Scheduled My Test UPdate:Passed

MishraMishra Member Posts: 2,468 ■■■■□□□□□□
Well I scheduled my 70-291 for this Friday. I haven't really been studying much recently. I need to take a day off from work and Friday was the only date that prometric had recently that I could take. I was going to schedule it for Monday and study the whole weekend.

Due to the second shot being around, I really don't mind giving it a go so early.

Can I really not see any confirmation of my second shot voucher ANYWHERE after I scheduled my test?? I don't see it on the email confirmation, nor on the website.

    Good luck, I just scheduled mine for April 7th. First day that I had off that was open at prometric. I used the second shot voucher as well, but I don't believe you recieve confirmation of anything. Since you're not actually paying with a voucher, it doesn't really apply. You should be good as long as you typed in the voucher number though.

    Good luck!

    Just make sure that if you fail the exam, that you use the same "2nd shot" code you used the first time.

    You can call and have them verify it. When I entered mine, I went back and intentionally entered a wrong one just to see if it would give me an error, which it did. I agree that it is kind of unsettling that they just silently accept it. Good luck on your exam.

    Thanks everyone.

    When "security" is mentioned what do you guys usually see?

    I'm going to study a bit more on network monitor
    I'm guessing IIS security can slip in there
    MBSA which I've ran before but I have no idea what kind of questions they are going to ask for this one so I don't really know what "I should know"
    what is "Implement the principle of least privilege."
    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-291.mspx
    what do I need to know about Kerberos support tools... as security is my weakest subject, I probably should know more about Kerberos in the first place


    Kind of funny because asking what security meant on the 270 was my first post.

    Off the top of my head, security templates, IPSec, MSBA, group policy settings, kerberos, security-related command-line utilities, WSUS, etc.

    Principle of least privilege is just what it sounds like. Don't give someone more privileges than are necessary for the tasks they're doing. If you need someone to manage user accounts, reset passwords, etc., don't make them an administrator, just use delegation to give them the privileges they need to do their job.

    "principle of least privilege" just seems like a weird thing to mention. You learn that lesson with any Microsoft test. And MS usually don't try and teach you good baseline IT morals you kinda figure it out for yourself.

    I don't think you'll get a question asking you about it point-blank. It's likely they'll mix it with a scenario. i.e. so and so needs to be able to do this, what do you need to do in order to allow him to do his job?

    a. delegate authority
    b. add to administrators group
    etc.
    etc.

    I'm sure a lot of people who aren't familiar with the concept would just be like, "Oh, administrators can do that, so I'll add him to that group," without really thinking the question through. It's just something to be aware of.

    Good Luck for Friday Mishra!

    I have mine scheduled for Tuesday next week. I too have the 2nd shot voucher but do NOT intend on using it!!

    From what i gather DNS, SUS, IP addressing, and IPSec are covered a lot on the exam.

    good luck and lets hope you (and all the others who have contributed to this thread) pass!!!!

    I scored a 747 on my test which was below what I wanted.

    I only got ONE sim!!! This was not cool because I enjoy the sims and do well on them due to my lab studies.

    What should you study?

    IPsec
    VPNs
    RRAS
    IP addressing/subnetting
    WSUS
    Network Monitor
    IP Security Monitor
    IPsec policy management

    And last but not least!!!
    DHCP and DNS

    thats right I only got about 10-15 questions on DNS and DHCP out of 47 questions... Most of the questions were from above. Probably why I didn't do so good as I studied hard and have good experience in DNS and DHCP.

    I'm actually going to take my 70-293 next. I have access to books24x7 so I have the Syngress book available to me. I'm probably going to glance at the MSPress book too just because I do enjoy the way they explain things.

    Then after that I will take the 70-284 for my MCSA. I'll take my 70-294 next (this is the one I'm most looking forward to) then 70-297.

    I'll go for the messaging title but I may wait until I get the CCENT and maybe a Linux cert before I get that.

    Congrats Mishra!

    Looks like I still have to study before the test. I scheduled it for wednesday morning and actually I don't feel so confident like the previous ones but I have some pressure over me. I'll try not to depend on the second shot.
