    A refreshed approach can be the answer.

    I reckon you'll get it this time, good luck.

    Looks as though you had good prep. Those a good materials you used. Plus you have a good idea of what you will be encountering. Looking forward to your update next week.

    Good Luck!

    Best of Luck for The Beast :)

    Well it took me 48 Minutes - but i slain "The Beast" it is no more!!!!!

    boy was i shocked i thought i was doing an infrastructure exam!

    it was more like a Command Line exam!

    lots of different styles of questions evolving around "Command Line" Switches and results

    only one sim though!

    Make sure you study Command Line!

    thanks to All that have aided me and left replies on my posts

    next up 293!

    I passed mine today as well. 778. They hit each major section of the exam but left off subnetting entirely. I asked the proctor to leave them off and he laughed. icon_wink.gif He said it was an admin exam not a CCNA!

    I had a hand full of command line (maybe 5 out of 48 questions.) I had about 7 RRAS, 8 DNS, almost 10 WSUS 3.0 (Shocked on the amount of them) a few DHCP with the rest filled out with Security and GPO. 1 Sim on creating and setting priority on MX records. It was pretty varied I must say.

    I used the MS Press book with a LAB setup. I recommend installing modems as my Lab PCs didn't have them which made ICS a little difficult to follow. No phone lines needed. Just the modems installed.

    I didn't go through Section 2 in the MS book. Once I got to the end of Section 1 I started right into my TestOut videos and practice exams. I did every Sim so that along with the MS Press LAB I really got a good feel for the server OS.

    I took it twice and still haven't passed. Got a 602 the first try and a 677 yesterday. I was literally shocked as I thought I had it.

    I scheduled it again for the 16th. I don't want to lose the momentum. I read the posts and bought the transcender hoping that will put me over. I am going to hit up the topics again and then take a practice exam afterwards.

    Any other suggestions? Congrats to those that passed yesterday!

    That’s too bad, though you're getting closer so that’s a positive, what area's are you weak on? Make sure to brush up on those.

    3rd time's a charm.:)

    You are about 1 question away. Hit the areas you scored lower on and you'll nail it!
