    Well, the countdown is on - just booked my 70-272 exam for the end of March, so another 12 days of studying and then it'll be exam time :ohmy

    I registered for Microsoft's second chance (hoping not to need it!) and used the validation code, but nothing appeared on the final payment screen - was it supposed to? As I said, I hope I don't need it, but I've heard too many stories of people not using it?

    Firstly good luck with exam :D

    Nothing showed up for me on the final payment screen or on my emailed receipt. What I would recommend is phoning pro-metric up and confirming the code has been used.

    I actually forgot to enter the code on one of my exams. All you do is cancel and rebook with the code so its not a major issue either way.

    12 days is a lot of time. I'd recommend hitting some exam sims now and working out weak areas so that you can blitz the exam

    Thanks for the info - will check with prometric tomorrow.

    Nearing the end of the studying - I wish I could have booked it before Easter but due to work commitments I can't so it had to be the week after!

    Whenever I book an exam I always wish I had an extra weeks revision so maybe its a positive lol.

    One week won't make a lot of difference in the grand scheme of things. You'll still be on course for the target in ur sig!!!!

    Actually, since the 271, I've taken a month out to chill, spent another month learning about Mind Maps etc. as an aid/method to revise, and only spent about 6 weeks on actually studying, so here's hoping that it pays off.

    With my timetable in my sig - that was the push to be honest, I gave myself that timeframe and have pushed to sit to it - here's hoping :)

    Thanks for the thoughts guys :D

    Just thought I'd add I got 84% in my transcender exam earlier tonight
    Configuring & Troubleshooting Connectivity for Apps (IP stuff and Firewall) and Configuring Application Security (perms, IE security, macro security) were both areas I didn't get OK marks on (ie, not above 80%)

    That's what I was thinking.

    I wanted to give it a couple of days before the actual exam to try some mock exams out - new questions and all that - just in case I needed to reschedule - just got 90% on the next one, so I'm pretty comfortable about taking it on Friday.
