted and the Wiley book are both great; I also recommend the CBT Nuggets videos. You can just grab a free trial and disable auto-renewal if you don't plan on using the site subscription.

    Hey guys, after I finish with the MCSA for SQL I also plan on doing the MTA 98-365 to get a good grasp of active directory and basic administration tasks on the server, I plan on using CBT nuggets material for this course, do you think it will be enough?

    They mention powershell in the book. Do you have to know powershell commands?
  • dac086dac086 Posts: 4Registered Users ■□□□□□□□□□
    There are no powershell commands in the test.

    Ditto -- don't over think, this exam is cake if you just study the exam outline at microsofts website... pick up the certiport study guide too, free and you can google it. My networking experience is minimal, I studied for 3 hours, passed.

    Thanks Scott

    I have that, the wiley book, tom carpenters book, and got the learn2pass pdf. When I was looking at the pdf, they had a question about powershell, imagex. The objectives state "it may cover or more". I have the network + cert.

    I didn't have a single powershell command.. I feel you are probably more than okay..

    https://www.certiport.com/Portal/Common/DocumentLibrary/MTA_98-365_OD_external.pdf - study this, if you can safely make guesses to most of this, you are golden..

    Most of them, even if you don't know, you can guess...

    I passed the exam! Thanks Dac086 for the tips. I used Wiley Book(read from cover to cover), cbt nuggets, I also purchased measure up practice test, quizlet.com(free) to practice.

    Exam is multiple choice. Good luck those who will take..I will study for the next certification.

    Passed today with pass of 95. Had 49 Questions in 45 minutes. Had two sims, about three questions had three parts to it. Some of the questions were very hard to answer. (look at the word that is underlined and answer the question??) A class across the way from us has many students where english was not their first language and most failed it.

    Passed with a 71%. Studied for half a day yesterday, half a day today. Some of the questions were much harder than anticipated. Or I'm that rusty. Used: https://www.certiport.com/Portal/desktopdefault.aspx?page=common/pagelibrary/MTA_study_guides.html
    Also installed a trial version of Server 2008 to play with the night before.
  • gncsmithgncsmith Posts: 458Member ■■■□□□□□□□
    Congrats! That's all you used was the study guide and the Server 2008 trial? Maybe I'm over studying since I've already taken a couple of Microsoft exams (70-680).

    I'm taking my 98-365 tomorrow, I have been revising this past month. Ill let you know how it goes!
  • gncsmithgncsmith Posts: 458Member ■■■□□□□□□□
    So, based on the feedback in this thread, I went and took the 98-365 exam yesterday; I passed and was over-studying.

    Thanks all!

    I also took the 74-409 Hyper-V exam and failed (606 out of 700 passing) but I'm not done with the videos, labs, or the book yet so I wasn't expecting to pass, just get a feel for the exam. I'll keep studying and have complete confidence I'll pass next attempt.
  • hgsmillshgsmills Posts: 2Registered Users ■□□□□□□□□□
    I passed! Exam was good, I would recommend a couple hours of revision!

    Has the exam format changed since previous years? (Is it still 45 minutes, mostly multiple choice)
    I have to take this in 2 weeks as an entrance exam to a training programming I'm applying so I'm trying to cover all my bases. I'm using the MVA + Wiley book (making my way through the Wiley book and taking notes + answering all the questions).

    Hey Guys ,

    I have my 98-365 exam on Wednesday , I purchased a while ago CBt nugget Server Fundamentals and went through all of it and I have the MS Press book for it and I went trough the Udemy Study material as well.

    Also, I purchased the MeasureUp practise test which I figured at that time it was the best to practise to test the exam questions .

    So the last days I went over them again and again . Now I found on another page some practise questions that are much more difficult than the MeasureUp ones . Now im a little bit unsure where i stand with the studies.

    Anyone can help who done the Exam recently ?

    Cheers
    Oliver

    I took mine a year ago. So, just keep going over the practice questions..go slowly during the test.
    Never let your fear decide your fate....
  • cap712cap712 Posts: 4Registered Users ■□□□□□□□□□
    Thanks , Which practise questions are good practice? MeasureUP?
