    Hi there!

    I have finished reading 290 and want to take the exam at the end of July. i revise for 2-3 hours a night and all day sat and sunday.

    Is this realistic?

    Also after that i want to have 291 done by december, with the same study time as above.

    To the people who have passed these, am i having a laugh or is it doable?

    Hi and welcome!

    It all depends on your experience. 290 i think will be doable end of july but again it depends on your knowledge before and how much time you devote to studying. 291 might take a little longer - its a very tough exam infact it took me 9 months of studying before i took my exam. If you devote time to your studies i think by the end of the year you can have both exams.

    My own personal opinion, very very very do-able.

    You sound like you have experience already, and with a study plan like that, the cert world is your oyster.

    Providing you have adequate study resources like books and testing software, and especially the home lab, you should get through in a handy enough manner.

    btw - splitting study time across lunch breaks also helps!
