    Honestly, you probably only missed it by a question, maybe two. Just brush up on your weak areas and knock it out with your free retake. You shouldn't have problems the next time through.

    (You went into too much detail for the sim. Please edit that.)

    edit:

    According to the exam info we have, it looks like you can have as many as 65 questions: http://techexams.net/microsoft/70-291.shtml

    Also, your sim still has too much information. You're not allowed to mention what you had at all. If you don't change it, a moderator will. It's not a big deal, just FYI.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that the Beast took you for a ride. It looks like you weren't too far from that magic 700 points, so keep studying and I'm sure you'll get it. Sounds like you've got a pretty good idea what your weak areas are, just don't neglect your strengths. There's no worse feeling than going for a retake, acing the things that dragged you down the first time, but failing because you began to forget about the things you knew last time.

    Good luck, we're all keeping our fingers crossed that you pass on the next go-around.

    I had the exact same test experience... 47 questions and 1 sim. To all future 291 takers, I wouldn't be thinking that the 291 has tons of DNS and DHCP anymore... I think they have switched it up.

    You were so close! Second shot wins!

    Tough Break, at least you have the second shot! Good luck on the retake!

    Same here! 47 questions and 1 sim. I also had more IPSec, network monitoring, and RRAS than I was expecting although when I counted it all up I think the distribution of questions was pretty even across the objectives. It just wasn't as heavily weighted toward DNS and DHCP as I expected.

    Stick with it! Just brush up those weak areas a bit and you should be fine the next time around. icon_wink.gif

    Yeah, well--I just took it this morning and more than half of my questions were DNS/DHCP. Interesting to note that the first time I took this exam, I maxed out the "Strong" in the "Implement, manage and Maintain Routing & Remote Access" category. DNS was my weakest area and I got hammered with questions on it.

    And yes, I've failed this bugger twice now. icon_cry.gif I still have my second shot voucher so back to the books...

    I still had 10 or 15 questions on DNS and DHCP. They are the funnest topics to study for me anyways. You are more than likely going to see DNS and DHCP in your environments so I would lab everything up and really try to setup some mock corporate networks.
