Well i have managed to pass on my first attempted, with a score of 1000. icon_lol.gif
It was really hard going. We had problems getting the test started, and had to wait 2 hours to take the test. I glad that I waited at least it is done now. The exam was very varied across the board.

I am going, to wait, until September, to start my 70-291. Thought, that I would do the first part of CCNA in a few weeks.

    1000! Well Done!

    How long did you spend on the test?

    I did the exam, in 2 hrs. I had to, so that i could get back to college and teach my class.( i am inclass at the mo)they are all going windows installations.

    I also have a lot of experience on server 2003,Like 3 years, because i teach it on some of my courses, but i still found lots of the questions quite demanding.

    One good thing about what i do, is that i get plent of chance to set-up different scenarios, and my students, always asking me questions, that i have to figure out. It as really helped me on the 70-290.

    I did the official Microsoft course, which was spread over 12weeks. This helped in digesting,all of the infomation. I also used Testout and trainsignal, video tutorials.I also created 3 different virtual networks consisting of 2003 DC's,win XP pro and win 2000 workstations. This was so that i could really play about doing different labs.

    But the biggest help was my networking students, who used to mess up the class servers, and workstations.That i spent loads of time working out problems, and answering all of their questions.

    In September, i will be teaching 70-270, and 70-290.through my college, as we are becoming an official Microsoft Academy, so that was another incentive to do well.

    So now it's roll on July,so that i can have a well earned rest. :D

    I am usually hesitant to offer congrats to someone who gets 1000 on an exam, I guess it's just my suspicious nature. In your case, however, I feel confident that your score came by honest hard work and study. Great job! icon_thumright.gif

    Make sure you bring in donuts or something for your class to thank them for screwing things up enough so you could ace the exam. :P
