I am preparing for this exam and would appreciate if you all could guide me to sites w/ free exam questions and also offer some advice on passing it.
Sorry I don't have any freebies for ya, I just bought the books for myself. But I have some tips.
Make sure you get the latest books (or reading material). Microsoft is allowed to change the criteria on the exams w/o notifying anyone, and they sure don't notify anybody.
Study your *** off. If you don't understand a section of the book you are reading, then don't skip over it and think "ahh, i'll catch on later". Do not skip ahead, and make sure you do a lot of programming on the side, just so that you know you've got the hang of it.
If you decide to jump to the most interesting chapter first, then you're going to mess yourself up. Even if the stuff in the beginning is boring, or if you already know it, still read it. In order to learn the most from the book you need to read from beginning to end, the MCSD books aren't reference guides, they are books written to teach you, and you have to read it in it's proper order (beginning to end .. simple 'nuf )
Good luck for the exams, you'll need it. Along with a little over $100
