The deed is done

Ok, first of all... That really sucked. I answered 30% of the questions on the first go around. Luckily I did pass, by a decent margain too. 841.

There is lots more work to do. I'll probably keep up with the 293 for the rest of the week just to feel comfortable with everything before moving on. A lot of my answers were educated guesses. Knock off 2 of the answers and go back and forth between the other 2 before I decided which was the better option. The simulations saved me. 10 of those and I know that at least 7 or 8 of them I did right and pretty confident in the others. NLB/Clustering really hurt, I suspect because I never created clusters in my lab and was 100% going off the Nuggets and some reading. I also got tripped up with some of the compatibility issues of older operating systems, but I think my educated guessing paid off in that area.

    Congrats on the good score!
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    Congrats on the pass! See you in the 294 section. Just wondering, on the NLB/Clustering, you said you didn't lad those. Was that due to needing multiple Nic cards on VM's with a laptop?

    I ran into that problem until I found an old pcmcia card that was sitting on the shelf here at work. Once it was installed, I got it set right and clustering worked like a champ.

    Once MCSE 2k3 completed:

    WGU: BS in IT, Design/Management

    Finish MCITP:EA, CCNA, PMP by end of 2012

    After that, take a much needed vacation!!!!!

    I suppose I don't really have any excuse for not labbing it. I don't have any boxes, but I could have set it up in VMware. I just felt it was going to take more time to set up and test than I would get out of it. (I did set up a basic 2 node NLB cluster about 6 months ago, but I never examined it). I chose to focus my time and energy elsewhere.

    It was something that I intended to get to, but like I said in another post, this last week has been crazy and there are a lot of things that I didn't get to that I wanted to. One of the reasons I am not quite giving up on the topic, even though I have the piece of paper.

    298, I'm going for the security specialty. So it looks like I'm going to be shooting for 294 near the end of November, and get the 298 in by the end of the year so that I can complete the 299 in like the first week of 2011.

    Good job! 841 is not a bad score at all, and as they say a pass is a pass. :D I'll be taking 293 in about a month so I'll be sure to lab MSCS and NLB scenarios.

    Id take that over RRAS anyday.

    Good job on the pass, good score too. I was shooting for the end of the month but I havent studied in about a week. Are you trying to get 294 and 298 done by the end of the year?

    The 291 nuggets had 4 or 5 nuggets devoted to RRAS. The 293 nuggets had 2, if that gives you an idea of how much RRAS is stressed.
