    Well I passed 70-294 today which means I've now finally achieved my goal of updating my W2K MCSE to W2K3. I meant to do it ages ago when I could have just sat the two upgrade exams but apathy got the better of me. In some ways its probably been a better learning experience and forced me to get a deeper understanding rather than just skim the surface.

    The 70-294 was an interesting experience, not because of the exam itself which was pretty much what I expected, but rather because the exam crashed twice, the second time on the last question. Didn't exactly help my exam karma but not as bad as my 70-240 one shot upgrade exam experience a few years ago. The fire alarm went off mid exam and the test centre was on the top floor of a tower block. When we eventually got let back into the building we had 40 minutes less to do the exam and I was gasping for breath from climbing 25 floors.

    It appears the road to MS certification is paved with obstacles; not all of them academic...:blink

    Heh, interesting "challenges" indeed. I think I've had just 1 exam crash in my life... but it too crashed twice in the same sitting.

    Congrats on the pass, time for a refreshing drink or something =)

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too. To be honest I think by the time you've passed 290,291 and 293 then there's not that much new in 294 and I certainly found 294 easier to revise for than 293 simply because I like AD and hate certificates!

    Here here, I'm repping you for that! Thanks mate, not long till I'll be in your MCSE club hopefully :D Actually can't wait to get 293 out of the way so I can study for 294. Kinda gutted I have to do 298 security design instead of 297 AD design but never mind . . . .
