What is the best alternative for passing Microsoft certification exams now that Pass4sure and Test King no longer offer practice Microsoft certification exams?

What is the best alternative for passing Microsoft certification exams now that Pass4sure and Test King no longer offer practice Microsoft certification exams?

A friend of mine asked me to post this question. He is looking for a way to quickly and easily pass the latest Microsoft certification exams, including Exchange Server 2010 and Windows 7.

What are the best resources that are available to pass these Microsoft exams now that Pass4sure and Test King no longer offer the practice Microsoft certification exams?

It's not just about learning to pass the exams you need to have some experience in the use of the software.

I suggest he/she downloads the evaluation software from the Microsoft site and installs it on Virtual machines to actually get a feel for the software.

I have always used Transcenders, but MS is more and more becoming like Cisco where memorizing answers will only get you so far. I agree with demazter, nothing beats experience.

Totally agree .... I've had too many MCSE's come to apply for a job and they are totally lost when it comes to the basics..... Buy the books....practice from the evals as suggested by demazter and if you wish to practice for the tests go to: http://www.testout.com/

It's actually quite amusing when someone puts MCSE (or MCITP) on their CV and then you get a chance to ask them questions!

You can spot a paper cert a mile off!

Definitely agree. That may get you to a phone interview but that's about it. I get very particular about experience because I cannot afford to give you on the job training if you are coming in as an engineer. I usually promote from within as I can see those who are movers and shakers first hand.

The best were in their day: ExamEssentials .... and they were great because they had hundreds of questions and everyone had a copy of them. They went out of business in 2005.
Now days, Microsoft has changed the way they test and you really need to read, understand and practice (it takes you more time to read the questions and to analyze them than anything else). Practice tests will not help you today, at least not for Microsoft exams.
Other great ones in their day:
