Very disappointed.
More than half of the resources required to study for these exams are not yet published! yet the exams had already been finalized. Microsoft has always been greedy but I didn't expect MS to be so money hungry. There is no chance of passing the exam without the relevant materials. The exam outlines are also vague are unhelpful.
Very very disappointed.

70-551 is harrowing.

Nowhere that I've been able to find does it mention that you are simply taking 70-528, 70-536, and 70-547 back-to-back.

In fact, the only place that gives any clue to the ridiculous, extreme length of this testing trilogy is CramSession, which claims the test is "50 questions" and "90 minutes", which is completely wrong.

I was completely blindsided when I walked in to take a test in November, and had to sit for HOURS AND HOURS taking THREE &$@^$$#^* TESTS IN A ROW!
