    I think you're the first person on here I've seen use your old NT4 credential to pull off an MCSA. Congratulations on that and the pass icon_thumright.gif

    yeah I'm probably a dumbass for not doing the Win2K upgrade exam so it must be a rare sight to see NT4 MCSEs with little else to show since, ones who still work in IT anyway.

    Congrats on the pass! I actually had the exact same score on the test a couple days ago. I figured no one would believe me if I said it. :)

    Congrats!

    I also got a 700 a few months ago. You are now apart of a highly touted group, there's not too many with our highly specialized magical powers. icon_wink.gif

    Congrats :) . Did u use the CbtNuggets for 291 ? Well .. did you follow it ? I tried going through it as well, didnt work out for me. I think TestOut is better for this Paper.

    Hey,

    Congratulations I'm studying for my 70-291 exam date should be the 20th of October. Hopefully I can follow in your shoes and make the MCSA grade.

    sure did use CBT Nuggets, bastard re-uses alot of the stuff for the 293 nuggets too. Apparently I didn't follow RRAS well since I got a 0 in it lol. But I do like the instructor, I can follow doublespeed with him. I'll have to borrow my friends TestOut and see what its like.

    Are you saying you got a 700 and got a 0 on the RRAS section? That sounds all too familiar. icon_wink.gif

    icon_lol.gif , then you know how it is, I never have used a Microsoft machine (or any computer) for any routing other than dial-in, VPN or ICS. I thought I had an idea what was going on there but apparently not hehe. I'm setting up NAT in MS Virtual Machine rather belatedly, just in case it helps with 293.

    Congrats on the pass!!

    Yes - well done on the pass!

    I am doing my 291, quite nervous about it, flew through my Network+ but felt it will certainly help me with the 291.

    I am half way through CBT nuggets, also done 3/4 of the TestOut too..., perhaps I am just feeling the fear of it - think I have finally clicked with Custom Subnetting however it does take a while to work out, double checking and reading my own notes on how to do it though!

    Sweated blood studying for this exam as well and passed with a score of 700 a few weeks ago.
    I've done better in a lot of tests but this feels like the best score ever :D, after reviewing the test was convinced I'd failed icon_eek.gif .
    I too am going for the 70-284 next (17th Nov) Good luck everyone.

    Hail the 700 icon_lol.gif
