    Hi All,

    After my recent stint of no exams (due to the new Systems Admin job) I've gone and done something quite stupid/bold.

    70-290 - Booked in for 02/12/2009
    70-291 - Booked in for 08/12/2009

    Time to study like a mad-man with the aim of becoming MCSA before the year's out!

    Wish me luck. :blink

    *runs away screaming*

    Do you have the experience to back the MCSA up?

    Have I been away so long that you guys have forgotten?!

    Yes, I have the experience! I've been doing server work for a good two-three years, and am currently in a systems admin role where sole responsibility of the network lies with me!

    Sheesh. :p

    I studied the 290 cover to cover a couple of months back in preparation for the exam. This plus the purchase of CBT Nuggets for 290 and 291, plus my CCNA, plus my current role.

    I think I'm covered.

    Just need to refresh.

    Yeah, I agree. Been bogged down with lots of conferences and training days due to the new position. More managerial that technical at the moment. Had a lot on my plate.

    I'm a FAST Approved Software Manager and a FAST Approved Software Auditor now though, if they count? :p lol

    Thanks matey :)

    I've just been going through some readiness review questions and they're *touch wood* not bad at all.

    ...Although admittedly I'm more concerned about 291 than 290.
