Passed today, feels good, Used cbt and Todd Lamelle book, tough exam but I got through it, not much of a poster here but learnt alot from reading the posts.

Tips for exam would be to keep an eye on the time, don't spend too much time on sims if you can't get them working, be able to subnet very very quickly.

Onto ms 70-290 next

    PremierCisco thanks, No I'm from Limerick

    Not far from me so, i'm next door in Tipperary.

    Yes the job front in Ireland is not very good at the moment, however keep sending out your C.V.'s and eventually someone will bite.

    Even if they are looking for experience still apply. Are you only looking for positions in Limerick or further a field like Dublin etc....

    It begs the question, how am i to get experience if no one will give me the job to get experience. I've been there so i know what your going through.

    Have your tried the company called IT Force. Their website is IT Force - IT Consulting, Contract Technical Staff, Outsourced IT, Technical Services, Managed Services - IT Force, they are based in the Guinness Enterprise Park about 15 minutes walk from Heuston Station.

    Just looking on their website now - helpdesk support position in Dublin.

    Hope this helps.
