    Default Unoffically a MCSE!

    Well after WAY too long, I'm finally a MCSE. I took my 298 and 294 in the past 2 weeks (got WAY lucky on scheduling my exams! All the prometric test centers have closed but 1 who only does it on fridays).

    I scored a 919 on my 298 and finally got a 769 on my 70-294 after failing that stupid thing 2 times.

    ALL 3 times I took the 294 I felt like I knew all the subjects and felt like I did a pretty good on almost every question. It felt like I should have scored a 800 everytime but instead I got 646/687/769. This test was definitely my beast since I disagreed with half of the questions they posted.

    I still did the worst on implementing computers/users/OUs on my bar graph which is what I've done horrible on everytime. I just don't understand what in the world MS is looking for.

    This took me FOREVER (3-4 years). But I've been on a cert kick recently so getting my MCSE and VCP in the past 1-2 months is a great achievement.

    I'll be taking my 70-647 and my 70-649 in the next month or so to become a MCITP:EA!

    Congrats! That's awesome. Looks like you won the race against Snadam too, so that's like a double bonus

    I know what you mean, I had trouble understanding what they were asking in many of them OU scenarios as well.

    Congrats! I agree with you on 70-294...I failed it the first time with a 670-something, and I thought I had 800+ on it. I passed on my retake, but I still only ended up with a score in the 750 range.

    Thats fantastic news!!! Accept my whole-hearted congrats and get smashed tonight!!!

    I think I am going to agree with you on 294. 291 was WAY more straightforward.

    Yup, I struggled with implementing a user/group/OU structure the most. I would make sure you know when MS gives you a scenario like "you have helpdesk and 4 offices and helpdesk needs access to 4 offices" that you know exactly what Microsoft wants the OU structure to look like.

    Congratulations

    I know how you feel after getting this done. Took me 1 year to get it done, plus 1 and a half more before that to start (cause of job and life situations).

    Hope to see soon your post about that MCITP:EA done.
