    and passed with a score of 895 :D

    I'm so chuffed cos I had almost convinced myself I was gonna mess it up.

    Got quite a lot of DNS and Wins stuff with a good helping of IPSEC and RRAS and loads and loads of Group policy stuff.

    I got hit with two sims at the very end after thinking I had gotten off easy and the simulated system was so slow it took 15mins just to answer one of them and 10 mins for the other. I wasn't happy about that but still managed to finish in about 2 hours.

    Congratulations!
    Did you take the exam with Thompson Prometric or with Pearson Vue?
    I have the impression that Prometric does load the graphic elements slower than Vue.
    BTW, the way you use in a simulation is not important, the endresult is.

    Thanks guys, I took the exam with Pearson VUE.

    I done my 70-291 last month on the exact same pc and had no problems with the sims on that one.

    This was about a five second delay from clicking on a container or rightclicking something to the sim actually updating, ie. highlighting the line that I clicked, bringing up the rmb menu or opening a new window. It even took this long to check a radio button. I was getting quite angry but kept my head level cos I knew I couldn't afford to lose it.

    I know what you mean mate, when I took the 70-291 there was a delay when loading up some of the questions. At one moment I almost got up and walked out to find out what was going on as I thought the whole thing had crashed. Then after 5 mins then next question loaded up. :blink
