"Training Camp" review - 70-290
I just took the 70-290 exam today after taking a 2 and a half-day "boot camp" class through Training Camp. The training camp material could not have done a better job preparing you for the specific questions that are on the exam. They have an extensive selection of practice questions, which turned out to be extremely similar to the test questions. They even have sample simulations and interactives to study. However, many concepts that I am sure are important for hardcore Server 2003 admins are completely skipped simply because they are not on the test. I supposed there is no way around that or else you could not get all the material in such a short amount of time. Most of the main topics are covered however. For this reason, I would make sure and stress to your manager or whoever you are working for that this is not a Server 2003 class. This is a class on how to pass this particular exam. There is definitely a difference between the two. I took the test today and passed with a 976. Just so that you know my background, I manage an IIS web sever and several data severs all running Sever 2003. I have Security +, Windows XP Admin, and now Server 2003 Admin certifications. Feel free to ask me any questions about the class and I'll give you my honest opinion.
