    So I just passed 271 this morning with a good score (866), and I'm already set up to start studying for the 272, get this thing over with and start applying for jobs and gain some real-world experience. It's a relief to see that I'm making progress and that I'm able to learn this stuff without any previous IT experience (apart from the slightly more than average knowledge of Windows).

    When I passed the exam I felt good but I also felt like there is still a long way until the finish line. I also felt that for the past 3 months I've been studying to pass an exam, and not exactly to *really* learn all this stuff. Hopefully this feeling of unease will calm down after I get a job. It's going to be really hard couse in the North East things are preaty bad in terms of IT jobs, well it's been like that everywhere...So all we have to do is carry on learning as much as one can and be positive.

    I don't have any special advice to give to people who are studying for the 271. I used the sybex book and CBT but I'm a visual learner so CBT was the one who did it for me.

    I would like to thank you for all your patience and guidance during these last few months. Certforums will always be the coolest forum on the planet!

    Enough talk, now let's nail that 272!!!

    Sounds like a few beers are in order. :D

    I'm sure once you start using the skills you have learnt and getting paid for it you'll feel much better.

    Congrats on the pass :)
