    Passed the 70-290 and I’m well chuffed! :biggrin

    I had all my sims together (5 if I remember correctly) which was quite challenging! Loads of NTFS questions, its all a blur now to be honest! 8)

    Onto the 70-291, looks like a big jump! :blink

    Yeah, I’ve heard a few classics over the years! :biggrin

    Bit of a strange exam this one for me. I have lots of work lined up over the next few weeks so I thought Id try and get this exam out of the way before it all kicks off. I didn’t want to completely stop studying for a few weeks and then go back to it. To be honest if time wasn’t an issue I would have spent another 2-3 weeks studying before taking the exam.

    I ended up starting the exam at 7:45am! I had to meet a client at 12:30 so I thought starting at 9am (that was my original exam time) could be tight. Sometimes there can be problems getting the exam downloaded etc. Anyways when I asked if I could move the exam back to 8:30am the girl said she would be in the office at 7:30am so I could start anytime after that, result! 8)

    Quite tired now! :gmorning

    I have just picked up the 70-291 MS book, it does look like a big jump from 70-290 but I guess that’s a good thing in some respects as I should pick up some new skills which can only be a good thing! 8)

    Congratulations on the 290 pass :) . I had loads of NTFS questions which was good for me :dry . As for 291 study DNS and RAS and get lots of practise on real servers, this is a very hard exam.:twisted:

    Cheers for the tip, I’ve just installed two servers in my home office\lab\tip to practice on. This exam does look tough and the memory of passing the 70-290 is fading fast! 8)

    Your welcome mate, I passed 291 on my 3rd go, and on all the exams they really wanted you to know DNS and RAS. Good luck 8)
