    hello everyone.. 1st post here but i've been lurking for a while :biggrin

    just thought i would let you know that ive just passed 70-271 with a score of 783 :)

    this was my 1st resit after scoring 687 in december 2007, i found the 2nd time round that it was a lot easier for me to focus on the exam questioning and review my answers better.. wish i'd sat it straight after the 1st fail now

    ive been using the MCDST sybex book alongside the mspress book for 70-270.. ive also used CBT nuggets, which has been amazing.. really focuses on what you need to know!

    so now.. a few drinks tonight and then onwards to 70-272 next week, with a view to sitting that exam mid june!

    i also need to get my 70-270 exam done within the next 3 months, to keep up with the timetable of my training provider. Ive had a 5 day MOAC course already and ive got access to 70-270 measureup testing through my company, but from doing the certification testing ive found that most the questioning seems to be very outdated or irreverent questioning... not at all like the 70-270 course or the 271 exam ive passed.

    how much of a transition do you think there is from the content of the MCDST to the 70-270?

    should i just go for the 70-270 and see what happens??!

    I haven't done 270, althtough I am studying 271 and 272; however, someone will be along soon who should be able to answer.

    Why not introduce yourself in the New Members area?

    Congrats!

    70-270's a step up from the 70-271 and 70-272 exams, as it's part of the MCSA track. Microsoft recommends that you have six months experience administering client OSes in a real-world business domain environment before attempting it... but your training provider probably didn't tell you that.

    Best of luck to you! :)

    hello all.

    cheers for the congrats..

    i soo need to start spending a bit more time on this forum!! its been nice to read through and discover that everyones been really busy with their certs.. nice to see the second shot deal return too :D

    i sat the 70-270 at the end of july and passed with around 800.. ive now got the 70-272 booked for sept 5th! still kinda on track

    ive been testing with the MS Press Readiness Review software that comes with the book for the past week or so. anyones thoughts on this?? im finding the questioning a bit odd.. asking for the small bits of information on tasks rather that the scenario format that you get in the normal exams.

    bit weird really... cos it says its developed by measure up, and i subscribed to their web exams for 270 and found them excellent prep after a while... but this seems a bit pants. any thoughts? should i keep using it?

    after 272, ive a well earned summer holiday and then ive got my 290 moac course booked mid october, with a view to sitting 290 that before the end of the year.. and then 291.

    is it too ambitious to think i can get this done by feb?? ive 3 years good 2nd line working experience around TCP/IP, DNS, DHCP, AD, Terminal Services (Citrix)
