    Been a bit swamped at work lately so revisions kinda been on the job but quite confident especially as my exposure to server 03 has been constant since getting my first IT job.

    Got a fancy dress murder mystery dinner party for a friends birthday so I'll pick up the revision on sunday then got the monday off to cram so I'll update on Tuesday.

    Had a few passes on this one recently on the forum. Hopefully I'll be joining the ranks of those that have passed soon:biggrin

    Good luck with the exam :)

    I played a murder victim at a mystery weekend once, it sucked because I had about 4 pints before I was 'killed' and it took the group nearly 40 minutes to find me and I was bustin for a pee :D

    I was beginning to think someone should have killed me as I was in dire pain :cry:

    Good luck, I was supposed to do this exam like 6 months ago. I just never had the time to sit down and really cram for it. I should just stop procrastinating and just go for it.

    Good luck to you! I'm going to take my ICND1 exam next week, but then I'm planning on my 70-290 a week or so after that. I've been putting it off since '05, so I figured since I was off of school until August I'd knock out some of those certs I've been putting off.

    I wish you the best of luck!

    Passed:biggrin

    Got a whopping 957 nearly fell out of my chair!!!!:eek: Thought I'd completely mashed some of the sims
    I do have a habit of overkill when it comes to revision though

    Been reading for this one since before I even got an IT job so it's nice to finally knock it out. Didnt find the material on the exam too hard but some of the sims were confusing. I'm lucky that I've been using server 03 nearly every day for 6 months at work but I imagine the exam would have been very difficult if i wasnt as exposed to the technology.

    Materials used were MS Press books the most recent and an older one that had way more command line (the preferred method at my work place) Only ran throught the MS practice tests a few times. They kinda suck

    Sybex - Very good for reinforcing the practical and excellent materials on the CD with the book

    Didnt buy transcender this time

    On the job

    Over 9 months study!!!

    Now thats out of the way I guess its on to the 291 then (if they ever release materials) the 624. Or maybe even do the network+ and combine it with my A+ as an elective.

    How useful will the network+ be to me at this stage I guess is the important question.

    Now for the hard bit - I've got the Three Peaks Challenge this weekend

    Cheers guys

    I know I dont contribute much to the site in terms of advice or debate especially now I'm consumed with work (more of a lurker but visit every lunch break) but really couldn't of got this far had I not found you:wub

    Its been a couple of years since I stumbled on this place while studying for A+ and I'm glad I did. One of the most valuable resources I could have found.
