    Hi All

    I have been looking on here a bit recently with my 70-290 coming for advise

    I took this yesterday morning and passed with a 746 on my first attempt

    I thought i would come on here and share my experience and advise on this exam

    I revised just through the MOC, Instructure led 5 day course and any practice exams i could find.

    My advise is:

    * Learn your AD User and computer accounts inside out
    * Group Policy
    * Physical and Logical Drives
    * Disaster Recovery
    * NTFS Permissions

    I felt the Simulations were pretty easy - just dont forget you can reset the question.

    So if you dont know it - have a play around and then reset and do it pro.

    The questions werent too bad - As with most MS Exams I found that i could eliminate two of the optiosn straight away - and with most re-reading and re-re-re-reading the question helped eliminate the other

    Hope this helps anyone in the same boat as i was in on Sunday night at 11PM

    Congratulations!!!

    Can you tell us what you know about disaster recovery?

    I am wondering if things have changed since W2K. Disaster recovery was always a bit hit and miss for my liking.

    Thanks all - i am a happy BuNNy :eek:

    As for disaster Recovery - I was mainly tested on what sort of restore to perform:

    Authorative, Non authorative etc

    Also back methods such as Incremental and Differential

    i seem to remember having 2 questions with one being Differential abnd one being Incremental

    Thanks again for all the Congrats!

    Got my 70-291 revision starting in Jan

    Maybe squeeze in the Network +

    anyone got experiences of this exam?
    Is it possible to learn from a book in a month?

    Pop over to the Network+ forum, mate. We have a person who's recently passed and I believe that there are posts in that thread that answer your questions.

    Doesn't sound like things have changed then. Thanks for the feedback.

    In the real world disaster recovery can be a real pain. Have you tried recovering from a test disaster?
