Wanted to post to say I took the Server exam today for the first time and failed with a 590. icon_sad.gif I was a bit dissappointed, because after going through all the questions I thought maybe I only had about 10 multiple choice questions i wasnt too sure about. All the simulations seemed pretty easy and I thought I did well on those. My simulations included creating and configure an alert for the processor, implementing VSS on a volume, configuring a machine w/ an IP address, and joining it to a domain, and configuring default website port and bandwith size and creating a new website in IIS. I was hoping the simulations would be worth more and I would have gotten a better score. Either I didnt do so well on it or I missed many more questions that I thought. :-/ I got alot of questions on backup and disaster recovery, VSS, and Terminal Services/RDP. The sticky notes just dont seem to give enough information on the types of tricky questions it tends to ask. Ok, well i'm hoping I can pull out a passing score on my free retake. Any more information on these subjects any wants to share would be great.

    Next time you should do better. Go over the areas you missed and continously reveiw everything.

    I would give myself 2 weeks to do the retake. In the interim I would get some prep test to review what you are studying. Who says it was easy?

    I took an exam a yr ago and have failed now Im going back at it again scheduled for next Sat.
    What next?

    Microsoft Exams are hard and i bet next time you take it you will definitely do fine! I am going for my 70-270 and everyone just keeps reminding me to read the questions carefully and take your time.
