I could go on but the reason i would recommend people to stay away from this exam until it’s improved is for a couple of reasons that just is unfair for students:
-I did not get many Design-questions, and by that I mean questions that actually was asked from a design perspective. I got plenty of “if you don’t know what these 3-letters mean and which technology they belong to – then you have to guess”. (it’s fair – yes, but it was the way they were asked…grammatical, sentence, english-written wise)
-At least 50% of the questions had questions like “Out of these options which are cars? (choose 2): bmw, mercedes, volvo, ferrarri”. (yeah, 50% questions like that where you literally had to guess!)
-Plenty of questions was just poorly written in english and made little or no sense. I had to read almost all questions at least three times and i could still on many of them not figure out what they were asking for.
-On at least 20 questions, probably more, they had mixed up the technology you were asked about with the answers from a different technology.
The only questions that I actually felt like they were fair and from a design perspective was the Drag-n-Drop questions. But the MCSA, MCMA-questions needs to be improved a LOT before i will schedule this exam again!
I created this as a discussion to see if anyone else is having simular experiences?
Note: I did not have this bad experience with the old version at all, i failed that one becuase i went into it knowing i was weak on QoS and SP-technologies.
But this new one i felt that after 10 questions i KNEW i was going to fail because the quality of the exam was just bad.
Could i have flipped it the other way around and gotten a pass?
I honestly don’t think i could do anything more than I did, and with these type of quality on the exam it’s impossible to say where I stand since the score just shows how good you were at guessing – more or less.
