Passed Using Testout and Technotes

I was able to pass only using Testout, Technotes and the study guide on mcmcse.com.

I made sure to print out the "fact sheets" on testout, as they contain A LOT of information, including stuff not covered in the lectures.

835! Not great, but not too bad either ;)

I am set as an MCSE 2003: Security. It was a long hard road, but I feel so accomplished!

Thank you techexams.

    Do you have prior security experience? I think it will take a lot more than that for me to pass. I've still gotta get through my Syngress book, my Exam Cram materials, and finish the technotes! icon_eek.gif

    I actually don't! However, this was the final exam for my MCSE, so I a lot of the stuff was just refresher for me. Also, I think people underestimate the amount of information found in Testout's "Fact" sheets. I recommend printing them out. I referred to them while taking the quizzes.

    Technotes, and mcmcse.com were awesome as well. I took as many online practice exams as possible.

    And finally, I trusted my instincts while taking the exam. It's alright to review questions, but don't over due it with second guessing.

    Thanks for the response. All of this is new to me, but I will print out the factsheets and see if they work for me. I'll still have all of my other material around for topics I don't quite get and as a handy reference set.
