Although the goal of certification is better IT skills, passing the exams can also require improved test-taking skills—and exam simulation is an effective way to prepare for the test situation. According to Iwanski, "Although comparing the prices and coverage that each vendor offers is relatively easy, you should also investigate how accurately the simulations represent the actual tests, how well the vendors explain and reference the test answers, what tools the vendors provide for tracking your progress and identifying areas that need work, and what kind of customer support the vendors provide." Because Microsoft's time-limited exams incorporate extensive technical scenarios, multiple correct answers, and interactive graphical exhibits, they can be a bit daunting. However, exam simulation products should help—and most vendors offer trial versions of their products to test-drive. This Buyer's Guide includes the following vendors, with product name, description, price, and vendor contact information: BeachFront Quizzer, BFQ Press, CBT Vision, Cert21.com, The Coriolis Group, FastTrak Express, LearnKey, MeasureUp, Mobiliware, prepatest.com, Self Test Software, TestOut, Toggit Software, Transcender, and Whizlabs Software.
