    Just wondering if anyone has done the class based course for this and did you find it helpful? I do have the MS Press book but I'm finding it really hard going.

    Yes, I did a MOC (Microsoft Official Course) for the 291 at a local college. It was handy to get me into a regime of hard studying, but it was no were near enough by itself. Lots of hands on server experience is essential in my opinion and a decent setup to practice on. Also additional study material would also be a good idea. I used the Sybex book, Learnkey video training and Transcender mock exams.

    It doesn't have a 70% failure rate for no reason. :) Good luck btw.

    This course for me was good to do, I don't think I'm up to exam pass mark yet but not far off.
    I did this course in early November!

    I wouldn't have passed the exam just by doing the course.

    Not really expecting to pass the exam just using the course. I really want to do it to get a helping hand with learning the material. I've got through the first few chapters of the MS Press book and it just ends up making my head hurt.

    I haven't done this course but I have done other courses where I'd to a self-study and then take a course. It let me take in the material a different way, so topics I didn't get initially were strengthened and topics I knew were reinforced. Point is I didn't replace the books but used each method to balance each other.
