    I am looking for recommendations for the best study guide to help me pass the exam. I need it to be as inexpensive as possible so a book would probably be best!

    Thanks

    Adding to that..

    Also, are there any free online exam practice tests, where we can assess ourselves before attempting the actual certification…Thanks in advance

    Just back from the MS Project 2012 Conference in Phoenix, where I passed exam 70-178 (Microsoft Project 2010: Managing Projects). This exam results in the MCTP credential.

    Microsoft states there no official study materials or practice exams exist for 70-178. I made of the book “Ultimate Study Guide: Foundations Microsoft Project 2010” available from Project Experts (or Amazon). It took about 8 weeks to read the entire book and complete the practice labs. Even if you don’t sit for the test, your knowledge of MS Project will greatly improve.

    I scored about 80% or so on each of the test sections. No score is supplied other than a bar chart and 80% is an estimate on my part.

    I also have the Project Server book from Project Experts. We call it the “Gold Book of Knowledge”!

    Good luck on oyur exam.

    I took the on-line version of this, and it was much quicker (and probably much more expensive). It took me about ten days, but this was hitting it fairly hard every night. I didn’t find the book in my original searches, and am sure that comparing the costs now will make me feel quite sick. The course was nearly $300, but was very effective. I passed first time at around 90% in most areas. I agree with Dave that it will greatly improve your Project 2010 knowledge. The msProjectExpert folks know their stuff.
