    Hi All,

    Just to let you all know that I took 70-291 this afternoon, and passed with 820! :D

    That officially makes me an MCSA!! :D

    In all honesty I didn't think the exam was all that bad, especially the sims which were particularly simple. Was in and out within two hours.

    Good luck to all those tackling this in the near future!

    Thanks for the congratulations all! :)

    Cheers matey. Ugh, the long slog to MCSE before April. My boss has stated that he wants me qualified before this time and has offered me a substantial pay-rise if I make it (though I may collapse beforehand due to non-stop studying).

    MS Press, CBT Nuggets as per usual. :)

    Congrats on the pass mate. It's a hard exam to do but it's luck of the draw as I failed first time and the exam had loads on WSUS and subnetting and I didn't know WSUS was on the exam and I can't subnet to save my life. The second time no subnetting and I brushed up on WSUS and passed.

    Thanks :)

    Agreed. I reckon I was pretty lucky with my questions. I had only one or two questions on WSUS and only one subnetting question.

    Someone upstairs obviously likes me. :p
