Well, I have slayed the beast. I have one test left for my MCSA now and that is Windows XP (70-270). I plan to take this by the end of the month. Wow, big props to everyone else that has slayed the beast also, it definitely owns up to it's name!!!

    Congrats dude. I'm the new guy. I know you don't know me as nobody here knows me. 70-270 was almost a fun test. Well, it was as fun as a test could be. :) I scored a 9-something on that one which was my highest score out of my MCSE tests. GOOD LUCK!
    Happy Trails,
    Big Jim

    Congrats!

    I'm studying for my 70-270 too, I notice there is A LOT of material on XP.....Even being an XP user for the past 4 years or so, there's much I didn't know.

    Congratulations on the pass, and good luck on that last exam. And remember, since you already have 70-620, that counts as you desktop OS exam, so you don't have to take 70-270, if you're itching to get moving on something else or want to try your hand at something new for your elective.

    Yeah, it's not a test I would want to take again! I think I got a pretty fair score too!

    very true, I would have been happy with anything over a 699

    Well, I have 70-270 scheduled for Monday morning, if all goes well I'll be MSCA after that! I figured I would save XP for last, but I will probably be doing some security or maybe web server ones after that's done (I'm a hosting operations engineer)
