Thanks Again! Now With Improved Advice Request!

Once again, with the help of these boards, I have managed to not fail another microsoft test. I passed the 291 today, with a big 788. This thing was indeed a beast. I finished faster than most people, but it still just put a hurtin' on my brain (good prep for the virtualization beta). My best area was network infrastructure, and my worst area was, somewhat surprizzingly, RRAS.

So, I know have passed the 620, 290, and 291. I had initially thought that the mcse was 6 exams, so i was just going to not worry about getting the mcsa as soon as possible. However, know that i realize that i have an extra test, i would like to go ahead and take the elective (probably the 284) I would like to do this now, but i know that everyone always suggests to take the 293 immediately following the 291, as there is so much overlap. How much would i be hurting myself by putting the 293 off one test? What are your thoughts on this?


Thanks again everyone!

    Unless getting your MCSA will get you a pay raise, I would strongly suggest taking 293 soon after, especially since you plan on getting an MCSE. There's no point in re-studying material that's already fresh on your mind.

    That's kind of a glass-is-half-empty way to refer to a pass icon_lol.gif

    Congratulations!

    Not only does 293 have a lot of overlap with 291, it will also help you out with 284, so I'd encourage you to go on to 293.

    I used the ms press book, transcender, and CBT nuggets. I also reviewed the material in the stickies in this forum as my week-of testing.

    I have been billing an average of 50 hours or so a week at work, so I haven't been able to devote as much time as I would have liked, but, as everyone knows, a win is a win.


    Thanks Again!

    Yes I don't disagree. Anti-condemnation on your not failing the exam! icon_confused.gif

    Man, you'd think I wrote exam questions part time with that one...
