    Hi All,

    after a good 6 or 7 months off the cert trail I'm back! Passed 70-401 today with 800 something. Official course (through QA) and the book that comes with it was all I needed to pass this one. I wasn't 100% that this would be enough but luckily for me it was :) I decided to give it a try seeing that second shot is on.

    Who knows, I might even finish my MCSE at this rate...... :biggrin

    Jim

    Now is it just me or, in general, are the MCTS exams a lot easier than the old school MCP exams????

    Oh and me and Craigie in competition? Course not, he's a cert master compared to me! ha ha

    Hmmmm, a combination of chilling and 70-294 revision I think mate. Hopefully I can get back on a roll like last year but I'm not holding my breath.......

    How about VMM (70-403) or MDOP (70-656) to go along with the Hyper-V or SCCM exams (you get more titles doing them as well).

    Thanks very much Simon. I've been so into work lately I feel quite out of touch with exams and certs.

    Nice one Jim. I have to agree with you - I found the MCTS exams that I've taken to be much easier than any that I took for MCSA:Security.

    ha ha glad I wasn't the only one who found the MCSA:Sec hard work! Its probably fairer of me to say "don't you find the questions for MCTS exams are better written than the older MCP exams" :biggrin

    Nice to see you on here again Pedro

    Hey Jim, studies coming on okay currently studying for exam 70-293 and hoping to sit exam in next few weeks. Fingers crossed as there is lots of cross over with exam 70-291:)
