Got a 750 on my first try...

I took the 101 and used Test Out and Sybex for material.

    At least you will know which areas to study up on. Just don't give up! Keep us updated. try using the VTC stuff too, they have free demos from their website that cover a decent amount for free. I used VTC for this exam and the instructor was in the security field, which helped.
    -WIP- (70-294 and 297)

    Once MCSE 2k3 completed:

    WGU: BS in IT, Design/Management

    Finish MCITP:EA, CCNA, PMP by end of 2012

    After that, take a much needed vacation!!!!!

    You will do fine on the 2nd times. Now you know how they look like, but the price of the exam is pretty expensive.

    Shen, I'm taking the exam next Friday, using Testout and Sybex, I'm worried about Cryptography, is there a lot of questions on that, I don't understand the concepts of cryptography.

    I don't think it's a good idea to take the exams without understanding Cryptography very well. Google the topics you don't understand, you need basic understanding only.

    I highly recommend you do not take the test if you don't fully understand Cryptography.

    When I took the test the first time I felt confident that I knew the material inside and out. However, the way they word some of the questions really threw me off.

    Go over the Technotes and Practice exams on this website. They really helped me out.

    Good luck
