MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

MY God, was that an experience! Passed this thing with an 810; a score which I will GLADLY TAKE :D
the kicker is I got a perfect on RRAS which was easily my weakest subject. I was hit with DHCP and RRAS , not as much DNS as expected, TONS of IPSEC which scared the crap out of me. 1 sim, and a few on subnetting. I honestly thought I failed, so to see my 810 was amazing.

My Advice:
anybody who takes this exam lightly is a fool. Study the usual (DNS RRAS, DHCP etc) and add IPSEC on that list. Lab it up and understand ALL concepts. Used the same test center as before, no problems. Except for the 5 minute wait period for my score (which seemed like 20, and I could hear my heart beating).

This completes my MCSA :D Im glad its over with. Moving on to 293 and the MCSE!

As always, thanks everyone for the direct and non direct support! This is the best forum on the net, hands down for anything IT related. icon_thumright.gif

    Congrats! Same happened to me with RRAS. It was my weakest subject and I got a perfect on it also. Odd eh?

    Sounds like you got the exact same test as I did. I also scored perfect on RRAS which was my weakest subject.

    Whoa! I didn't know you were taking this already; I was really surprised to see you as the author.

    Anyway, congratulations Mr. MCSA!

    It's too bad your copy of GTA 4 isn't arriving until Monday; that would have been a great celebratory item to receive. I guess you'll just have to celebrate the old fashioned way drunken_smilie.gif
