    Default How are the CBT Nuggets for 294?

    Okay okay. I have definitely put this off for far too long, but im finally got over the slacker hump and starting studying for this exam. I have the MS Press (thanks eMeS BTW) book, the transcender, and my lab set up. The question is, as this point, are CBT nuggets worth a damn for this exam? I seem to be a visual learner for the most part; but feel I have adequate experience and study material to pass. I have a few people's input on it, just wanted the rest of the communities thoughs.

    As always, much appreciated


    PS: ITS ON, Daniel333!

    wow, a few nibbles but no bites...It's apparent that they are neither good or bad. I might just skip it this go round.

    See what happens when you take about 10 month hiatus from TE?

    Thanks. Ill probably just pass on these and save money. I should have enough experience to get through via books and lab (and work for that matter).

    I didn't use CBT nuggets for this exam either.... but I am using them for the 297 and my reaction is they are nice as a overview or 3rd or 4th resource, but for the price they aren't *that* great. One thing I've found is some of the answers on the 297 Case studies (that are downloadable in .doc format) differ from what Jeremy says when he goes over them ....whatever that's about.

    Anyways, good to see your back in the game Snadam. Go get em' tiger!

    Thanks Net! It feels good to study again (as odd as that sounds).
    Im probably going to go the same route for my next exams also.

    Hi! I have the nuggets for this exam, and I'm pleased to say that the venerable James Conrad hosts the series (he's my favourite)!!

    I'm still working through the MS Press book but this weekend I'll take a peek at some of the videos and let you know how it goes.

    I guess some feedback from someone who has taken and passed the exam would be more valuable to you, but nonetheless, as a fellow student my input might be useful to you.

    I have used CBT Nuggets for all of my previous MCP exams though, and they have proved invaluable, so I see no reason not to recommend them again for this exam (as long as you can put up with James's rubbish jokes and oddball history lessons). Myself, I find them strangely amusing.

    Yay! Snadam is back and actually doing some studying

    Good luck with this one mate, I found the exam to be a bit tricky so be sure to do lots of lab work. I had the CBT's and they were OK but to be honest the book, technet, lab work and the MUST read Royal's stickies should do the trick.
