I passed 298 yesterday with a 762 . Not the greatest score, but it's been such a long road for me and now I can finally say I done it. 3 years ago after failing 290 3 times I had began to think MCSE was not possible for me to achieve. Walking the MCSE track has not just been about getting a better job and making more money, but a personal challenge that I once thought someone as average as myself could not do. But I am just so glad I kept pressing on even when my co-workers and friends had given up on trying for MCSE. I kept going and finally made it to the top . Yeah I know MCSE is becoming outdated, but I must say it's been a great challenge and I had my reasons for wanting to stick to it until it was done. I know there are bigger challenges ahead, but I figure as long as I keep my current mindset I will achieve those as well.
Now I'll be working on Security+ to get MCSE: S. Then after that I'll be taking a break for the rest of the year and through the holiday season. My goals so far for next year are CCNA: S, MCTS 680, and MCTS 649.
