hi all,

I have not posted for a while, but have been keeping an eye on the site over the last month or 2.

Well what can i say, except WHAT A RELIEF! :D

took it twice previous, scored 676 each time! i re took it Friday and scored 936. if you read my previous posting after 1st failure the topics covered/listed in the exam are pretty much the same. also had the same SIM on each test.

one thing that really worried me (and the guy sat next to me taking 270) was that waiting for the score to appear on screen took at least 5 minutes to come up (but seemed like hours)!! luckily the system did not crash on me so i can be thankful for that i guess. icon_rolleyes.gif

for those of you out there preparing to sit the exam in the next days/weeks/months get your head round ALL topics!! it is not easy but worth the satisfaction once you get that 'Congratulations' notification displayed on screen!

onto 273 in the next week or so..... that will give me MCSA, then i shall go for the final to make MCSE as soon as i can.

GOOD LUCK to all taking this exam soon.

    Hi!,

    I use GB7, GB62, GB111, just depends on which one is available when i am ready.

    Where are you based? What test center's do you use??
    What are you studying??

    Presumably you are going for 291... good luck with it!!

    I actually passed 70-291 the same day as you (yesterday)! Im going for MCSE, think Im going to do 70-293 now (due to the whole overlap thing) and then do 70-270 + elective just so I can get the MCSA in my hand.

    I used Reading test center for 70-290, and I've just done 291 at Bracknell as so far they seem to have constant availability (i.e 24 hours notice) which is pretty good. Maybe see you in 293, don't be a stranger!

    Best of luck

    Fantastic score, respect is due! To the OP - How long do you think you spent studying for the 70-291 over the three exams you took?
