    Default 70-284

    Anybody out there have any experience with 70-284 Exchange Server 2003?

    I am about a week in with my studying and I was just wanting to hear from others that haven taken this test on what I should expect? Is it one of the more difficult ones or do I not need to worry too much?

    I have the Sybex Study guide, the transcender practice exam and I have built a test server to do the excerises in the book with.

    Any other suggestions?

    Well after almost 2 months of studying I finally am done. I went and took the test on Friday and failed, than I studied all weekend took the test again this morning and just barley got by with a 700. This test is very tough and most of the questions were really not on Exchange at all but more related to routing and DNS. I haven't starting studying for Cisco or exam 70-216 yet so I am very new to these areas and that made it very difficult for me.

    Honestly I don't think Microsoft should make a specialized exam and than try to cram other areas into the questions but hey what do I know

    Now on to exam 70-217.

    I used the Sybex 70-284 book and the 70-284 transcender. If I had to do it again I would probably have also picked up a book on routing and a book on Exchange 5.5 as well.
