just passed the 290 exam a couple hours ago with a score of 760. This score is waaayyy lower than how I did for the XP test, and directly related to how I felt going into the test. I way overstudied for the 270, but decided to take the 290 already cause I wanted to get it over with and was sick of studying..heh.

Lots of backup, user/group accounts, permissions questions, 5 sims

my #1 tip is read CAREFULLY, and take into consideration the little things M$ adds in the question and add it toyour thought process.

i used CBT nuggets, technotes, this forum, and mS technet

    good job. I found the 70-290 quite tough too. are you going to do the 291 next? I have been studying 291 for the last 3 weeks and its quite a bit harder but a lot more interesting.

    well done indeed. Just passed mine with 775. Agree was hard and some questions I sat there thinking "i have no idea..." I hear that 291 is quite similar?
