    Cool, congrats and well done being in an area where you:

    1. have a testing centre near you &
    2. where the closest testing centre to you doesn't have a 1 1/2 month wait

    Man you have no idea
    I practically chewed out the prometric guy when I went to my 3 - 4 normal test centers and they were all booked till mid to late march, i've NEVER waited more than 10 days for an exam before, i was pissed, I eventually found one close enough that had a place 3 days later.. went for it (the small advantages to living in the big smoke I guess)

    Its pathetic, the waits were never this long for VUE seats.. I dont know what the big deal is
    Perhaps its the one exam vendor rule, I Guess people had choice when there was two, and even with VUE centers becoming prometrics I guess they need different systems / rooms for each, so cant just have 100 seats for BOTH (perhaps VDI could address this!)

    By the way, let this be a lesson and an example to everyone out there studying for the MCSA/MCSE of how certifications are *supposed* to work. Obviously, Phoenix has the background and the experience to do the job and to do the job well. Passing this exam merely confirms what he already knows, which is the whole point (IMHO) of the certification industry.

    I'll be honest, I get no where near as good marks as I did when I used to sit exams between jobs and such, I did the majority of my cisco and ms certs between roles, and the time I could dedicate to exams really made a difference

    until 2005 I had only failed 1 exam, and never got under 900 on an MS exam), these days I barely scrape through with 750 - 850

    I guess it comes from actually doing the stuff day in day out for years.. it really is all about knowing the MS way to answer, not the real world way, which is the only reason some of us need to revise in the first place

    I long ago got over the whole 'must pass first time and must get hooge marks' kind of vibe, it was nice but impractical when your out the house 12 hours a day, 3 hours of commuting, and torn between so many varied projects that trying to focus on ONE bit of subject matter for weeks is just impractical, I'd advise everyone else not to worry so much either :)
