Passed 70-284

I passed the 70-284 exam today with a score of 820. I used the Sybex book, the Exam Cram book, and the Transcender software. I also built a lab environment using Virtual Server 2005.

I hated the Sybex book but it may be the best book out there for 70-284. The MS Press 70-284 book was written by the same guys that wrote their 70-620 book and I thought their 70-620 book was awful so there was no way I was going to read their 70-284 book. I had read a couple of books by the author of the Sybex 70-284 book and thought they were great so I feel very disappointed in his 70-284 book. Maybe he wrote it on Friday or something. There doesn't seem to be a lot of options for 70-284 study. I bought the MS Press 70-284 book because that is the only way that I know of to get the evaluation edition of Exchange Server 2003 these days. I sure didn't read it though.

Anyway, thanks for listening to my rant. Good luck with your certification endeavors.
