    My head is offically spinning. What an exam, 50 questions including 5 sims! Knocked it out in just under 2 hours. It was a seriously hard exam, two questions, I had absolutely no idea on and they where definatley not covered in the MS Press Book or CBT Nuggets!

    In seemed that every other question was a page long with the usually MS 'Jack and Jill went up the hill, Jack fell down and broke the DNS Server and Jill wanted to use RRAS to get back up the hill using the most secure authentication method'.

    Think I saw my first offical brain dumper in a Prometric exam, some guy who was bloody annoying was sitting next to me, not only was he in after me, he was coughing phlem and constantly tapping his foot, then he left after 30 mins!

    Going to deploy the cakes at work, hit the gym tonight and then getting hammered tomorrow night!

    Oh I passed with a respectable 836. Watch this space for a Study Guide :D

    Cool congrats... I have to say that I've completed a couple of MS exams in 1/2 hours and passed - but then again I've sat a couple of MS exams took all the time there was and failed :rolleyes: Go figure...

    Good Job Craigie, well done that man!

    On the subject of fast finishers (insert your own joke here), when I took my 70-290 last month someone who started an exam same time as me walked out again (and I can only presume he was finished) when I was only on question 6!!!!!


    anyway, good work fella :biggrin

    :twisted:well, there is also a possibility that the fellow failed the first more than 30% of the questions (or a few questions proportional to those he was passing) and got convinved that he/she cannot make the pass mark and prefers not to waste own time. some of my colleagues have abandoned exams uncompleted.

    If you don't answer the questions, you are certain to fail. Worst case, why not just answer C for everything? :D

    You can almost always eliminate one (or more!) of the wrong answers... some chance is better than no chance.

    Congrats on the pass mate :)

    As to the other guy, who knows.. he could have been a dumper, he almost certainly wasn't taking the same exam.. he may have given up. Don't fret over it.

    Assume makes an ass out of u and me.

    congrats on the pass, not sure about the quick guy, I tend to go for exams earlier in the day so at least i'll have a good half an hour or so without anybody else coughing and spluttering next to me.

    Well done, you'll very soon get your MCSE!
