    Study. Do the labs. Avoid braindumps. Take a practice exam to see if you're ready. Get a good night's sleep before the exam.

    Best of luck!

    i beg to differ about the MS Press books - i found they didnt contain as much detail as i would have liked - try them with a combination of the ExamCram books.

    it worked for me :D

    I found that the MS press books dont contain everything you need. But there are additional online info links inside the book, so it pays to use the links.
