    Congrats!
    Is there any reason you did the 291 before the 290? I'm just curious as to whether that's a common strategy.

    Nope - that's pretty much the reverse of how everyone else does it. :D

    Congrats on the pass!

    How much did you score?
    And how many questions were there in the exam?
    What number of simulations did you encounter?

    Thanks..

    Well done on the 291. You will find 290 relatively easy in comparison. 8)

    My Company paid for me to do the class room course for 291 which I think is M2277
    I've tried to book the 290 course but it's been cancelled by the vendor twice!
    M2277 class room course, Microsoft Press Book which has a 6month free trial of the server software,
    Exam cram for 291 & Mike Meyers Passport book.

    I used the exam sims from these books and also had help from the guy's at work, having unrestricted access the live DNS & DHCP servers helped as well. We have a number of remote sites each with DC's and secondry DNS servers just like in some of the exam sim questions and that really helped.

    While taking the exam the exam server crashed :eek: (happend to me on last exam also :ohmy) I couldn't get the exam sim qustions to work after that and ended up scoring 821 which was more than enough. I think it was 49 questions in all with 2 sims.

    I'm trying book a class room for M2274 but I have to book it through QA-IQ and I'm not keen on going to London so I'll have to wait till a bit later this year. I've already got my 290 books so I'll make at start Monday!
