  • 70-270 - # questions, time allowed?

    I found some info saying 70-270 is 50 questions, 2.5 hours allowed. However, this information was from 2005. Has this changed or is this info still correct?

    Also is this the same for the rest of the MCSE tests (290, 291, etc..)?

    That is about right, although Microsoft can (and do) change it at any time.
    I think you need to knock off the 15 minutes commenting at the end, so about 135 minutes and 50-ish questions

    Other exams vary -- check out some of the reviews here for more details.
    Both 290 and 291 are longer.

      Perfect, thank you.

      50 questions seems very short, but I suppose that can work to my advantage.

        Exchange (70-284) and Security (70-299) were both 30 questions in 2 hours

              The best tip I can give anyone passing an MS exam is : Do what the question asks you.

              Don't think up a better way to do it, do it just as asked.
