    Evening All,

    Been very quiet these last few months what with Work etc.
    I have the 271 booked for this week (Thursday) and in all honesty not too confident. Have been through the Self Paced Training Kit and seems to be going well. Have also got the Second Shot option too so if the worst happens.

    What are peoples views on the exam? How did you find it?
    Is the 272 possible to complete within in a months study?

    Cheers,

    Ron

    I did 271 last month and I thought at the time it was really hard, I thought i'd failed, then the score came up and i'd passed comfortably. So i'd say just to keep cool and trust your knowledge no matter how long winded and confusing the questions sometimes seem (a lot of them are like this tbh). Broader rather than deeper knowledge is required I thought.

    I've got my 272 in a couple of weeks and although I havn't passed it yet ;) I don't think it's going to be as hard as 271. A lot of the material in my study guides (CBT nuggets and Sybex) is repeated from the 271 material. I'd say a month is enough (but then, as I said, I havn't passed it yet...)

    Well took the 70-271 today and passed, 700 on the nose which was a bit close in all honesty but a pass is a pass.
    Onto 70-272 now :)
