    Hi all, just thought I would make my first post to what seems a nice friendly community. Just started my self study MCSE. I am working on exam 70-270 first. I have the Microsoft Press books, and have set up my small network to practice on. Up to chapter 4, but I am guessing this will be the easiest exam. Not really looking forward to a few of the others. Just got to the point in the book where it discuses the TCP/IP protocol suite layers... nasty... But the book is getting back on track with some nice practice stuff.

    Does anyone have any good advice for someone just starting off on the self study route?

    Hi,
    I am basicly doing the same as you, but just about to do the 3rd exam, and the one thing I wished I learnt absolutly, off by heart, with eyes shut is the OSI model. I had a working knowledge of it etc, but you really need a complete indeapth 'dream about it in your sleep' knowledge!

    Hi,
    Not so much for 70-270, but it features strongly in 70-291 / SY0-101 / real life, I think that you need to get a good handle on this ASAP and then add to it with the training, not learn it as part of the training.
    I have the top part of this -
    http://www.thecertificationhub.com/networkplus/the_osi_ref_model.htm
    Printed and stuck up everywhere - in my study, office, toilet, bedroom! , and read it when ever I pass. I just wish I could have done this sooner as it would make everything alot easyer to understand.
