    Hi All

    If I give you some insight into how I revise for exams, it might help explain what I am looking for. What I do is the following:

    1. Buy Book or Books on the subject
    2. Install software in my home network environment
    3. Read through books and write notes on key areas
    4. Go through examples and add to notes
    5. Revise notes and add to areas I don't know well.
    6. Hopefully pass exam.

    Although this seems quite methodical it does not always work as I seem to miss areas which are key and focus on areas that are not. I have tried to use some notes from Cramsession which seem to be ok but they seem to miss areas, but its a start anyway.

    What I am looking for some links or advice really on how i can find notes or sites which help. However I don't want any Braindump sites or anything like that as in the long run they wont help me.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Gopher

    I'ev always found the books from Examcram to be good for that. Apart from that, maybe the Audio lessons/guides from places like Preplogic.

    I second Examcram books, used one on my 291 in the last few weeks before the exam. Quite concise, refreshes all the stuff in your mind without going too deep on the subject like in the MS press books.

    Looks like the exam cram is down for maintenance at the moment, but the Preplogic looks very help full.

    Thanks to you both

    I got the Examcram book for my 291 from eBay; read the thing and passed the exam and then sold it on eBay again.
