    I passed 271 yesterday (815 score) and will be taking 272 on Tuesday. I used Microsoft's educational exam code (exam code 72-271 instead of 70-271) along with a free re-take voucher which I luckily don't need to use. I'm a college student right now so I'm eligible for the educational exam. Later this Summer I'll be doing EDST 7 upgrade, Apple Certified Associate and hopefully Network+.

    Educational exams are separate exam codes for identical tests, they are available for MCDST and some MCTS exams. It's about half the price of a regular exam.

    Thanks everyone.

    For advice sake I meant to mention the books I used. I used the applicable MS Press book for each exam. Although I didn't read much I definitely used the practice exam software. I swear by practice exams, they get you used to the question styles along with getting a summary of which objectives to restudy.

    And now I passed the 272. Actually scored 876 this time. Interesting because I felt comfortable enough going in, and I had a second shot, but I was unsure what to expect with Office, IE and Outlook Express questions. Ultimately I found that I was able to use common sense and an educated guess to guide me.

    I'm happy now to have a certification to couple with my A+.

    Congrats on the pass and good luck. I am looking to sit both of these before the end of June with the 271 booked for Saturday.
