    Well I am due to sit this one tomorrow morning. It's about time I finish up my MCSA, I already have one year experience as a Network Admin, dealing with AD, DHCP, DNS, File servers, disaster recovery, etc... I've pretty much implemented and used all of these technologies. I also have a home lab running on ESXi 4 so that helps with the work as well, it kind of became my POC/Test environment since I don't have that at the office.

    Wish me luck, the 291 will be in the coming months!

    So I passed the exam... I didn't find it very difficult, then again I didn't study much, couldn't get into it, I foun it really dull comapred to the 291, anyways I didn't get a great score, only 756 but this was all based on experience so I am glad that it worke out in the end...

    The 291 is next, where I am definitely going to study for it.

    Thanks everyone! I am on chapter two of the 291 book, I have to admit that it is much more interesting but also a lot more detailed. I think one of the reason why people find this exam to be hard is because the level of detail in every topic...
