    ...with a score of 894.

    I set myself a 10 week time schedule for this exam, from picking up the MS Press book to taking the exam, and I managed to stick to that.. just! I have been putting in 2-3 hours a night and 4-5 hours on Saturday and Sunday so it's been a tough time, but all worth it for sure.

    I am happy with the score but a little surprized that my weakest area was DNS! I thought that one going to be one of my strongest areas due to completing the 70-291 earlier in the year which covered quite a bit of DNS. I think because I felt more comfortable with that topic, I perhaps let it slide a little when re-studying it all. Lesson learnt.

    I used the 70-640 MS Press book, CBT Nuggets, a lot of TechNet and the Measure Up test prep that come with the book. I also spent a lot of time in my home lab which was essential on gaining a better understanding of the different topics, especially AD CS, AD FS, AD RMS and AD LDS, none of which I have had much experience with in the past.

    On that note I'm off for lunch and a well deserved beer! 8)
