Just got back from the testing center I passed, did well in everything but disaster recovery... Didn't study that subject real well and got about 10 questions out of 45 on it... Had 4 sims... all were pretty easy, I believed I nailed all of those.

Study methods.

I used Exam Cram 2 and CBT Nuggets. Only took like one practice exam before it.

Onto 291 to complete my MCSA.

    Don't tell co-workers your going for a Cert that they don't have. They may think your trying to take their job.

    Hey there,

    I sensed a high level of confidence in your posting, so if you wouldn't mind me asking how long did you study? Also, in your opinion how much of the 290 material was part of the 270 objectives?

    I've not been a Windows admin, but IMHO since MS has done such a nice job of making 03 server much like XP..it doesn't seem like too much study time is required to obtain ones MCSA.

    I agree with this post. From what one of the teachers at my school told me, the 290 and 270 are very simular. they even combined the 290/270 classes into one... and flipping through the 70-290 book i picked up today (the microsoft training kit), that seems to be very true. hopefully it won't take too long to knock out.
    Fantastic. The project manager is inspired.

    Congrats! I passed 70-290 the day before, and I also have just 70-291 to go for my MCSA.

    I think I had 3 or 4 Sim questions as well. That's the first time I saw a Sim question (I don't remember any on 70-270). They're pretty fun :) I just felt that I might be doing to much (more that the question asked for). I'm not sure if that's possible, or scores against you, but I tried to keep my actions within the scope of the questions.
