Finally! It tooks me 8 month to complete this cert, but it was worth it.

Score 70-270: 747
Score 70-290: 796
Score 70-291: 957
Score 70-284: 950

I studied hard for the 291/284 exams and the only possibility to earn a good result ist to set up a lab. But to set up a Exchange cluster in VMware without a x64 CPU and 8GB Memory ist a trial of patience. Do you experience such scenarios only from reading, or do you just have the potent hardware?

I need some variation in my learning schedule and will continue my cert-journey with the CCNA before upgrading to MCITP EA.

I'm very new to this board, but it feels good to be a part of it and though english is not my native language I hope I'm able to share some knowledge.

    Hey rogue2shadow, the 284 is by far the most difficult one since there're very few books which deliever the knowledge you need to pass the exam. You HAVE to build a lab, think out some Exchange environment scenarios and reconstruct them.

    We responded to the Year 2000 issue with "Y2K" solutions...isn't this the kind of thinking that got us into trouble in the first place?

    Congratulations on the MCSA pass. I am playing with Exchange (although 2007) myself; definitely a lot to that program.
    Future Plans:

    JNCIA Firewall

    More security exams and then the world.
