    Following are the answers to your questions:
    1. If you want to get certified on Microsoft Project 2010, you should take the 70-178 certification exam (Microsoft Project 2010, Managing Projects).
    2. The exam includes 55 questions and I believe you have 2.5 hours to complete the exam.  To pass the exam requires a score of 700 out of a possible 1000.
    3. I would recommend serious study before the exam, unless you have tons of experience with managing projects using Microsoft Project 2010.
    4. Following is the URL of the page where you can register for the exam:
     
    If you want to fully prepare for this exam, our company offers instructor-led training, computer-based training (CBT), and a book certified by Microsoft that maps completely to all of the subject areas in the objective domain for the test.  You can see our courses and the book at:
     
     
    I have taken this certification exam and easily passed the exam.  Hope this helps.

    Thanks

    I told Ray that he needs to take the 70-178 exam.  The number 77-178 was an old number Microsoft assigned to this exam originally, and then later changed officially to 70-178.  So, they are the same exam, but listed with two different exam numbers.  Hope this helps.

  • Dale - I got yours' and Gary's book today.  I will start studying for the -178 exam next week.  A couple of questions:

    (1) Is there any rough estimate that of the 55 questions on the exam- how many would correlate to your book's modules?  (Or any other category breakout per se?).

    (2) On prior success stories - for a novice user - what has been the average study-the-book-take-the test-duration?  I know this sounds a bit ambigous but with a PMI course we studied every Saturday as a class then did homework too.  It was a two month process from cracking PMBOK to sitting for the PMP.

    Any feedback, websites appreciated.

    Thank you for purchasing our book.  We appreciate your business!  :)
     
    1.  Our book and the accompanying sample files have been independently certified to completely map to the objective learning domain for the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist MCTS exam 70-178.  This means that the content of all 55 questions are addressed in our Ultimate Learning Guide book, plus in the Additional Exam Prep Topics.pdf document that is included in the sample files.  So, make sure you download the sample files that accompany the book, and then work all of the Hands On Exercises in both the book and the PDF file.  By the way, you find the information about downloading the sample files on page xi in the book.
     
    2.  Students in my class have reported that they took the 3-day class, studied for a couple of days, and then took the test.  Everyone who has taken our open enrollment class and then taken the test has passed the test.  No one who is doing book-only learning has reported how long they studied.  If you are a novice user, I would recommend that you do not skip anything in either the book or the PDF document.  Work all of the exercises, and then I believe you would have the requisite knowledge to pass the exam.
     
    Please let us know WHEN (not if) you pass the exam, and if you are especially brave, please let us know your passing score.
