Passed 70-290 on Sunday :)

Found this website about a week ago and its awesome. This looks like THE place for pursuing certifications. Anyway thought I would share my own recent success at passing the 70-290 this past Sunday with a 871.

To prepare I mostly used the MS training kit book as well as some books on Server 2003. I highly recommend Windows Server 2003 Inside Out by William Stanek. Actually anything by him tends to be pretty good.

The 70-270 is next on my list. Hopefully there is enough overlap with the 70-290 that it won't take me too long to prepare.

I'm looking forward to being a part of this group and hope to share as much knowledge and encouragement as I gain.

    Congrats on the pass, and good luck on 70-270. I think you'll be fine, as long as you give yourself a little bit of time to read up on the topics the test covers, but a lot of it will be familiar. (Don't forget to nail down all things RIS.) Let us know how it goes.
