And another bites the dust

Passed this morning with a 810! Nice to finally have that MCSA on the resume. The 298 is next on the list.

I mostly used the MS Press book and CBT Nuggets. Used MeasureUp and Transcenders for practice exams. Also had a couple servers and a client running in VMWare for practice although I didn't use that as much as I probably should have. Last minute brushing up was done with the MCSE in a Nutshell book by Oreilly.

Had one sim and the questions I think were spread pretty evenly across all the topics although there wasn't as much WSUS as I was expecting, maybe 3 or 4 questions.

    Congratulations!!!

    I plan to take the Beast in less then 2 weeks.

    Was the MSPress book sufficient enough for WSUS?

    I noticed the MSPress Server book might do me better for WSUS...

    Thanks in advance.

    For WSUS I just read the MS documentation on it for WSUS 2.0. I had seen a lot of people here say they had a lot of WSUS questions so my strategy was to make that a strong point and basically free points. As it turns out I probably only had 4 or 5 questions on it.

    Congrats...I notice you're from Atlanta. Did you take your 291 at the center on Roswell Rd around 10:30 this morning? I was there for my 70-227 and heard someone else mention that he was taking 291.

    Yep that is where I was! I was supposed to start my test at 10:30 but they didn't get me in until nearly 11 and then there was some sort of a problem with Prometric on the microsoft tests so we had to wait around until they got it fixed. Didn't actually start testing until 11:30.

    Congrats! In my opinion after 291 it is all downhill from there, watch out for 298 though.

    INCONCEIVABLE. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    But not ON the 8th? What kind of superstition is that? icon_lol.gif

    By the way, it may be coincidence, but my birthday is also either before or after May 8th, but not on May 8th. Spooky... :P
