  • Mick’s General exam pattern
    Don’t be afraid to run through the questions as many times as you need e.g. 5, 6 or 7 times.
    On the first ‘pass’ only answer questions that:
    You *know* 100%
    Are short and easy to answer
    Leave long winded questions till 2nd pass.
    First pass is to get a ‘feel’ for the questions
    By the end of the first pass, all the 100% ones are answered and you’re not stressing on time/question constraints.
  • General Tips - Taking Exam (cont.)
    Budget time if necessary - halfway check
    Checkboxes for Comment, Review
    Always Review any questions in doubt!
    Sometimes later exam questions can jog memory
    When in doubt, always stick with first answer
    Comments are read, be nice!
    Interface is 640x480
    For worldwide exam compatibility
    Can be frustrating for larger questions
  • General Tips – Mick’s Special Tips
    Read Answers first!
    Prime your brain - the Reticular Activating Cortex
    Impress friends with phrases like “Reticular Activating Cortex”
    Do not over analyse; e.g Permissions
    The Microsoft Exam Universe
    Think “what is the official Microsoft answer?”
    Think “what if the world had only MS products?”
    No 3rd party products on exam – unlike a .NET one I did 
