Passed

Passed on Tuesday.

I couldn’t believe they gave me 3 hours for the test. I did it in 1 hr and 15 mins After the first couple of questions I knew that I would have plenty of time. I was thinking about taking a power nap during the test.

I was very relaxed on this test. That’s the first time I was actually relaxed on a test. I think the testing center helped with that also, very new, clean, cool, quiet, nobody else in the room with me cussing at their test like I usually experience. So at least I didn’t feel like getting up and hitting anyone. It was a bit of a drive for me, but I will do it again just for the environment.

I didn’t get the kind of score I like to get, 775, but I could have done worse and still passed. I’m happy with it.

I started studying for 70-291 when I got home, so hopefully in a couple of months I will be ready for that one.

    Congrats. That is the same score I got, and we finished in about the same time too.

    Good luck with the "beast" I don't think it is as hard as people make it out to be, but I also haven't taken it yet. Maybe my mind will change if I fail in about two weeks when I take it.

    See you in the 291 forum

    Thanks for all the congrats. I will check out that thread. I have started reading the MS Press book for 291, it looks more interesting than 290.

    So far for me it isn't. Chapter 1 is pretty good, then chapter 2 drops off, 3 is good again, and 4 is back to boring.

    The 291 material will put you to sleep. I'm actually taking a break from studying for a while, the 291 stuff just got so discouraging and tedious. I am reading a couple of normal books and catching up on some gaming before I go back into study mode.

    The concepts are highly interesting, it is the nitty gritty that gets boring.
