    I took my exam today and got a score of 889! Woot!

    I highly recommend the Authorized Exam Cram by Emmett Dulaney & Michael Harwood. There are parts of every chapter that say "if you can answer the following correctly...skim through the highlights" (paraphrasing). Don't do that! (Unless you're done studying and only using it for review.) Read through the whole book, it's excellent material even if you already know a lot of it. I helped me to get some more in depth coverage of material I was already familiar with. I also highly recommend taking any subject matter in that book which you feel was not covered entirely in depth and taking notes so you can research it later on the net. IMO, it really helps to have a deeper understanding of things before taking the exam.

    I have already posted elsewhere on my impressions of the new "performance-based" questions, so take a look through the forum. However, I will say here that there are only a few of them, so don't feel like your not prepared :)

    Next comes finding employment :) After that, I'm not exactly sure, but I will most likely be pursuing MS certifications. I already have a couple books covering the 70-680 material and it seems a logical evolution of expanding the knowledge I gained in school.

    Well done on the pass.
    Just to add, with the A+ and N+ in the bag, I reckon the 680's a good move. The majority of places use MS. Plus the deployment tools they brought out with Vista and improved with 7 are really good and worth learning about. About half the places I go nowadays are keying up for a move from XP to 7, so 7 skills will be valuable for a while.

    If you could please compare the difficulty level of the simulation-type questions, to that of CCNA?

    I don't see any vendors selling simulation-type practice questions.

    Thanks.
