I squeaked by today with a 715! I had 42 questions with 4 sims. I finished the exam fairly quickly (1:45) and felt pretty confident about my answers. I was really suprised i scored so low!

I studied with the Transcender exams, CBT Nuggets videos, and a Microsoft 70-290 book (not sure the name of it right now) that I used for a college class.

Now, its on to "the beast". I'm still on track for my MCSA by August 21!!!!

No studing tomorrow, I'm hittin the links!!! :D

    I know what you mean. I just finished my MCSE last week and over the weekend played my first round of Golf in about 6 months on a nice new course in Southern Oregon. Talk about nice and relaxing.

    Way to go

    Congratulations on the pass, and good luck on "The Beast". Don't worry about the low score, you did pass, and you can always go back and look over the CBT Nuggets for what you didn't feel too confident on. I got scores in the 700's on both 70-290 and 70-291, and I felt kind of bummed that I didn't score higher, with the amount of studying I'd done. Then I remembered: I passed. All of the stuff I may have missed can and will appear on tests in the future, and I am definately planning to at least sit through the CBT videos for each test at least once, before I begin studying for 70-293. (For now though, I'm perfectly content with sitting for the 70-270 in about a week.)

    You'll get a good score on "The Beast", I'm sure you'll study all that much harder, knowing what you know from the horror stories on this forum. Good luck, and, again, congrats on passing 70-290.
