    Why can’t we purchase just the books, without the exams? I emailed directly about this before, and I was told there is no plan to sell just the (e)book itself.



    1. Ken –

      You can purchase the book or ebook without a practice exam. Look for the entries that don’t say “with Practice Test Access” in the product listings:

        Thanks for the reply. The one in particular that I am looking at, 70-346, has one without the practice exam, however the publish date is much older.

        The ISBN number is different, so I assumed that the book has been updated. If you can confirm that the book is identical, and is current for the updated content, then I would feel comfortable purchasing the one without the practice exam.



        1. Ken,

          I can confirm that the book is, indeed, the exact same book as the one listed with the practice test. The dates are newer on the practice test/book combinations only because the items are new listings in our store. We apologize for the confusion regarding this matter – it’s been confusing to many people. We’re currently working on a solution to this issue.

          In the meantime, I can let you know that there are no current plans to revise Exam Ref 70-346, so you can be confident that this listing is the right book for your needs:

    What if you have already bought the ebook versions? Is there a way to get the practice tests added on?



    1. Lewis –

      We can’t add practice tests to previous purchases, however, the Official Practice Tests are for sale individually at MeasureUp:

    I am unemployed and is there another way to get discounts for the exams and test prep software? This is so expensive just to get the real knowledge I need to find a job. I seem to have run into a brick wall where I live. They are asking if I am certified in Windows 10 and Microsoft office. Is this the future for getting a job?

  4. Peter says:

  5. Greg says:
