Final Prep 70-646 Exam - Advice needed

I've tried the 646 twice on the 1st June and 24th June and failed with a 550 both times icon_sad.gif
The second shot offer expiration date led me to doing the exam resit a bit too soon.
(maybe others have been in the same situation)

Looking at my test results I made an improvement in most areas apart from the last Section: "Busines Continuity / High Availabliity." This was a disaster and dropped from 100% to 37% on the results printout.

As from previous advice I've concentrated on my weaker topics over the last few weeks.

In addition to this I've read the Darril Gibson 70-646 Study Guide a couple of times and gone over the weaker areas in particular. (an easier read than the MS press and some good - end-of-chapter questions.

I've also gone over all my Transcender tests and re-done the tests going over all the ones I've failed. Also gone through CBT Nuggets again. Had more "hands-on" at work as we are now using Server 2008 more widely.

I have also listed where I thought I went wrong on my previous two attempts and brushed up on the areas.

I am fully aware that this MCITP exam is a different animal from the MCTS series of exams and needs a different approach.

For those who have already done this exam, with my next exam scheduled for the 7th august (13 days off) any last minute tips for the final descent :)

Any thoughts welcomed...........

    I read the MS Press 646 book and I thought that with the examples was enough to get me through the exam. It sounds like you should be ready for the exam and maybe just got a little pressed for time between retakes. The next one should go better.

    It sounds like you made andf followed a good plan for this retake of the exam. I'm confident you'll knock it out of the park this time. Good Luck!
