I'm so glad that ones done. Not an easy exam. Plenty of nice easy questions mixed in, but some real unpleasent ones where 2 answers look equally correct. Came out with 778. Not all that happy with my score as I wanted to do better after what went down with my N+, but a pass is a pass I suppose.

For those interested (I dunno why you would be given my lower score) I used Darriel Gibson's book, his practice test questions, boson practice tests and I made my own flash cards with ankidroid for android.

Now on to MCSA Server 2012! The study roller coaster never stops anything!

    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    How long did you study? did you take plenty of exams while studying from the book? or did you finish the book and start it taking boson practice tests?

    Also, which practice did you choose from Boson Practice test?

    thx,

    I studied for 3 and a half months. I only did the practice questions at the end of my books chapters while I read from it, no exams until I finished it fully. Once I finished the book I purchased both Gibson's and Boson practice tests. With boson I worked my way through practice tests A to C. After going through them all I focused only on random exams. Only in study mode though, exam mode is stupid in my opinion, as you cannot see the answers to questions even after you complete the test.

    I did skim through the book again during all this and made flash cards for things I was still weak on. Looking back now I realise I wasn't thorough enough as there were some topics in the exam I was still uncertain on which lowered my overall score.
