1  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MOS / practice exams on: October 11, 2005, 09:12:50 AM
I haven't used computer based practice exams myself.  But the books I have been using have practice questions for each chapter, and these are pretty close to the actual exams.

Exam questions are multi-part, working on the same object.  So, you would see a spreadsheet, and at the bottom of the screen there would be 2 or 3 tasks to perform on it.  
***Beware*** Sometimes you will need to scroll the question screen to see all the questions!  Always make sure you have done everything asked!

Questions typically run as follows:

1.  Record a macro called BoldItalic which formats text bold and italic.
2.  Run this macro on x y or z.
3.  Add this macro to the x y or z toolbar.

If you make a mistake and want to start the set again, you can click restart.  You then do the set again without any penalty except time lost.  When you are done, click the done button (whatever it's called).

Make sure you read all of the questions carefully.  Do each step called for.  Re-read the question to make sure you didn't miss anything.  Only move on when you are certain you didn't miss anything.

Hope this helps.

"From what you've read the exam is not multiple choice."  That's an understatement.  The exams are "live", meaning you appear to be working on Excel, with a pane below Excel for the questions. So, it is not knowledge based, but skill based.
You may want to try a simpler MOS exam before you tackle Excel expert.  After I took my first MOS exam, I found it easier to study for, and to take, my next exam.

When I clicked on the link I just got an upload page on Gigashare.  Has the file disappeared?  Or do I need to do anything else?
Thank you,
4  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MOS / passed, but problems with exams on: October 10, 2005, 03:55:44 PM
Just passed the Word Expert exam!  But I have noticed some problems with exam questions.
One question said to "complete the following three steps", but there were only two questions below (and neither of them had two actions).
Another question had me make something usable for IE 6.0, but it was only possible to make it usable for IE 4.0 and below.

But here's the really bugging one:
I had to insert a graphic and then wrap it.  Standard stuff, of course.  By default the drawing canvas is active.  If you insert a graphic using a drawing canvas, you cannot wrap the graphic, only the canvas.  As you all know! Smiley  But it didn't ask me to deactivate the canvas.  I did deactivate it, because it was the only way to wrap the graphic.  Did I do the right thing?  Comments, please!

With some of the problems on questions, and the difficulty with interpreting wording exactly, I think the MOS exams are slightly a crap shoot.  You sometimes have to guess the right solution and hope for the best.  Which means you have to plan to pass by a good margin in case some of the questions are problems.  So, hit those books!  Prepare completely!  Know everything!  

Anyway, I think I got lucky, because I passed Word Expert today with a 967!  Woo hoo!  I had a tougher time with Outlook and PowerPoint.  Now, on to Excel expert.

5  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MOS / legit test questions? on: July 29, 2003, 12:01:42 AM
Like I said in my original post, I am looking for questions in the style of  MOS exam questions.  I would not like anyone to give me questions they took from a real exam.

I could make up plenty of questions myself, but obviously they would mostly be on functions I already know about.  

But I am not asking for braindump information.

6  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MOS / Outlook--signature format problems on: April 08, 2003, 12:04:58 AM
I have edited it in its own file.  The funny thing is, sometimes it appears as I set it, and sometimes it doesn't.
It always appears correctly when I create a new message.
When I reply is when it messes up.  Perhaps it has to do with the text type of the message I'm replying to?
7  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MOS / legit test questions? on: April 02, 2003, 12:20:18 AM
Thanks for the replies.
I already knew that the MOS tests are hands on tests.  What I am looking for are some questions such as:

"format the document so the page number doesn't appear on the first page."

Two colleagues and I are planning to take the MOS exams, and we want to set each other tasks to practice.
Sadly, since we are in India, I think practice CD's are out of the question.  I did contact certiport about licensing fees, and overseas shipping, but they never got back to me.
8  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MOS / Spelling dictionary-deleting words on: April 01, 2003, 04:41:16 AM
How can one delete things added to their custom dicionary?  A colleague of mine keeps accidentally adding her misspellings, and I figured I ought to know how to help her if I want to be MOS, eh?
9  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MOS / Outlook--signature format problems on: March 31, 2003, 06:34:24 AM
:confused: I set a signature in Outlook (Tools-->Options-->Mail Format-->Signatures).  I set it as 10 point, but often it appears in 12 point, with an extra space between each line.
Any idea what might be going on here?
10  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MOS / legit test questions? on: March 31, 2003, 05:10:22 AM
Does anybody know if there is any place that has legitemate test questions?  I mean, no questions taken right off an actual exam (like braindumps).  But questions people have made up in the style of real exam questions.
