    Hi all,

    Not been around for a while due to real life :D

    Oh, and World of Warcraft lol.

    But now heading towards going for my workshop for my MCP. Been through all three books (270, 290 and 291) and there's so much to take it it's mind bending.

    Just wondering what advice anyone can give on how to approach the 270 exam?

    Thanks in advance,

    Fsi

    It is an awesome game - but it still takes your life away. Happened to me too. *shakes fist*

    Hi,
    I just done the 270 exam last week. I used the ms press book and sybex. I would say keep doing the lab work and practice them over and over. I spent alot of time doing the practice exams supplied with the book, which give a reasonable idea of how they word the questions. Don't make the mistake i almost made of thinking the questions would be the same or similar, because most weren't.

    GOOD LUCK!

    Thanks, I'll give those a go. Didn't even know there was a Sybex book lol :) Time to get my head in the books again and fiddle with XP till it breaks.

    Thanks for the replies; oh, and yes just a couple of months to Wrath of the Lich King *yes, I'm sad, I've already booked 4 days off* :)

    I believe you're kidding about you didn't know there was a sybex book right?

    Nope I'm not kidding, been out of the loop a bit :)

    Luckily there's some kind of retake for free thing going on at the moment, so that may help if I flunk it.
