    Passed the 70-290 yesterday at last with a score of 771.
    Not a brilliant score but a pass is a pass!
    Been at this for six months, just couldn't get motivated. Decided to knuckle down a month ago. Took the exam last week but only got 690.
    Had lots of terminal services questions (my weakness) and 7 sims (which break down the monotony).
    The PC also had a fit after question 21 so I had to restart the test!

    Onto 291 now. Heard it's an easy one...! :D

    Congrats, I am about to do the 290 in two weeks. And like you I can't find the motivation to study but I have to pass this exam on the first try or else I will have to wait a while for the second time around as I am way to busy.

    I think he's joking, 291 is widely known around these parts as "the beast". :)

    Congrats on the pass mate!

    Yes it was meant as a joke. Must have been a bit too subtle.
    I've done the 2276 & 2277 courses and went dizzy with subnetting so not really looking forward to it.
