    Right, I've booked to do my 70-271 and 70-272 for next week. I thought I'd do them on the same day (much like the A+) but is this a recipe for disaster? I'm fairly confident :rolleyes: and consistently get pass marks on the simulation exams but still worry slightly that this is a little on the insane side...

    Oh, and why is the Prometric website so annoyingly slow?

    Personally I wouldn't do them on the same day, as you wont achieve as well as what you could. I guess if you study one at a time you will know what's going to come up instead of getting mixed up about what exam will cover it. Also you can focus on one more and give 100% rather than giving 50% of work into each. Also I find one exam is enough for me. But you never know you might be fine, that's just my personal opinion mate.

    Good luck anyway :biggrin

    Thanks Dave,

    I suppose I should go at it a bit slower but I guess there's always Second Shot if I screw it up....

    Bottled it. Decided to give myself another couple of weeks and booked one for one week and one for the week after.

    Count yourself lucky that you get to bottle it. My local prometric center is so small and I guess swamped with people doing health and safety tests etc that If I want to do the 70-646 and the 70-648 I have to do them on consecutive days and in the too near for my liking future

    I'm bricking it. I'm pretty sure I'll get by and hopefully they'll add some more dates but jeez:blink

    Yeah, I've found that it's getting trickier to book the ideal slots at my local provider too. Hopefully I won't have to reschedule these again and pass them OK.

    Good luck with the exams!

    Just got back from the test centre. Passed! Quite glad to get that one out of the way as found it oddly fiddly. Now going to go for the 70-682 and then probably no further until somebody gives me a job.
