    Evening all!

    A week on friday (23rd of this month) i am due to sit both 70-271 and 70-272 on the same day... this kinda happened by mistake but i see it as a good way to get it "over and done with". I did the DST role for 3 years and have kinda moved away a little over the last 6 months but want the qualification (in part to put towards the MCSA and eventually MCSE)

    Not really sure why i am posting this as i have no plans to change the exams...just looking for thoughts really!

    On a related issue, does anybody know whether prometrics allow for second shot vouchers to be registered after booking but before the exam? i wasnt aware of the offer... :rolleyes:

    good luck, there's nothing wrong with doing both on the same day.

    I did both A+ exams on the same day.

    As for second shot I think you register with MS and do it from there you have to do it before the first take from what I understand.

    Im reasonably confident pending the revision i will be completing over the coming days...just a little nervous but i always say if i'm not nervous it's because i dont care -so its a good thing!

    I asked the test centre and they said probably not but gave me a number for prometric to call tomorrow...i already have the voucher number...(just need to get a second one!)

    No, you're not mad :) I've done a couple of exams on the same day (ok passed 1, failed one - but they were higher exams).

    If you have a second shot voucher, you will have to ring up prometric directly, get one of people there to cancel your exam and then get them to re-book the exam with the second shot voucher. Same thing happened to me.

    Good luck with your exams :)

    There's at least some overlap with regards to the 271 and 272.

    And no, you're not mad.

    At A-Level and GCSE level there were times when we had between two and five exams on the same day!

    Good times....
