Got the MCP for this being my first exam other than the beta Windows 7 configuring I did last week. Wasn't feeling 110% about it but went ahead and did it anyways. Hands on expierence in a Virtual Enviroment or real deal helps a lot for this exam I can see now. I had a few sims and without doing some of the things before I'm sure it woulda been harder. MS Press book helped a LOT even though its one tough read. Lot of questions on backup and restore especially Domain controllers. Had more than I expected on IIS as well.

Next up is the 270 for me before the Beast to make that MCSA than on to the MCSE. Best of luck to all those working on this thing.

Off to enjoy the rest of this wekeend!!

    I passed it myself on Tuesday! Score was 772. The MS book on 70-290 was my only source

    - 44 questions
    - 3 or 4 simulations on Permissions as well as Security & Distribution Groups (with scopes)
    - an interesting Q on upscaling RAM with Enterprise Server
    - one on LDIFDE (I'm glad I paid attention to that little paragraph)
    - some trick questions on System State and ASR and their differences
    - as above with Terminal Services and Remote Desktop
    - one question I'm still puzzled about showing an exhibit of Policy concerning backup permissions and asking what needs to be changed in policy to allow a prior member of Backup Operators perform a backup

    Now onto 70-291..
