    just want to check im not missing any preparation steps out....

    i have

    studied ms press 271 book twice and created notes

    watched (and still watching) the cbt nuggets for the 271 exam

    trying some of the practice sections from the ms press book

    and also using the practice exam from the cd and transcender

    if there is one thing i would like to practice is troubleshooting tcp/ip and network problems, is there a virtual lab i can use for this?

    what preparation steps do you take and if i have missed anything out i should be doing could i be alerted lol :biggrin

    thanks everyone

    Sounds like your doing all the write things i only used ms press book and trancenders for 70-271
    for the lab i configured a Dual Boot XP pro along with my windows 7 machine

    also transcender is a very good mock exam and so is objective review mode in the review suite and in the back of the book and ignore certification mode its nothing like the real exam and full of errors

    i did it like this 2 hours study a day exept friday and sunday i studied through out the week and took demo tests on saturday and see if i hade improved week by week and when i got around 80% on demo tests and all my objectives were strong i booked the test and passed :)

    Just bite the bullet and take the exam, there is only so much preparation you can do, as long as you know your stuff and are getting good marks in the practice tests (assuming your doing unique presets) then you should be fine. Good luck.

    I agree with AndreK, the only way you really know if your ready is by taking the test and see how it goes

    good luck when it comes :)

    i have a question about the exam, like the certification mode from the cd are there any questions where you have to select options from one box and move them to the other in the correct order? i fear them because you only have to select 1 thing wrong to get it all wrong :(

    i didnt come across any of them i dont think they come up at all but dont take my word for it

    certification mode is full of errors and spelling mistakes and has acually marked answers wrong when they are wright when i have reviewed them typical microsoft releasing something that dont work lol use trancender or other reputable software for demo tests

    You should bite the bullet you can always sit the test again :)
