70-297 or 70-298

I have just finished my 70-294 and have one exam left. I'm trying to decide on the 70-297 or 70-298. I read a few other posts that mentioned the 70-297 was kinda tricky. I didn't do as good on the 70-294 as I did other Microsoft exams. The 70-298 deals with security and I have the Security+ cert also. Is the 70-298 a hard exam? For those of you who have taken the 70-298, what did you think about it? Thanks in advance!

    Everything else being equal (your experience with the material, etc.), the exams are going to be about equal difficulty. The extra difficulty comes from the different case-study format of the exams. Security+ really isn't going to help you with 298. You need to have a good grasp on all the security material up to that point, particularly from 291 and 293. It would probably be beneficial for you skim over the 299 material as well.

    If you do 70-298 you'll get your MCSE.

    If you add 70-351 you'll get two more certs for your belt
    - MCSE: Security
    - TS: Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006, Configuring

    I think I will go with the 70-298 exam. I made the lowest score on the 70-294 exam of any of my Microsoft exams. I'm interested in security, so I think I will go that route. Thanks for the info!
