    I sat and passed 291 today :biggrin

    Score was 807, so not quite top of the class. I would have settled for 700, believe me :blink

    I am absolutely done in! This studying lark can fairly take it out of you.

    There were 40 questions including 3 sims. There seemed to be a lot of configuration type questions. You know the sort, diagram of a network, all the settings, this one can't talk to that one etc.

    I like those sort of problems, they seem a little bit more 'real'.

    Apart from that I don't really remember much. As expected it was primarily DNS and DHCP, with a bit of absolutely everything else in the mix for good measure.

    I used the MS press book, MS official courses 2276 & 2277, Sybex, Syngress, Cramsession, Measureup, and two PC's running server 2003 to do labs on.

    I had more moments of querying whether I had taken any of it all in than I care to recall, so those having a hard time should just stick at it. You may be surprised just what you have learned.

    Haven't posted here for a while, I've had my head down pretty intensely. That doesn't mean that I haven't popped in from time to time, and I thank you all for your input on all topics.

    Cheers :beers2

    Not at all...

    I've been sudying 291 full time for about 8 weeks. By full time I mean Monday-Friday 9 til about 4. I've been treating this as a full time job.

    Having said this, I did do the Learnkey multimedia for 291 before I sat my 290 exam as I thought there was a significant enough crossover to merit that.

    How folks manage to do this kind of stuff in a week is absolutely beyond me :eek:
