    Hi Maryloveus,

    Well I spent about 6 weeks or so preparing for the exam. I studied Monday - Friday for about 1 - 2 hrs a night, and then built this up near the exam time to including some weekends and studying for more like 2 - 2.5hrs a night. I used the MS press books, the technet website (as the MS press books miss out some of the information required for the course e.g. configuring VPN) and the Transcender practice exams, where I focused on my weak areas so that I could build up a balanced score where I was passing consistantly on all modules.

    I don't think that any one of the chapters is more important than the others, but having an understanding of where you need to improve your knowledge / skills means you will be able to practice those areas and make all the chapters about the same.

    I hope this helps!
