I passed my 70-271 last friday with a score of 954. I took about 4 days of studying the MSPress book. I went ahead and opened up the MSPress book for the 70-272 and it seems much easier. Has anyone else experienced this? I am looking to pass my 70-272 this Friday and move on to my MCSA. I have a free elective since I already have my A+ and N+. So 3 more tests after this one and I will be on my way. I plan to take the 2003 server stuff so I dont have to retake my MCSA tests soon again. Would getting my MCSE be worth its wild after recieving my MCSA? I dont have any college, basically came right out of highschool and started working for a service provider with tech support and then moved up to Network Operations and dealing with Cisco equipment. I have been out of the field for a couple years and let my CCNA expire and I feel I need to get back into things and Microsoft seems like they are the most recognized by employers.
