    Don't stress over it too much, you will do fine!

    It's interesting, the general consensus is that the 291 is the more difficult exam. The 290 has more overlap with the 270 exam.

    Well, good luck on both exams!

    You may have that backwards ;) As Megadeth mentioned, generally people think 291 is harder!

    Good luck! Be sure to post how it goes.

    Thanks guys for the words of encouragement. Our customer is really piling pressure on for more of us to have MS certifications, its actually part of their policy to have staff only qualified in the areas required for their level of support. Im already qualified to the desktop level (270) but to touch the servers I have to pass next week............it really is very fickled indeed.

    Ahh well I can only do what I can do, ive studied as hard as I can...but not as much as id like.

    Ill post the scores when i done.

    Hi Pash,

    Congratulations for passing this one and best luck for 290.

    Can you just tell us how much time did you spent making your 291 exam?
    I'm curious, because I'm having my 291 tomorrow.

    Ive been revising for about a month and a half, skimming old notes from bootcamps i did a while back and practicing on my own server lab. Im getting more server exposure now from work, so im thankful for that.

    Goodluck in your exam, let us know how you did.

    I scored 880 on 70-291 exam today.
    Not so complicated as I thought when I saw some guys calling it "the beast".
    Now I'm MCSA.
