This exam was easier for me cause it's more oriented towards business requirements. Server farms, Authentication and so on. The exam is divided by testlets and every testlet has 1 or max 4 question to answer, depending on the amount of question you have to answer you get a certain amount of time that you have to be able to answer all questions! If you go to the next question you cant review the testlet question anymore. I had 16 testlet question and 10 normal questions. The testlet explain a business need or scenario and you have to propose a solution (your answer). Although the possible answers still try to trick you if you read the question really good you should be able by exclusion to give the right answer. You have to carefully read the question and most of the time they ask for:
- minimum amount of administrative effort
- minimize the number of Web applications and site collections
- minimize downtime
- must minimize costs
So just pay attention to those small things, cause this can make a answer change.
This exam i tried to learn with MeasureUp, but other than get used to the multiple choice i don't think its a good tool to prepare for Exam. The only good thing i like about MeasureUp is that the answers are well explained with links to online topics.
I have two more Exams to go:
For the Developer Certification you need two exams
Exam 70-573: TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development
Exam 70-576: PRO: Designing and Developing Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Applications
I'll keep you posted!
