    Cheers all and especially those that gave me a kick up the backside a bit ago to pull my finger out and yes it's so good to get the exam out of the way as I really struggle with it to be honest. Celebratory Pizza tonight with the missus and out on the lash on Saturday with my mates for a baby head wetting session. sweet :biggrin

    Next up is Hyper-V exam as I got one of those free vouchers and have my exam booked late November so hopefully get that done and then ITIL in the new year.

    I didn't use any just the Syngress book (which was very out of date) and Microsoft book as well as buying another server (ML115) to go with my Dell T105 server and a Technet subscription. All in all it was an expensive setup but well worth it as I want to go in the direction of becoming a virtualisation specialist so setup ESXi and Hyper-V.

    Yeah too right. I usually flick through exams and pick off the easy ones first and had 60+ questions and kept thinking right the next one must be subnetting and got to the end and though get in there. Well pleased with the questions and the sim was easy as well. Think I got a lucky break to be honest.

    I only had a single subnetting question on my 291. Fortunately I had really boned up on it, but wasn't really featured.
