Passed 70-285

Scored 820 icon_cheers.gif

My final MS exam (for the time being :D ) and am so glad to have this one conquered!

The exam consisted of 6 case studies / teslets each with 4 - 6 questions lasting from 20 - 30 mins. I found the exam relatively easy, compared to 70-284 anywayz.

The exam covered the whole range of deign topics, co-existance, migration, upgrades and fresh implementations. Also the usual backup and restore through to OWA and GC placements. Also admin and routing group topology design. I had 4 drag and drop questions and the rest were multiple choice.

Gonna take a few weeks off now and then get stuck in to ITIL as I'm seeing a lot of UK companies requiring it.
Up Next : Not sure :o

    Congrats on the pass. I was just wondering what you used to study for this exam. I am planning to take the MCSE messaging route as well.

    Thanks Luke! I started with 70-270 in Aug 05, then 290 March 06 and then about two months between each exam after that. Although with all the recent beta invites over xmas and NY that set me back a bit.

    Congrats on the pass. I was just wondering what you used to study for this exam. I am planning to take the MCSE messaging route as well.

    Thanks for asking, I usually post my study methods. I used CBT Nuggets, all my notes for 70-284, I have a lab at home and work using Virtual Server 2005 and ofcourse Transcender 70-285, my fav testing engine. The nuggets were alright but I don't think the trainer is quite as good as the Server 2003 one, I just find him a bit boring :D

    Thanks, would love to to take the MCA route but the $25k entrance fee is slightly out of my budget icon_lol.gif
