I just went and passed - there was no Transcender product for this exam
during the beta.

I've never seen the Transcender for this particular exam, but I consistently
do worse on Transcenders than live exams. I think it's mostly because the

have a lot of experience with ATL or COM at the time (but lots with MFC),
but I passed both. FYI, I found the content of the exams to have major
overlaps. It wouldn't hurt to study for both 015 and 016 before taking
either - and the 2nd one should require much less preparation than the
