I agree with all of you! It feels better to have passed the certification exams because of hard work. I passed 290 with a score of 700 by reading books and going through the Microsoft Knowledg Base. I passed 270 with a score of 921 because of Test King. I'm more proud of my 290 result because it truly reflects how much of what I understand. A real certified professional should be able to pass even without Test King and the like. Those who passed by simply memorizing what is in Test King and not understanding anything at all are like empty egg shells.
