    Red face 2nd shot got it

    Passed on the second go (as usual). Scored 882, up from 628 on the first round.
    Used Sybex, MS Press and the sticky notes that Royal had posted (thanks Royal).

    The hardest aspect of the exam for me? Handling the verbose nature in which the questions were written. When a scenario is 5 paragraphs long and each option has 4 lines, I feel it's testing my stamina instead of my knowledge on AD. On the first go I actually ran out of time and had to play lotto on the last 3 questions.

    Glad to have achieved this one, onto Exchange to start the whole study process over again!

    Excellent, great score too. What did you think of the MS Press book?

    Good luck with the exchange studies.

    Thanks bertieb.
    i've always found the MS Press books to be the most comprehensive study guide out there. It doesn't just prepare you for the exam but goes through every button/option/attribute associated with the product.
    However the problem with that I feel, is information overload. That's where the hands-on experience is essential. Any book will only have limited effectiveness by itself.
    Exam aside, MS Press is also an excellent reference for day-to-day administration.
