Title: I also Made it!!!
Post by: limsam on December 26, 2001, 08:19:05 PM

I passed it yesterday. I spent about 4 hrs in the exam!

Approximately 20 questions for each individual test. Not many choose all. There were many choose 2, choose 3 etc.

Some of the questions were purposefully (I think) confusing. Perhaps they want to confuse you to fail.

Remember MS increased the exam fee by 25%!.

Hi limsam,

Congratulations on  your pass! Well done!

So what is your next paper? You know you need one more design exam to become MCSE 2000 right? Which one is your choice?

Is MS increasing the exam fee by 25% too in Singapore? What is the current fee? I'm in Malaysia and the current rate is RM210. I'm yet to find out what the new rate is.

Good luck!

About the next exam, I haven't decided about it. By commmon sense, I need the easiest one. Because MS manipulates the MCSE for their benefit, I do not want to sweat a lot to get it.

The exam fee in Singapore is also increased. Now here, the new charge will be 225 S$ from Jan4. Previously, it was 176 S$.

The new charge in Malasia is 80 US$. I wonder whether I can sit for the exam in Johor B. so that I can save around US$ 45, which is pretty good. I will do it as far as there is no rule to prevent me from doing it!

Let me know whether there is any rule there in M'Sia. JB is pretty near from Singapore.

Try the following for charges.

Hi limsam,

I just checked with Prometric and was told that the new rate here will be RM300. From RM210 to RM300, that's 42.85% increase! Oh man!

Anyway, it's still cheaper than S$225, right?

I'm not sure if there's any rule preventing your from taking exams in another country. You might want to call Prometric or VUE to find out.

As for which design paper is the easiest. I took all 3 that were available few months ago (Design AD, Design NI, Design Security) and found that the level of difficulty was more or less the same. There's a new design paper now, which is Designing Highly Available Web Solutions. You might want to try that out?
Whichever one you choose, good luck!

Congratulations, limsam.
I passed this monster on Dec 21. Honestly I was expecting this test to be harder. I used Transcender practice tests for exam preparation. Tran$cender made their tests a lot difficult and complecated.

Well done, lisman!!!
