    Hi All,

    Been studying 70-293 after passing 291 in July and had a brain wave to study for the ICND1 exam at the same time. Cut a long story short felt like I was gonna go into meltdown studying too different technologies at once!

    Dropped ICND1 until maybe next year to focus on my MS stuff and my home lab.

    70-293 booked for end of September. I doubt I'll ever study for more than 1 exam at a time now unless I fail an exam, then I start my new stuff while going back over the failed stuff to maintain my momentum but also to keep me from getting bored of going over the same material.

    Has anyone else found this?

    James

    Yup, got that with my Uni stuff versus studying IT stuffy :)

    So as you know, the IT stuff got put on to the back burner whilst I finish course x

    I'll let you know how my brain goes, switching from essays to technical stuff (and then back again in February!)

    Mate, never had that issue before.

    But there again, I have never studied for more than one exam at a time.

    When going for the MCSE/MCITP: EA it was one exam at a time. However lately I've been studying for alot of things all at once. At the minute the NVQ & LCGI, the Exchange 2010 beta, have also decided to go for the SCVMM exam (already sign up for a couple of discounted vouchers, hope I get them).

    I'm kinda hoping for an easier year next year :)
