Well I passed 293 this morning. It took me the entire 3 hours. I scored a 715. Not a great score, but a pass is a pass. I found it to be almost as challenging as 291. It would be hard for me to breakdown what topics were covered. It seemed to be a pretty good mix.

I used Transcenders, CBT Nuggets, and the Syngress book as my study tools. I also used VMWare setup as three servers for my lab. I am really glad I passed. On to 294. Thanks for everyone's help.

    Congrats on the pass!

    Were you able to setup clustering in a VM environment? I haven't attempted yet, but it looks like most people go the physical server route for labbing clustering...

    Congrats dsimons2001,

    Well done.

    I see with you dude; 70-293 is the second most challenging exam after the 291 exam.

    The score matters not; it's not that easy.

    Good luck on your next exam.

    There was quite a bit of overlap.

    I was able to use VMWare for both NLB and regular clustering. The only difference being I was forced to use a local quorum vs. an external quorum which can be utilize external storage.

    did you have any write ups to configure the clustering you would like to share?

    Just curious, did you read through the whole Syngress book, do the practice questions and everything, or just sorta skim through it?
