    Congrats!

    What did you end up doing to fill the gaps on 70-643? I'm still at such a loss for why I failed both times and what to do about it that I've been procrastinating for weeks on my third attempt.

    I went back to the stuff I had and took different notes based on what I could remember from the various questions I had from the prior three attempts (after awhile, you start getting "a-ha" moments...and I don't mean "Take on Me" either...[cheese])

    What I used/reused were Mastering Windows Server 2008 R2 and focused on RDS and Hyper-V (I did get Hyper-V questions, but not a lot). It helped me fill in the blanks for failover clustering with VMs and what to enable. (I'll be stopping right there...)

    Windows Server 2008 R2 Unleashed really helped bring home IIS. Coupled that With the Sybex 70-640, 70-642 and 70-643 guide. (Read the 70-643 guide.)

    The depth of this exam (and with 50 questions to boot) is what kills people. I had to literally find quiet spots at work to read chapters (it is not light reading). Then using some lab exercises provided in those books at home.......it was rough a deal. But my final attempt had paid off. I just couldn't understand why I was failing these exams in my earlier attempts (the first attempt was really bad, but once I buckled down I was still not bringing home the Gold!)

    I do enjoy working under pressure...and no doubt I had added pressure because I still have work responsibilities! I really have rethought my decision to undertake this exam and if I had to do it all over again, I would have probably benefited from a much slower pace (financially and mentally.) Too many da-- gotchas! But Mastering and Unleashed really helped save the day, but again it is not light reading...even if you understand what's going on (and I do/did.)

    What I will say is that procrastinating between attempts will hurt more than help. In my case, I had no choice but to do it every two weeks (I had to graduate.) Those who don't have WGU putting a gun to their head may not be so fortunate, but still......I'm effing drained as I type this....though that's overshadowed with the fact that I'm still pretty excited!

    Thank you for all the congratulations! I am so looking forward to next week's three day weekend.

    To those who have the MCITP:EA...I know a good reason why I can't find this thread is because I'm tired...I don't know where it is, but someone had posted about completing the requirements for an MCITP (I don't know if it was an EA, SA or what....but it was the full certification.)

    Anyway, the MCP site has shown my pass for the 643 and it's part of my transcript. But I don't have the MCITP:EA yet. I was trying to find that thread to see if I have to contact India, I mean Microsoft, no, I mean India to see what's up with that or will the MCITP:EA just show up in a few days? I just find it weird that I have all five exams, but no MCITP logo/cert.

    Should I just wait the week?

    The EA finally showed up on my transcript this morning. I can at least say it took a few days for me as well.
