I'm not even sure if this is the right place for this, but I was wondering if anyone could help me.

I'm trying to study for the Microsoft 70 - 270 exam (Installing, Configuring, and Administering Microsoft Windows XP Professional), and was wondering
if I could get any help on how to study for the exam, and actually, anything at all would be really appreciated.

Thanks :thumbsup:

ps: if this is not the right board for this topic, could someone kindly tell me the directions to the right board?

Everyone has their own learning style, so there really isn't a right or wrong way to study for
this. Personally, my goal for certifications is to be able to apply the knowledge after
successfully passing the exam. Too many people have the piece of paper, but not enough knowledge,
or experience to apply it on the job. With that said, I normally read the Exam Cram book that
focuses on the exam(twice or three times). Also, I try to do as much hands-on as possible. If it
talks about in the text, also try it yourself on a test computer. Near the end of my studies, I
will try one of the exam simulations that are available for you to purchase. Normally, there is a
"Study Mode" that will give you detailed answers. At work, we have CBT's available for all of the
MS exams. -- They're also very helpful in studying for an exam, if they are available to you.

Can't speak specifically about this exam, but I have written many others as described above without any failures.

Make your own notes.
Be able to perform any tasks on your computer. Doing something yourself is much better than merely reading about it.
Pretend someone is asking you about a particular problem or area or step; teaching someone else (even a imaginary friend) how to do something is the best way to learn how to do it.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Get the books and take the practice exams in them. The book will also have notes in the front about the objectives that the exam will cover.

Here's a link to the Microsoft Learning website for 70-270: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-270.mspx
Lot's of good info there also!
