  • Could someone recomend a practice test......


    Looking for an alternative to Trancenders, While I think they are fine I was hoping maybe there was something else worth considering.

    Thank in advance.

    Try "Self Test" (

    Very good preparation material at a reasonable price

      The Best

      Hi 2 u all

      The Best at this stage to prep for exams is the TestKing stuff. Try their website.

      Another good site to look for answers is "hxxp://" check the certification section and also the personal share section

          I can understand your will to check something else, but just wanted to indicated that, "properly configured" Transcender with all the updates is enough to pass any Microsoft exam.
          I am telling you from my personal experience.
          I made MCSE NT 4.0 and MCSE 2000 with it.
          Just my 2 cents...

            Try out Redmond Exams, I am using them for the MCSE upgrade exams 292/296 and have found them very good so far. I previously used Transcender, and whilst Redmond may not be up to the same standard they are alot cheaper.

              Over the years I have used the Self Test Software (previously called the Big Red Tests cause they specialised in Novell exams) and Transcender for MS. As an instructor I have noticed a plethora of testing software like Redmond, Measure up, Prep logic, uCertify. I recommend my students use the software to target weaknesses in any areas they feel the need towork on. It is a misnomer to perceive the software as a tool to "help" pass the exam by memorising all the questions/answers. You may however pass the exam by identifying those weak areas and then researching or even better running say VMWARE to simulate what the question is asking.

              Testkings and Troytecs are a different ball game. These are written by companies that violate the NDA by deliberately getting people to sit the exams and then writing down the questions on paper (brain dumps). These are dangerous and give you a false sense of security for the exam. I feel the Vendor certification standard has lowered over the years because of these. Hence companies like Novell prefer that you demonstrate actual tasks in a live environment to pass. MS are going more to a simulated environment on most of their new exams for Windows 2003
