this link puts this post in context



as you can see by visiting the above link, it's been over a year since I last attempted this test, I haven't been studying for a whole year just got a little side tracked, passed security+ in the meantime icon_wink.gif


I PASSED TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

been studying since like Jan/Feb and really hardcore for the past two months

got a 780....and yes i'm proud of it!!! lol

the materials I used were:

official MS course over two years ago...

recently got an online subscription to cbtnuggets, love em
ms press
self test
vmware with a virtual lab
books24x7 online IT library
many free demo tests from LEGIT companys ( I put the name in this forum and preview, if it gets blocked I don't use it)

random help files, white papers and websites, google, info.com and other search engines

yes, I used alot of resources but I know and understand what I was tested on and didn't just pass a test, even though my score isn't the highest, i'm very pleased

my test consisted of 46 questions with 3 sims dealing with dns, creating users, and rras

the bulk of my test was WSUS and RRAS, with the remaining questions dealing with dns, dhcp, network monitoring and other random things from the objectives, very good test, not easy, not too too hard though, just alot of topics to become familiar with, playing with a lab helped alot, just becoming familiar with the menus and options

thanks to this site, I was encouraged not to give up and to continue to learn the subjects and not just study for a test, I love this place icon_cry.gif
get back to studying!!!

    Awesome work.

    When I took 70-291 there were 46 question, 3 sims (which were exactly what you mentioned), and was mostly related to WSUS, RRAS, and DNS. There were a few questions regarding Network monitoring but the majority were on those subjects.

    WSUS is rather easy and so was RRAS for me. But DNS is hard. Definitely go in there knowing exactly what and when to use, stub zones, conditional forwarders, etc.

    Congrats!!! What other tests have you taking and passed in your path to MCSE?
