Just a quick word of warning about the sample exam questions available for download on Partnernet.
First of all there's only 5 of them - what use is that? I mean I dont expect to find the actual exam questions, but a good number of similar questions from all the areas covered by the exam would be a usefull study aid.
Second and more importantly the stated answers are mostly incorrect. I thought I was having a 'mare so I've cross referenced my EV 9 notes and the support docs for EV9.
I have passed this back to my companies account manager for escalation.

Thanks for your feedback Andy - I will pass this onto the appropriate department to investigate.

are you absolutely sure the questions are wrong?
11-17-2010 09:44 AM
The questions are right its the answers that are wrong.
OK here goes
1. What is the purpose of the Enterprise Vault Directory Service?
a. to provide service access to Vault Stores and Archives
b. to manage indexes of archived data
c. to manage selected items to be restored
d. to provide services access to site configuration information
the answers listed on the last page
1-b, 2-a, 3-b&d, 4-d, 5-d
the correct answer is d - its even highlighted in the document.
Question 2 is also wrong, as is question 5. One of the other questions is the woolly question that requires multiple answers, but even the suggested answers dont make sense to anyone that knows anything about EV.

LOL ok point taken :)
I would be interested in seeing #5 though, a lot of times there appear to be multiple right answers that you have to re-read like 5 or 6 times and you'll see a word out of place that makes the answer wrong (its amazing how many people will auto complete an answer and get it wrong)

So now I have brought this to your attention, do I get a 'bye on my STS exam?
(well you have to try dont you?)
All the best

If you get 100% in it, it's a deal! :)

Its a great effort Andy! Thumbs up for that, not often I get a giggle out of the EV forums.

All the best
