    Hi all,

    Just passed the 70-271 with 816 so thought i'd come and share what i know about the exam, before i forget !

    I had a good mix of questions, 61 in total.

    I had questions on printers and printer sharing - file and folder sharing - windows firewall - permissions - user rights, the usual what you would expect.

    Learn the task manager ! this got me, especially the performance tab - know what all the details mean and there relevance to system performance - i had about 3 or 4 questions just relating to that.

    Had a couple referring to APIPA addresses but the majority of the questions were about shares and permissions in conjunction with groups and domains.

    The questions were LONG, i'm not used to it - this was my first Microsoft exam. I must have spent most of the 2 hours i had just staring at the words with my brain just 'blank' !!

    Anyway, hope that helps anyone getting ready to take it.

    Got the 70-272 next ! better get back to the books.

    Feels good to get your first MCP! Congrats Quarky! 8) 272 isnt that tough just make sure you remember everything from 271 because ALOT of the information learnt in 271 can be applied in the 272 exam.. Good luck with your quest for MCDST! :biggrin

    Thanks Zimbo, i got a friend who's recently passed. He did his 272 about 2 weeks after the 271 and he passed with 809.

    I was kinda hoping to do the same, maybe not 2 weeks but i would like to do it quickly, before i start to forget what i know now (and i will).

    I've started right now, i've got the 272 Readiness Review questions which come with the Microsoft book,so i'm starting on those until i get my 272 material.

    Thanks guys, i can see myself getting really addicted to these certs !!!
