CD was worthless, best study material for this exam for getting a feel for the new user interface for the 70-100 exam is the Transcender... All the books I've seen spend too much time on MSF which wasn't directly covered by the 70-100 exam.

I was lucky enough to get on the beta list for this Transcender product and highly recommend it.

Take care,

I passed the 70-100 exam a little over a year ago. As everyone else, I expected to find all I needed for the exam -- or at least 80% of it -- in the MS-Press training kit. Although the book is very interesting and informative, it hardly covers 30% of the material you need to know on the test. For one, I can't remember a single question on the exam regarding the MSF. It looks like Brian didn't take the exam yet, for he asserts that knowledge of the MSF is required for the exam. It's a bold lie.

What you do need to know for the exam are the following:
-Database Design, including Normalizing.
-Reading carefully business requirements and understanding how to translate it into technical specs.
-Drawing a workflow/dataflow chart.
-Thorough apprehension of MS technologies and when to use what.

If you are seriously about the exam, I strongly suggest that you get the Transcender simulater.

P.S. Keep in mind that with the release of the .Net Framework and VS.Net there will be a huge paradigm shift in the way of requirements and solutions. Therefore, you should rather put more effort into learning the .Net framework.

Agree that the book wasnt a lot of help. I thought it was the worst of the exams I've taken, not because I didnt know the material but because it was in many cases..."what do they want??"

I hear what you're saying about .Net and all. I took the exam because it was the last one I needed. In all honestly I did learn a lot and glad I did the reading - even if it didnt help a lot on the test!
