    Well I scraped through (probably didnt deserve to pass) but 70-291 is now sorted.

    Just wanted to say thanks to those that helped me the past couple of days with clarification.

    Thought I would include a little info on my study method and what I noticed from my exam (no giveaways dont worry).

    Preperation:
    Week One
    ~ CBT Nuggets - Watched these and took notes
    Week Two
    ~ CBT Nuggets - Re-watched to clarify concepts
    ~ Created Virtual Network (Big Thanks to SimonD from the virtual forum) 2 servers and 1 virtual PC
    ~ This allowed me to setup, AD/DHCP (80/20 method)/DNS (Forward/Reverse/Forwarders/Secondary/Stub)/ IPSEC/RRAS (VPN/Dial-in/Routing) & WSUS
    Day before
    I then read a few links that were suggested on another website, and re-read my notes


    Exam Day:
    40 Questions
    First 9 questions were simulations - Thank God, this is the bit I had been practicing on virtual servers
    Remainder were primarily RRAS (My fav section), DNS (not so good on this), WSUS (no problems), then a couple on IPSEC, Security Templates & DNS

    WSUS had a few more questions that I was expecting, but it was WSUS, as oppposed to SUS which I was pleased about.


    If you are going to focus on any areas make sure you know RRAS & DNS. I am now going back through the DNS topic because it was clearly highlighted to have been my weakest area.


    Anyway good luck to those who are taking it shortly.

    Thanks All!

    Trogdor, I was going to get one, but im a very slow reader when its in book format (hence why I just read the web). I would need a month to read a book, and I just wanted to get it done to be honest because I need to take my CCNA Voice exam in 4 weeks.

    Anyway the big question now is, do I take my elective in Exchange and get my MCSA:Messaging or do I take the AD route? Both would be handy to know, I quite like the thought of understanding AD a lot more, but one exchange module and I have MCSA:Messaging.

    Any thoughts?
