I didn’t pass. I’ve never had such issues with any other exams before. These Microsoft tests are tough! Studying the official Microsoft Press books, and taking practice tests from the official Microsoft recommended practice test vendors is apparently not enough.
I read the book for this exam multiple times. I painstakingly did all the labs. This book does not cover test topics to the same depth and detail as you see them in the test.
I took the practice tests over and over again until I had all the questions memorized and repeatedly got perfect scores on them. The actual test is unfortunately not a whole lot like the practice exams.
Oh well, Microsoft has their Second Shot program going right now, so retakes are free. The program expires at the end of June 2010, so I will have to do the retakes soon.
