    I agree Master, prinitng on any exam is insane, i rather be tested on safety procedure, then tears a printer inside out to identify what the actual problem is.

    hi Webmaster
    i've just been reading your 20-270 installing win xp pro technote
    excellent read
    but you list the min requirements as
    VGA compatible or higher
    it actually needs SVGA 800x600 or higher
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/p...ng/sysreqs.asp
    just to let you know so as you can alter it
    thanks again for the work you put into this site

    My 70-270 training kit from MS press says VGA adapter, but you are correct. Thanks, I'll change it.

    This is actually the same old problem, for many OS versions there were conflicting resources for the sys requirements. Perhaps part of the reason they don't question on system requirements in the exam

    Thanks WebMaster for all your good work. I appreciate it greatly.

    I have a quick question regarding study material. Currently, I'm using a book by Sybex, which seems fine, but I'm worried, because I've seen you recommend the 70-270 trainng kit from MS. My question is this: Will I get all I need to know to pass the exam from the Sybex book, or should I switch to the 70-270 training kit? TIA!

    Also, would you recommend using transcender? It seems expensive, almost cost prohibitive for someone on a budget.

    Thanks Again

    Thanks a lot for your comments.

    I'm working on some new TechNotes for the 70-270 exam covering backup/restore, inclusing system restore, system state data etc.etc. which should be ready soon.

    I personally prefer the MS Training Kits, mostly because no single book covers it all (you always need to do some additional reading on the web, and or help files) and the MS kits cover the primary topics and provide lab excersises that often correspond to exam questions.

    Transcenders are only expensive compared to the cheap products. I think it is worth the money, especially for MS exams. Not only the questions are very similar to the kind you'll see in the real exam, but the extensive explanations and perfect references are what make Transcenders such a good product.

    Also check out the deal we made with ExamForce allowing us to give free version of there products: http://www.examforce.com/customer/special4.php?sid=525

    I just finshed new TechNotes for the 70-270 exam, which cover Backup, Restore, System State Data, ASR, System Restore, Safe Mode, Last Know Good, Device Driver Roll Back and more.

    Should have some new ones (Devices and Drivers) ready very soon... as well as the 70-210 versions of these notes.

    Have fun reading!

    The Devices and Drivers TechNotes is becoming a bit too long, so I decided to cut it in two, having finished the first half

    The first for this domain is Storage, it covers storage types, dynamic and basic, spanning, striping, removable media and basic storage management tasks. You can find the related exam objectives at the bottom of the notes.

    The remaining half of Devices and Drivers will cover the remaing Skills Being Measured from the Devices and Drivers domain:
    Implement, manage, and troubleshoot display devices.
    Configure multiple-display support.
    Install, configure, and troubleshoot a video adapter.

    Configure Advanced Configuration Power Interface (ACPI).
    Implement, manage, and troubleshoot input and output (I/O) devices.
    Monitor, configure, and troubleshoot I/O devices, such as printers, scanners, multimedia devices, mouse, keyboard, and smart card reader.
    Monitor, configure, and troubleshoot multimedia hardware, such as cameras.
    Install, configure, and manage modems.
    Install, configure, and manage Infrared Data Association (IrDA) devices.
    Install, configure, and manage wireless devices.
    Install, configure, and manage USB devices.
    Install, configure, and manage hand held devices.
    Install, configure, and manage network adapters.

    Manage and troubleshoot drivers and driver signing.
    Monitor and configure multiprocessor computers.
    I'm half way with that one, and should have it ready within a week or so.... if things go the way I planned for a change

    After that, I think three more TechNotes will make it complete:
    1. Performance
    Monitoring and Optimizing System Performance and Reliability
    Monitor, optimize, and troubleshoot performance of the Windows XP Professional desktop.
    Optimize and troubleshoot memory performance.
    Optimize and troubleshoot processor utilization.
    Optimize and troubleshoot disk performance.
    Optimize and troubleshoot application performance.
    Configure, manage, and troubleshoot Scheduled Tasks.

    Manage, monitor, and optimize system performance for mobile users.
    2. Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Network Protocols and Services
    3. Configuring, Managing, and Troubleshooting Security

    Default TechNote Question

    Got a question regarding the Backup, Restore, Repair, and Recover TechNote. In the System State Data section there’s a sentence I can’t seem to grasp.

    “You must be an administrator on the local computer to back up and restore System State data, and you can only backup the System State data on a remote computer, not on a remote computer.”

    Any thoughts?

    “You must be an administrator on the local computer to back up and restore System State data, and you can only backup the System State data on a remote computer, not on a remote computer.”
    should be (I updated the TechNotes):
    “You must be an administrator on the local computer to back up and restore System State data, and you can only backup the System State data on the local computer, not on a remote computer.”
    Thanks for letting me know, and I'm sorry if it caused any confusion.

    Yeah, I will write a separate TechNote for the "Configure, manage, and troubleshoot Internet Explorer security settings" exam objective.

    It is on the bottom of the list though

    www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-270.asp

    I suggest you try out the various settings and use XP's Help and Support search option for the topics you have difficulty grasping.


    I just added new TechNotes for other 70-270 exam objectives though:

    Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop
