    I have booked my exam, now to study!! I have finished the "Learn of your own pace" part of the MS book, and have my Vmware lab all set up.

    Now I need to do the "prepare for the exam" part, most of which is not new to me, I am on server 2000 and 2003 every day at work.

    My weak points are IIS, SUS/WSUS and performance monitoring, but I expect to drill them into my brain in the next few weeks.

    I booked with 2nd shot so it's not the end of the world if I fail. I got 60% in my first transcender exam today.

    Best of luck Steve - that's a wise choice booking the exam for a Saturday. As long as you're not suffering from a Friday night hangover and you've put the study I'm sure you'll breeze through it. :D

    Well I have now moved it to Oct 18, since I have to be out of the country with little chance of studying from Oct 2-8.


    Madskillz - Yeah, Saturday exams rock!!! It's much more relaxed than a weekday for me. I have only found a fe places in London that do them on Saturdays.
