    good day! i've been lurking on this forum for quite a while now. i just passed 70-271 yesterday and i would like to thank the people who posted the pinned threads as they really helped me a lot in passing it. i scored 816 in the exam.

    i wasn't really expecting to pass the exam as i always got around 60% score on the transcender practice exam despite focusing on the parts that im having a hard time with which made my morale really low. good thing the actual exam was quite a bit easier. i still need to brush up on ntfs permissions and network protocols though.

    the study materials i used are the vtc.com mcdst video lessons, 70-271 ms press book and technet.microsoft.com. the vtc videos are very good as it made me understand the ms press book alot better. i then use the technet website for additional info.

    70-720, you're next. :D

    Congrats!
    Kick back, have a few beers, and enjoy a few well earned days off studying.

    I wish I could. I've got my 270 on Tuesday (and ITIL next Friday :eyecrazy).
    The 270 is, as you have probably already figured out, pretty similar. More of a domain slant, goes a little deeper in some areas, but not a huge step up from the 271. Well, I hope it isn't anyway.

    You wouldn't need the 270 if you have the 682 as you'd be credited with the 680, which is one of the client exams for MCSA.

    @wagnerk thanks ken!

    @soundian - cool! i haven't checked out MCSA on the Microsoft website yet so i'm not really sure which exams to take for it but for now 70-682 and a+/net+ first. :)
