70-291: What Do I need to know?
WillTech105 Member Posts: 216
Just finished the MS Press book for the 70-291. I can tell for this one MS wants you to know ALOT of new material. DNS and DHCP arent too difficuilt for me, but when it came to RRAS, VPN, RADIUS svrs, IPSec, and network security (chapter 10 and 11 of the book) it started getting fuzzy for me since I never had experience in that stuff before. Now my question is...does the test focus heavily on RRAS, VPN, RADIUS, IPSec, ect that is found in chapt 10 and 11 of the MSPress book? Thanks!

If you haven't done so already, get it labbed up and do the exercises from the MS book, it really helps. Like you, I didn't have much experience of RRAS but found by doing some further reading (technet) and lab practise it helped to hammer it home.
Anything else I should know that the test frequently tests you on or would DNS,DHCP, RRAS, and IPSec be enough?
Dude, We heard you the first time
Yeah, don't do what I did and skip the RRAS and IPsec chapters. While it's still possible to squeak by the 291 without knowing much about RRAS or IPsec, it will definitely come back to haunt you if you plan on taking the 293. Take it from me. I'm having to go back and finish the 291 chapters now after failing the 293 twice. Things are starting to make more sense now for the 293 now. The 293 builds on many of the 291 topics, so don't skip anything!
Do as I say, not as I do
