Seems like you're getting serious about passing the test, but not really learning all that much...

Transcender has a reputation for being very close to the actual exams.

Just using the product for a few months and making sure you've covered everything in the exam outline is normally good enough.

If you're not feeling motivated to do the actual learning, a Google search for "braindump" plus the exam number can be rewarding.

My employer purchased TestKing as a study guide and it was a little too good.

I believe Msft recently tried to sue Testking. There is a reason for that.

For theft of trade secrets of all things - the secrets involved, of course, were the proprietary test questions - which are/were correct to the letter.

I just picked up the study guide for 70-315 from testking (because I would rather study/do labs and *learn* it than memorize it).

It was a complete rehash of the MS Press 70-315 Self-Paced Study book.  I was not amused.  No wonder MS is trying to sue TestKing -- it's called PLAGIARISM!
