Passed today on second attempt, thanks to ms free second chance offer. Those sims really caught me of guard on my first attempt,nothing like the 270 exam.Career change for me so haven't worked in IT before and still looking for a job, so if anyone knows of any vacant jobs in London or Essex area for IT man a bit green around the edges. On to 291 now to get my mcsa. Also looking to do the comptia security exam before they bring in the 3 year rule, can any of you expirienced techs tell me if the security+ exam is one worth having on your cv. I already have the A+ and N+.
