    Passed 70-291 with a score of.. 700/1000 :twisted:

    In by the skin of my teeth, but a pass is a pass I guess :biggrin

    I had 53 questions, 6-7 simulations and a whole heap of IIS and WSUS questions?!

    I had this in my previous attempt at 70-291 with a score of something like 682 (cant remember).

    Just to make sure I wasnt overlooking anything in the 291 material I have, I went through the MS Press Book and TestOut Labsim. MS Press Book has about 2 - 3 pages on IIS and barely scratches the surface (unlike the exam which was asking for command line stuff!) and the same for WSUS (or SUS).

    But hey ho, I passed.

    I advise anyone who takes this exam, seriously take a very indepth look at IIS (especially IIS security, IPSec etc) and WSUS!

    Yet again thanks to everyone at CF whos helped me through my last 3 MS exams, many more to come :biggrin

    I'll also be on CF alot more due to having my life back! Haha.

    Have a good Friday everyone! Enjoy it!

    Great stuff, always makes me smile when I see someone beat 291. I got 700 on 70-270 so know how you feel. I'm glad they have put more labs into this exam by the sounds of it as its often easier to show what you can do than answer the questions IMO. Jim

    Many Congratulations on passing the 70-291, I found that exam extermly tuff and a step up from the 70-290 but very rewarding once you've managed to "tam the beast".
    For all those that are due to take it don't be disheartened by everyone saying its a hard exam I failed it on my first attempt which dented my confidence but I think that was down to lack of Prep.......
    Go and have a pint of 10 to celebrate!! :p

    Congrats on the pass, I know exactly how it feels to tame the beast, got my pass earlier this month. But 53 questions? I only got 48 questions for my 291 exam :). Maybe you should try another Prometric testing centre. I got 1 sim in the entire exam.

    Yeah, I believe WSUS was added to the 70-291 later on. I noticed that the MS Press book didnt have enough on WSUS so I ended up just getting the info from the MS website.

    Congrats on the pass mate. :biggrin
