Well, I finally was able to get back to the testing center (without car problems this time) although I was a little nervous as the testing engine had problems and it appeared it was thinking that I was already currently taking the exam when in fact I had just arrived. Worked out the issues and was able to start the exam...

I passed the exam with a much higher score than I thought as I thought this would be the tougher exam out of the 2. I guess experience really does help :)

Anyway, here's what I recommend you brush up on before taking the exam:
- Office (Toolbars, Macros settings, Templates, Repairing corrupt Office Installations or missing files)
- Outlook and Outlook Express (How to import and export files, .pst, .dbx, setting up email accounts)
- Remote Desktop (How to enable it, troubleshoot it, not too much to know here as it's pretty basic)
- Windows Firewall and Security Center (Know the name of the logfile, how to configure Windows Firewall and most importantly how to configure it for Remote Desktop)
- Internet Explorer (Pretty Much know the Internet Options page good)
- Troubleshooting Virus Protection (Again pretty basic... Just make sure defs are up to date)
- DNS (Know when you are having a DNS issue)
- USB devices and IRDA (again, not much to be said as it's pretty obvious how to troubleshoot)

Pretty straight forward exam if you know the material. The questions are not super hard and will be obvious if you know the material.
