    Hi guys,

    I'm starting 70-291 within the coming week and wondered if anyone would like to join.

    You can get more details by PMing me.

    [This study group will run until every member who joins (joins within the next 2 weeks) has completed the course material and sat the exam.]

    Cheers :biggrin

    Well, what we'll do is, all join an IRC channel or MSN conversation (any form of communication).

    Get to know each other, our experience and stuff like that to make it a more comfortable enviroment to talk in.

    Then in the day, or whenever you get a chance, do some revision. Then when you get home or whenever you want, arrange to come on IRC or MSN and talk about what we've done and anything we got stuck on, so we can sort it out so we all fully understand it.

    It's basically to support each other and carry out stuff from the learning material but have somewhere where you can talk about it with people doing the same thing as you.

    Sorry for the poor explanation, but you never know how a study group will go.

    Aslong as you have people who are dedicated to learning the course material and want a group to talk about it and help each other, then it's great! :thumbleft

    Even though I have passed the 70-291 exam, I would be happy to support anyone in this group.

    Hit me up on MSN, and if I'm online I will help out/

    Oh I wrote a study guide which can be found here

    I'm learning 290 at the moment but i would love to lurk in an IRC channel and pick up anything i can if nobody would mind?
    obviously 291 is after 290 and i'm guessing things would compliment it

    it'd probably be best to just invade a public server like quakenet

    Same here mate, I actually spent a month and a half on 291, failed then have avoided it since. Decided to get my confidence back getting a few others first before I try again . . . . (gulp!)
