Much obliged;

If you don't know the answer, mark it & come back to it for review. Don't waste time dwelling on a question just because it's phrased in an unusual way.

When you go back to review the marked questions, read them & if you're still not sure, leave them marked. Come back to them later. Repeat this until you've all of them answered.

Just stay calm throughout, there's plenty of time to get it all finished.


Good luck.

Thanks @Eddie. I've learnt over the last few exams to use every single minute that you have; to read the question @ least twice; and to use the 'Mark for Review' feature.

For the trickier ones, I try and nail it down to 50/50; and then ask "What Would Jesus Do?"

No worries.. From all the practise questions I've done (2000+) it seems there is quite a bit to do with AD, GPO's, effective permissions etc.

Something I can honestly say I've had SFA experience with

Have a look through examforum.co.uk.

Quite a few people have posted there experiences on most IT/Tech exams.

The real exam is always easier than the practice exams Methical!

I was considering taking the 270 I studied the 270 material to take the 271-272.

I did not study AT ALL for the 272 just got tired of studying the 271 and never cracked open the 272 and still passed with a 855!

Trust me you got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think the worst thing about MS exams is the awkward wording.

Yess.. the wording and the grammar.. Damn Americans ! =P~
It was probably written by some Indian dude with English as his 12th language.

I hate the questions "Choose what you think is BEST.."
And they are all bloody similar, and they are all good answers.

I love the ones where "That answer is stupid, thats retarded, a pizza tech would do that one .. and theres my answer there!"

I also heard that 270 was more indepth thn 271 272

Its far harder than the 271,272. I studied 70-270 that for that reason. Many of my guides suggested studying 270 material instead of 271. So I purchased the Testout. (www.testout.com) and did the entire course. purchased Trancender practice test and passed the 271 and then got lazy and took the 272 (without studying) and passed which surprised me.

Basically Methical if you pass the 270 turn around and order the 271-272 and you should blow it away.

I'm reluctant to take the 270 because of its difficulty. Most of the questions have more than one valid answer. Or its an all out trick!

Heh, I'd be happy if I passed an exam I didn't study for .. 'specially with a good mark of 855 ! An hour and 10 min to go before I sit .. My head is aching already

I'm using the Microsoft Press book, the Readiness Suite that came with the book, MeasureUp.com & TestKing Practise Questions.
