    Hi All,

    Had a conversation with my boss last week and he "advised" that if I want my acquisition of the MCSE certification to influence my bonus in April, I complete it before December when our End of year appraisals get finalised.

    To that end 70-293 booked for Wed 9th of Sept. Feeling pretty confident about this one as I've sat the official MS course, read the blue book you get (2278B) and have been going over and over certificates, IPSec and RRAS on my home lab.

    I passed 291 and 299 in this year too so I'm going over a lot of old ground with those two particularly certificates.

    Wish me luck,

    Jim

    PS 3 exams to go until MCSE: Security 8)

    I have heard several times that the 293 is similar to the 291 and it sounds like you have prepped well. GL with it matey. :)

    Good luck mate :)

    I've heard that the 70-293 was like the 70-218, an easier version of the 216 (which was the 2000 version of the 291).

    So when you pass this one, you'll have just 1 or 2 left to achieve the MCSE then? Perfectly doable I say, good luck and get that raise!

    Well the end is near, booked for 12:30 tomorrow. Think I'm ready but thought that for 291 and that didn't turn out too well the 1st time around . . . .:eek:

    Brushed up on my CA's, wireless access points, clustering and IPSec. Hope its enough :blink

    Its OK, we don'#t need to see his papers . . . move along ha ha (Stormtrooper!)

    Ah hope so mate, its more design this one ain't it so not sure what to expect other than 6 pages of writting per question no doubt. If you live close enough you can lend my lab if you want mate, won't be using it until Jan most likely :cry: (copying craigie's study plan? who said that!)

    Fingers crossed but more than a few have said that . . . . and also that 294 was easier again in their HO!

    PASSED!!! Took me 10 minutes and scored 2000 out of 1000 and I don't work in IT. . . . ha ha sorry taking the P there :lol:

    Passed with 763! So cut it close but as we all know pass is a pass. Really happy even though its hardly a top score :D I had feared a repeat of the 291 nightmare but IMO I agree with a lot of others that if you pass 291 you can pass 293.

    2 1/2 hours long with 50 Questions and 4 or 5 sims I think. All in all a hard exam I thought but I'm finding more and more overlap from study for previous exams.

    Rather than start a new thread I just wanted to ask our MCSE's: Would you go for 294 or 298 next if you were me?
