Do not underestimate this exam or try to take the "easy way" or you will be met with failure.
Aiming for MCSA: Security and 2003 upgrade.
MCSA/MCSE Self-Paced Training Kit (Exams 70-292 and 70-296)
If so, the chapters you'll need for 70-292 are listed at the beginning of each chapter in the book if yours is the same as mine. I show chapters 4, 8, 9, 10, and 13 in Part 1 and 15-20 in Part 2.
thanks mate! that's exactly what i was looking for! they could have added those chapters at the start of the book to avoid confusion.
btw, for those who have passed, studying just these chapters from this book are enough right no need to look at the other chapters? curious to know how sybex is layed out...
False. Read the whole book through, then brush back over the 292 relevant chapters. There is a fair amount of overlap between 292 and 296 although one big difference is that 292 is DNS heavy while 296 is not. As I said earlier, you will also need supplemental reading material. The MS Press 292/296 book will get you about 70% of the way through the exam which won't be enough to pass. I suggest the O'Reilly Windows Server 2003 DNS book as well as the study notes over at certtutor.net forums. They have one of the best assembled **** sheets for both 292 and 296. In addition there are rumors of vb scripting questions in the pool of questions which the MS Press book does not cover whatsoever. The **** sheets will have you covered should you get those questions.
Seriously, study for these two exams like you were studying for the BAR exam. Take no shortcuts. They are bears. 292 especially.
could i be a pain and ask you to post the direct link to the study notes over at certtutor.net as i'm not having much luck locating it. TIA
Here's the link to the 70-292 study notes:
Here's the link to the 70-296 study notes:
296 is a long way to home because i'm yet to do mcse 2000 first to get to 296? or should i just follow the mcse 2003 stream after finishing off the 292 exam?
No problem, there aren't any secrets in /dropbox/. It's where I usually stage files in the process of helping others.
The AD Component JigSaw puzzle was a freebie in one of the issues of TechNet magazine a year or two ago. It's an awesome poster - definitely suitable for framing (I haven't gotten around to framing mine yet). I don't pay for TechNet magazine. I get it for free just like everyone else I believe. Don't confuse TechNet magazine with the Microsoft TechNet software subscription. They are two different things.
I'll let you in on a little secret: I have two subscriptions to TechNet magazine and therefore have an extra copy of the AD poster in pristine condition at work still folded up. I'm willing to part with it in order to help out a fellow MCP, but you'd have to promise to finish the 292 and 296 exams, and without braindumping.
I think putting EMS questions in the exam is lame for two reasons:
1. Nobody I know uses EMS. And I know a lot of people.
2. It's not covered in the MS Press book.
I feel MS needs to keep their exam objectives within the boundaries of the MS Press books they sell. I don't think it's real fair to the test takers to throw questions into the pool that aren't covered by the book, because then they are failing us in a couple of ways: We fail the exam @ $125US a pop, and we are sold an inadequate MS Press book.
Here's a primer covering all you'll need to know about how it works:
EMS seems about as popular as BSOD debugging with a null modem cable is/was. In today's "we need the server up now!!!" mentality, I can have the server rebuilt/restored quicker than trying to use EMS.
ok i'm gonna take your advice on for 292. i dont have much money and cant afford to buy more books so gonna look in our library for the DNS book you mentioned. it is going to take atleast 2-3 months for me to finish this exam but im familiar with most topics as i've used win2k3 recently a lot for ISA exam. but i could be wrong, there is a whole lot about DNS and AD i may not be aware.
