    Talking Passed :-)

    Hi guys,

    Please to say I passed this one yesterday. I got a score of 815 which I wasn't overly impressed with as I felt I had prepared well but a pass is a pass I suppose. I must say I didn't find it to be the easiest test of them all, if anything it was pretty tricky.

    I am now looking to complete my MCSE with either the 70-297 or 70-298...any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Congrats. But if you already have the 350, why not take the 298 and then Sec+ to round off the MCSE Security?

    Congrats I plan on taking this one at the end of the week and then I'm going to go with 70-298 to round out my MCSE I wasn't sure if I had wanted to take the 70-298 but since it does lend itself to both the Messaging and Security requirement I thought it best to take that if I decided to get the MCSE + S

    What is the advantage of taking 70-297? It only applies to +Messaging, while 70-298 counts towards Messaging and Security.

    I only took 297 since it counts as a course for WGU. Once I finish 70-293 and Security+, I'll likely end up going back to take 70-298 to finish out my MCSE:Security. Either that, or I can leave it at MCSE and MCSA:Security.

    That's a very good score. Someone once said to me that if you score really high on the exam that just means you spent too much time studying. Aim for a 700. Then you can spend the extra time on your next cert.

    Kinda hard for me to do because I tend to over-prepare but the point is a solid one.
