    Default I passed my 298 exam on Monday - now I'm MCSE

    It was definitely the easier of the MS exams. Alot of stuff covered in previous books for eg SUS, RRAS, L2TP / IPSEC, Auditing, GP's, MSBA, IAS, RDP, and always as usual adopt the principle of choosing the most secure way of doing things . Still can't believe I have my MCSE its been a hard slog, I started doing this in Sept 04 but feels very rewarding once you get it. I was going to post up something yesterday but I was still getting over my hangover.

    Not sure whats next will take some time off study for a bit, may look for a new job next year, may consider CCNA but at the moment I'm planning my holiday to Tuscany for a week in Sept, can't wait.

    Thanks to all on this site, tips, tricks, comments, websites, what books to read, the sticky notes, areas to study. I honestly don't think i would have got through without it all as i did most of this at home on my own and in the work place, didn't attend any classes. This site for me was the same as attending classes. cheers

    thanks very much i think for me this was the best route as where i work we have ISA 2000 with every other server product running. The only one i wanted to do which i didn't was exchange but I don't need a cert to know how to use it just grab a book and start reading.

    297. That's because I hadn't even thought of the 298 as an option; if I had, I'd have gone for that.
