    Passed mine last week with a 769!! must be a common score, I have the 70-294 next!
    I found the server exam quite a tricky one, 44 questions with some simulations and some very vague questions as well :blink

    Still 2 down and 5 to go!! or 2 to go? MCSA or MCSE?

    You won't believe this but....that was my score too. Strange, maybe we should all go out and buy a lotto ticket.

    Congrats on the pass mate. :thumbleft

    I can't personally recommend any books specifically for this exam rtid as I haven't got any. I did by a book all about Active Directory which I have just started on, that is to help with the studying rather than being aimed at the exam specifically.

    As for being suitable for novices, I was say a definite no to that. If you have no server experience there will be many brand new concepts to master. Microsoft themselves say the following ...

    . You can find out more from the official 70-290 page here.

    You would be much better off going for the 70-270 exam before the 290, as the 290 follows on in many of it's concepts and principles from the 270 exam.
