How much on subnetting?

Does anyone know how much if any of subnetting is covered on the exam? On the skills being measured from MS I guess it falls under:

Implementing, Managing, and Maintaining IP Addressing
Configure TCP/IP addressing on a server computer.

It is def covered in the MS Press book but not really covered in the Test Out material.

    It's not drastic. You should be able to tell if a host or the host's default gateway is set correctly for the network it is on.

    You need to know subnetting, and how to troubleshoot issues with it. You could get basic questions on it , and questions that mix subnetting with DHCP, RRAS, DNS.

    I failed this exam twice. I did well the 2nd time, but I got 50% on the DHCP section, which burnt me with a 679. On the first exam I got 100% on the DHCP section.

    I think the moral of my story is to go in STRONG on everything - subnetting included.

    I hope this helps you. As for me, I am going for number three next Wednesday. I CAN NOT wait to get this one passed!

    Thats what I figured. Have you used a lab in your preparation? Were the DHCP questions more troubleshooting or install/ config or both. Do you currently work as an admin?

    Just took my 291 on Wednesday and I think about 20% of the exam was on subnetting. You definitely need to know how to subnet.

    Yes, I think a lab is key.

    The DHCP questions I had on the 2nd attempt were all troubleshooting. I really don't remenber on the 1st.
