    Right im on the final leg of MCSA - 70-291! The beast of MCSA!

    I got a bit of a time factor with my exam coming in the 1st week of September so its going to be all hell breaking out till then. I got the MS Press book (1st edition) ,the Sybex version, Server 2003 Inside Out, a couple of handouts on things like subnetting and RRAS. If the budget will allow transcenders will come into play (and i hope they will!!)

    So hang tight and look out for the questions cause this one is a biggy! :biggrin

    I'm in the same boat, tackling 70-291 now that I've done 270 and 290. I have to roll up my sleeves and really work hard as I think the 291 will present some challenges.

    Subnetting, dhcp, tcp/ip, routing I fell reasonably prepared with, but Windows DNS I'll need plenty of practice on.

    Good luck zimbo, time to slay the beast!

    Good luck with the rest of the course. Do you think you might be MCSA before you arrive in the UK?
