The Beast is dead

Just passed the Beast, it was easier than i thought.

I think it is my CCNA study last year that made it so more easy for me.

I used following :

1. TestOut : really great, the guy is maybe a little boring, but he explains the things in such a great way. 9/10

2. MsPress 070-291: The best book in the series. In-dept coverage of all topics. The only minus here is the fact that there practice exercices requests two internet connections. 8/10

3. CBT nuggets 70-291: The guys explains things really in depth, and give good real-world experience tips, but the problem here is you got to be really focussed to follow him. 8/10

4. VmWare: Here is where i spent the most of my study time. Drawing out all kind of scenarios. Setting up DSN in all possible ways. Creating vpn's. Setting up IPsec. 10/10

Now, a week of rest and then attacking 293.

    I agree that the guy on TestOut explains the topics very well. I especially love how he draws out his explanation....very easy to understand.
