Question about 70-294 and 70-298

Heres the thing I belong to a certification school currently and my term is running out. I will have to pay for the last two courses: 70-294 and 70-298. Question is will I be able to learn these two courses on my own?

I failed 70-291 and decided to move on. Currently I have passsed: 70-290, 70-270, 70-284. I will be jumping back to 291 after I complete 293. A few more weeks and I should be done.

Failing 291 kind of lost my motivation but I got it back. :D

    This might seem like a stupid answer, but it really depends on you. A lot of people, myself included, will complete the entire track without any formal training. Personally, I prefer being self-taught. I can work at my own pace (which is usually faster), and I adjust my study time around a busy schedule. You might be the complete opposite. This doesn't mean you're stupid or anything like that; it just means you have a different learning style. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that, but it might mean that you would have a difficult time wrapping those two up on your own. You know yourself best.

    Good luck!

    P.S. A lot of people stumble on 291, so you shouldn't let that discourage you.

    Yeah the school I belong to is self-pace, but my pace wasn't all that great... Especially for 70-291. I guess I might as well learn on my own.

    I have lab machines and Ghost at home so I might as well take advantage. Also have Server 2003 Enterprise. Is that sufficient for 294 and 298?

    Yep. It sounds like you're good as far as hardware and software go. You might want to also consider playing around with VMWare Server (free) or VMWare workstation ($189 or 30-day trial). That'll allow you to run multiple machines within one of yours. It can make things a bit easier for duplicating/restoring machines, setting up networking, etc. It's definitely an interesting technology that you should probably start getting a little familiar with, if you haven't already.

    Thanks for the tip. Yeah people have told me about VMWare. I should learn how to use it in conjunction with Ghost. VMWare comes alot into play I assume with desktop support techs.
