BAM! 800 on the beast!

Ok it was my second time taking it, but I am SOOO happy to have it behindme. While I was at it a took Securuty + and passd that too, with an 825. I think that will give me my MCSA (270, 290, 291 and S+).

I simply nailed the DNS stuff that had been my downfall, previously (TOTAL black bar on the test sheet! STRONG, baby, STRONG!!). I just read the technet stuff till I puked it back out. Great links to all of that in some other folks' posts here. And those links really helped so thanks to all of you brainiacs!!!

Again lots of WSUS. More DHCP than I had the last time and not as much RRAS, a few of the same questions, but many were different. two of three sims were the same as last time too, which helped because I am pretty sure I got one of those wrong the first time. All that shows me that MS really does change things up when you re-test.

Also, I took the test with Vue and definitely had access to the scientific calculator.

Good luck to all attempting this MUTHA! Study hard! On to 293 for me.

    Congrats on the pass! I meant to post about the scientific calculator in my post as well but I forgot. I didn't need to use it but it was nice knowing it was there :D
