    Hello all,

    I intend to write 70-290 soon, one step closer to my MCSA/MCSE. I've checked out the excellent 70-290 review by zimbo, and checked out posts in the forums here.

    I've gone through Microsoft's exam information, and I'm checking out the Partners website now for anything it might have regarding 70-290. If any forummers have any study suggestions or preparation ideas for the exam that would be great ;)

    Thanks,

    Spice_Weasel

    You might want to consider at least downloading Transcenders demo (usually about 10 questions) if not pay for the whole package. I have found them to be invaluable in preparing for M$oft exams. They not only help you to identify any possible weak areas but they also help prepare you for the tricky way that the questions can be worded.

    You can also get a free study guide from Cramsession.

    They're not desperately comprehensive, but worth looking at anyway. You have to register, but it is free.

    Thanks for the help! I'll download all the sample practice questions I can find and check out the MS press titles.

    My job is primarily working on routers, but it is a requirement that all staff work towards their MCSE, hence my studying. I wrote 70-270, and 10 years ago wrote the win95 and NT exams, but haven't worked on MS servers since NT4.0, so I want to be sure and prepare well for the exam.

    Thanks again for the help!
