  • 70-298 exam strategy?

    Hi all.
    I'm going to be taking 70-298 tomorrow.
    I hear that the format it Case Scenario then questions. What's the best way to approach these problems?
    -Read the entire Case Scenario then answer the questions?
    -Read the questions then the case scenario, then answer the questions?
    -Read questions then skim case scenario for answers

    The last one seems dangerous but first two seem very time consuming. What have been peoples experience with this test format?

    Thanks guys
    Regards,
    Jeremy

    I read the Do you have any tips for passing the Microsoft tests? and the first one is "Read every word
    Oh well, I guess I'll have to read fast.
    Well, less than 12 hours 'til test time... I'm going to bed.

        OK, I went into this test fully expecting to use that 2nd shot.
        I surprised myself by getting 811 on the exam!! I am now an MCSE!

        The test was as expected but they did give you enough time to read all the material. I forgot how many questions it was because they separated it into test-lets but it was somewhere in the 30s. The test took around 1 h 45 min.

        What I used to prep:

        Studying:
        -MS Press Designing Security for a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network
        -Que Certification Exam Cram2 Designing Security for a Windows Server 2003 Network
        -the resource CDs that came with the books
        -Internet (mainly TechNet)

        Tools and Methods:
        -Computer with Server 2003 and two 2003 VS
        -Coffee (this might be the most useful tool of them all)
        -Lack of sleep
        -Lack of social life

                      I thought it was Mean, Curt, and Sarcastic Enthusiast... I guess I'll have to change the way I treat people.
