Passed the 296 today, time for a cold one!
Today I passed the 296 to complete my upgrade to MCSE 2003 and found the exam quite a bit easear than the 292. I studied all the transcenders along with the explinations and flash cards and further read pages on certicifate services on technet. I made sure to study how to back up and restore all topics in the objectives listad for the 296 on the Microsoft website. If you studied hard and passed the 292 then the 296 should take half the time to study and easily pass.
