    I'm Alex, just passed my 3rd exam yesterday: 70-291. I thought it was a lot more difficult than 70-270 and 70-290, but it's done and dusted. I intend to do the 620 in 3 weeks time and hope to find some info and guidance in the forums.

    :biggrin

    For the 290 I used Examinsight book and I attended a full week course with QAIQ in London (paid for by employer last year). The course was excellent to learn stuff but not very exam-orientated. Still, it was a good experience.

    For the 270 I used a Fast Pass book, plus 4 years experience, also, installing Windows XP on a Linux Eeepc without a cd-rom was a good learning curve: I got all questions about XP installation right! :twisted:

    For the 291 I used the Microsoft self paced book. I was already a bit tired by then and I have less working esperience of DNS and network security, so it was a tougher one to pass.

    I came to the conclusion that some experience of practical work is a lot more valuable than the books, so I'm going to install Vista on a pc at work to practice as my home pc would need some hardware updates and I'm very happy with XP.
