    Hi all,

    Just a quick post to say i passed my 70-271 on Tuesday. It took about 6 weeks of study i think..

    1. 2 weeks to read the book
    2. 2 weeks to make notes
    3. 2 weeks of reading notes, practice questions and transcender tests.

    I thought the transcender tests where brilliant as they highlighted the areas that i really needed to know and the areas where the book had almost zero info.

    I had a support job for about 2 years after uni, for the last 3 years ive been a data analyst so while i was still in an IT related role i was not supporting users day to day so i had forgotten alot!

    I felt the test itself was difficult and had alot of questions where i wasnt 100% sure of the answer, tho i managed to come out with an 899.

    Im now looking to take the 70-272 test just before xmas or possibly just after to achieve my MCDST.

    Following that im planning to take the A+ by about Feb/March time as ive a lot of basic knowledge gaps when it comes to hardware.

    The forum is a great resource for research and motivation!

    Yes, without a doubt. They highlighted some areas where my notes were rubbish and areas the book missed out. Also you can get similar questions in the exam in terms of topics and the wording of questions.

    I should scheduled more time for taking all the transcender practice tests and practice questions and i will do for my next exam.
