    Default 270 and 290 at the same time ..... need your advice !!!

    Was planning on taking both exams at the same time (to reduce travelling costs ...) Those of you who passed both exams, do you think it is a good idea ? Going throught the material, I see that there is an overlapping on almost all the objectives .... Thoughts, suggestions, please I need your advice

    Thanks

    Ideally, you really want to take them seperately. There is a lot of material that overlaps, but there is just as much that is seperate. Then again, if traveling to the testing center is a big problem, it may be worth your while to take the tests together. . . if you are as ready for them as you would be if you were taking them seperately, that is.

    I hope you pass them, good luck.

    If you can keep the subject matter from the two exams separate and learn both of them I'd say go for it. I would offer a warning though. Do not think that the to exams are similar enough to go in prepared for one and then feel you way through the other. True their is a lot over overlap between the two but there is a vast amount of information that does not. Be careful, but it can be done.

    Everything in the MCSE path overlaps painfully...

    They could easily have cut out 2 exams if they got organized.

    Thanks guys !!! I understand your concern Marc.... I am preparing 2 exams, I go through all the material for both exams, even if I already read it for the other one ...... I understand that the 290 is really hard .... I did not book the tests yet, still making up my mind

    Anyway ! Thanks a lot
