Technically Speaking All in on IT

I don't think I am violating the multi-paged pre-exam NDA by offering this tip after sitting for 70-236 this morning: know they powershell syntax and commandlets. Easily 75%+ of my test involved trying to choose which syntax I should use to perform a configuration related task in Exchange 2007. I have heard there was some powershell on the exam. I even looked over the "skills being measured." This is the only item among 20 or so: "Implement bulk management of mail-enabled objects." Hmmm. I was not happy.

I am a GUI-lover! I have never been a CLI junkie ... I will do 99% of my tasks from the Exchange Management Console unless bulk modification activities are required. However, Microsoft has decided I can only be a pro if I know the command line ....

I do not think that the focus on PowerShell on this exams is wrong (And i've passed 70-236 and 70-237).

PowerShell is very important for managing more complex Exchange 2007 environments, and even in smaller Environments you will need PowerShell to manage several (important) features.

And the PowerShell questions were not difficult - they didn't nitpick on details, if you forced yourself to use PowerShell for all your Exchange tasks (which i did as preparation) you'll be able to tell the commands apart.

Oh, and 70-237 is going to be a lot easier than 70-236. The exam focuses on how you should approach things on a very high level, so you'll need to know the requirements of each role etc.

Lukas - I think though, that via the exam they are forcing you to become proficient in a certain method of administering a product from a company that has always focused on the GUI and had the CL as an option. I have used this product a lot and didn't fail by much, but literally 47 out of the 53 questions had a powershell syntax component to them. I didn't use powershell *that* much! I think you found it reasonable as a. you passed and b. you focused on it in your experience. I never would have as I don't do well with that interface. I passed 237 and am waiting on the results from 238. I cannot say how difficult the questions were as I did not live in powershell ... but I understand what you are saying. :)

Cracks me up all these people asking for study material, what's the bet that most are Indians who just "dump" for exams, then use these qualifications to demonstrate how good their skills are when applying for offshore jobs, shafting us IT guys who actually study

Hey,

I sat the 70-236 last week and failed. I had used the pass4sure 106 questions which i memorised completely. They have updated the exam in May 2009. I just purchased the new pass4sure and testking Q&As and they seem to be the same as the old ones. I cant recognise any questions that were on the exam. Apparently MS cracked down on these sites that were giving out the real exam questions. If anyone has found the real current questions anywhere can they let me know at trismunky@hotmail.com

Instead of trying to cheat, why dont you put your effort into learning the product so you can pass the exam from your actual knowledge of Exchange rather than memorising exam answers.

I know he product very well but personally i couldn't give a crap about the commands in the shell as i use the GUI for everything. Also I don't know anything about Edge servers because they arent required in my company. Im not wasting my time learning everything if I'll never use it. Half the questions on the exam are a waste of time.

If you are only learning the things that you are going to use, thats fine. Just dont bother with the exam - because the qualification is all about knowing the entire product. You cant get certified in just the parts of Exchange that your company wants to use. Thats ridiculous.

For all you people asking for dumps please stop it. The only dump you need is www.microsoft.com/technet. Download the product, use it and learn it. If you are going to dump the exam and then you get a real life problem you wont have a clue what to do. You will never get anywhere in your career if you just dump exams all the time!

Hi guys,

I have been toying with the idea of taking the 70-236 exams, is this still valid, or should one wait and start on exchange 2010.

Also I hear there are a lot of questions on cmdlets, is the MS study guide sufficient to get one through?

I have failed 70-236 twice 525 was my latest score (only had 4 weeks to do it!), its still massively PS focussed i'd highly recommend studying LCR CCR and SCR, disaster recovery (backups etc) and recipient config/PF replicas, configuring the exchange infrastructure is VERY important.
