    ...with a score of 875.

    I just had to finish my MCSA 2003 before I could move on to the MCSA 2008, and now I have! 8)

    I adopted a new studying technique for this one as I read post after post about how hard the exam was, 'The Beast' as they call it. I really spent a lot of time in my home lab, playing with every aspect of the material and all the different options and configurations available.

    I also spent some time posting my notes, be it lab notes or theory notes, to my personal blog that I started this year. I found that really helped in two ways; firstly it made sure that I was catching every bit of detail I could, and secondly because I later used my own blog to refresh myself in the days leading up to the exam!

    If you fancy a read or are planning to sit the 70-291 before it expires, it can be found here.

    On that note, its time for a well deserved afternoon beer! :slidedrin

    Cheers guys! 8)

    Lol I know who to ask about the exam ;) I'm planning on taking this exam before it expires just to get the shadow of studying for 2003 off my back.

    Again congratulations

    Thanks guys, I think hearing all the horror stories helped me stay focused and motivated to be honest! Although 875 is a good score, I had a couple of horror moments in the exam for sure!
