I’ve just finished writing 70-464. As I commented at the end, I found the overall quality of the exam lower than the first three I wrote.
Owing to the non-disclosure I sign for every one, I can’t talk about specifics, but there were numerous typos, product references were wrong, and in some cases, I read the question as implicit approval of bad SQL and development practice.
The typos annoyed me the most. They were in the code samples, so the code wouldn’t have run as shown.
I have not commented on any exams up to now, so I did feel strongly about the problems with this one.
I suspect one of the reasons is because fewer people do the MCSE exams as opposed to the MCSA. But they’ve been out a year (as of this week), so frankly there’s no excuse.
Anyway, my last one of this series is tomorrow. I’m hoping my luck and studying bear through.
Once that’s done I can think about the MCSM.
