    Default 70-299/70-291 similarities?

    greetings all

    i've got my 70-299 exam on the 9th april
    i'm using CBT nuggets, Test out & i also bought the preplogic megaguide**
    and i'm trying to study for an hour or so a night

    i've noticed that some of the subject matter seems to be similar
    to the 70-291 stuff i studied back in the dim dark mists of last year!

    so my question is, would it be worth my while recovering the 70-291 sections on network security
    or is my plan(ish) above along the right lines?

    **well it was only $4, thats something like 3shillings and 4pence for us brits!

    the 299/298 contain much of the informaition you learned about security from other certs like the 270, 290, 291, 293. I took the 270, 290, 291, 293 and Sec+ and passed the 298 with only some review and test prep from self test software.

    I did not take the 299, but I had a copy of the study material and did a few practice exams and am of the opinion it is the same, just from a different angle than the 298.

    If you paid attention to the security related material that was rehashed again and again in the other certs, these should be ok for you.

    I would review the security material from the 291/293. The 299 book will get you through both the 299 and 298. The 298 is very dry and is more guidelines, so if you are short on $$$, you can do without. the 299 is very well written and covers all the material well. I also supplemented with technet and some resources on this site.
