    After taking the test only 14 days ago and failing by 18 points with 682 - I was a little frustrated driving away from the test centre. I only took the exam because I realised I could get it free through DreamSpark/Open Uni so I had to book the test and study for it before 30th June - which at that time was about 6 days away.

    I tried my best, just relied on one book and just missed it!

    The afternoon when I came back from the first exam I stepped up my game. Ordered Don Poulton's book, downloaded loads of practice exams, set up a virtual lab and Server 2008 environment and generally locked myself away in my front room for 14 hours a day playing and messing around with every single feature I could think of.

    The work paid off as the nervousness and partial guesswork of the last exam were completely gone. I whizzed through the exam. I had 50 questions and I think I marked 2 for review. Of those 2, there was 1 that I was about 50% certain on, and the other was about 90%.

    The long wait between pressing "end exam" and getting my result was still difficult but nowhere near as bad as last time, as I felt that I had passed it by a long way. I knew it wasn't going to be a borderline thing. It was awesome having that confidence. However I was surprised when I got 1000! I thought the 50% question was going to stump me and I thought I was perhaps being a little too confident with everything else.

    Feel so great now it's unbelievable. I'm going to run up the shop for a few celebratory cans before cracking on with 70-620 exam work (booked it for a months time). I'm going to do that as my elective for the MCSA. I know I already have the MCDST - but my boss has offered to pay for me to sit the Vista exam as we're currently running with that in work - so I'm not one to turn down a free exam.

    Thanks to all for your support in the other thread.
