Passed 293 - JUST! (715)

Took and passed 293 on Friday with a score of 715. To be honest I found this exam quite difficult and harder than 291. The main exam focus was PKI and CA which are my weakest areas icon_sad.gif.

Once I complete my MCSE I'm going to come back to this material and relearn it as I'm not happy with this pass.

Wish me luck with 294! 2 months and counting down! :)

Regards,

Luke

    Congrats Luke and good luck with 294! Not sure how much you want to learn about PKI and certificates, but this book is an excellent reference.

    Congrats Luke. icon_thumright.gif

    And I like your plan to come back and revisit the material in the future. That deserves another thumbs-up! icon_thumright.gif

    Many times we learn more from our failures (or a close call like in your case) than our successes.

    LukeQuake. congratulation on the pass. well done.. icon_thumright.gif

    don worry about the score....if MS says the min score is 700, that is it..you pass.. no doubt..keep in mind that this is also one of the difficult tests......we all learn IT stuffs every day from everywhere....and i m so sure tomolo u will know more than today... this is how we love IT, everyday's new. every day we learn.

    I am working on 293 now and trying to take the exam around august....your message is really a good heads up for me... :Dicon_thumright.gif
