    Hi All,

    Foolishly booked my 299 exam for this Friday. So far I've used CBT Nuggets (as always) and the MS Press Book. Both very good resources for this exam (if I pass that is!). Decided to book my 299 because I'm sitting 291 an hour after it on the same day . . . . BUT as I've been studying for 291 since Feb, I instantly recognised there is a fair bit of overlap between the 291 and 299 material, namely Certificate Authorities, IPSec, Kerberos and Authentication. Having passed my Security+ I've also found this has come in handy for understanding some of the mentioned 299 concepts too, so I only watched CBT Nuggets once, and went back over 3 or 4 video's I struggled with.

    Cheers

    Jim

    And the results are in . . . . .Failed! 648. I think it was a lot harder than I expected, but I suppose out of 42 questions I only needed another 2 or 3 for 700. I know where I went wrong so will sit it again in 2 weeks. Dam you RRAS! Jim
