TCP/IP question on 70-290 Exam?

I read a post here where someone mentioned not being prepared for the TCP/IP questions on the exam. I'm taking classes at New Horizion to study for the MCSE and for this first exam, I've gone through the 2274 and 2275 Microsoft courses. These are "Microsoft Official Course" books. I don't recall either of these books discussing TCP/IP. The CBT material is from and I don't recall it covering TCP/IP either.

I'm also using Transender to study, and don't recall it there as well. I was also surprised to see Transender questions about VBScript because that was never covered in the MS books, or the CBT material.

Am I just missing something?

    I don't recall the 290 having a lot of questions on TCP/IP. you WILL see questions on the 291 and 270 exams. You mostly see question about printers, users, groups, accounts, backups, installing servers, etc.

    You might see some basic stuff, like giving the same subnet mask to several different machines in order for them to communicate, but nothing beyond "what's an IP address?" kind of questions so there's no need to worry about it unless you don't know the difference between an IP address and your foot. You'll have to know subnetting, port numbers, and a little bit about routing for 70-291, (as well as DNS. . . lots and lots of DNS), however.

    I've taken it 3 times lol. Don't recall any TCP/IP q's but as always, prepare for as much as you can, just in case.
