Having passed the 70-450 and 70-451 I'm now starting to work on my MCSE and MCSA. I've been researching practice tests and found ActualTests to be the best deal.

What I'm wondering is what kind of quality they are? Does anyone have some experience with them? I've tried Measureup and Transcender and quite liked both of them.

If memory serves correctly, MS has partnered with MeasureUp previously.

I've used Measureup before and certainly liked them. Unfortunately they only have exams for the 70-461 & 70-462 so far. I've also checked Transcender and they only have the 70-462. Really what I need is the 70-457 and 70-458. The 60's will do in a pinch but if I'm going to go that route the one I need most is the 70-463, and it will be that much more expensive.

ActualTests has what I want and is the cheapest I've seen, but I keep seeing poor reviews for their non-SQL exams. My guess is that their SQL exams will be just as poor, but I thought I would see if anyone knew first hand.

Or for that matter if anyone knows of a good set of practice exams for the MCSA & MCSE upgrade tests. Or a cheap set of practice exams for the regular tests.

I'd be a little more concerned about this more than the exam quality http://www.techexams.net/forums/mcdst/11848-passed-70-271-easy.html, plus read through their FAQ, there's mention of 'scouring the web for questions' rather than then creating practice questions for practice exams.
