    857 score, finished with 1hr 45 to spare. Luckily I work with 2003 server and the things this exam covers everyday, so I didn't find it that hard (I found 270 much, much harder). Virtually all the first 15 questions were on Backup & DR and the last 15 on Accounts & GPO. About 5 on Auditing and 8 on Resources and the other few on the other bits and bobs. So it gave me near 30 questions on the areas I feel I'm strongest at.

    Score breakdown, approx. :
    Physical & Logical Devices - 25% (think about 3 questions, so must have got 2 wrong!)
    Users, Computers & Groups - 90%
    Access to Resources - 50%
    Server Environment - 100%
    Disaster Recovery - 100%

    The biggest help I found for this exam was the Transenders. I went through every question on the Transender and made bullet points off the 'learn now' explanations and really revised these.

    Now, onto 291.

    I've just started 291, done chapter one in the MS book which just covers the basics of networking. I think I'll struggle with DNS, though one of the guys I work with said he really struggled with it till he watched the CBT for it.

    Good for you man, I keep on procrastinating and not taking the exam, I guess I am waiting to feel comfortable before I take. I did start working with 2k3 server recently so hoping with in the next few months I'll have 290.
