    Hi all, any last minute tips anyone can bung in for the DST exams? I've got em this Friday...better start revising at some point then :)

    The test questions seem so dumb sometimes. Instead of the actual answer, the right answer seems to be to escalate it to a "clever person". Doesnt really solve the problem or sound like a decent solution to me.

    Anyone thats done 270 and 271....as I already got 921 in the 270, i take it the DST will be a piece of p1ss yeah?

    Cheers

    Cheers,

    Got the 290 around end of November and 291 scheduled for late January. That'll give me the MCSA and complete my college course. As I cant change the couse schedule that I'm on, I might get started on learning the other three for MCSE in the meantime, so when it gets to January I at least have another couple under my belt.

    Only ever installed server a few times and messed about with it or used the virtual PCs at college (dual core workstations with 2 gig ram..still slow lol), so I know a lot less than I already knew before starting to learn the dst or xp pro exams.

    Ta, T

    Nice one mate 8)

    The 70-290 isnt *too* difficult if you have put the time in to pass the 70-270.

    The 70-291 is hell though! :cry:

    Well done :clap.
    I have been putting in several hours a day since i took the 270 (last week) and think i will be ready to take the 271 sometime next week.
    I don't know if it is because i studied like mad for the 270, but the 271 seems more <answer what you think Microsoft want you to say> :)

    Good luck with the 290 :thumbleft

    Si

    Hey Si,

    So you passed the 270 then? Well done mate! :D

    The 271 is a bit dumb in ways. I knew almost all the questions prior to the 270 from doing so many test papers, but didnt bother so much with the 271. In 270, the answers are logical. In 271 and 272, it seems like you're not unleashed on the entire systems, being only a DST, so often the answer is to "ask an admin to xxxx" I haven't learnt to excalate problems, ive learnt to fix them myself, which is probably why i got a bit less than in the 270.

    I hope the 290s isnt too bad, but it's 291 that is meant to be a meanie....Any ideas on which others to do for mcse?

    I'll have dst, 270,290 and 291...so which are the 'best' to add in?

    Cheers,

    Tom
