    Default 70-291 I just missed passing

    I took the test today got a 677. The only weakness was implementing, Managing, and Maintaining Name Resoulution.
    I was very strong in the other 4. I had 43 questions. I am taking the 2nd chance test tomorrow.

    Default 2nd chance to soon

    I took my 2nd chance the to soon. I retook the exam it was completly different from the first one. I got a 564. The questions seemed to be a lot harder than the first one. I will wait and take the test when I know I am ready. It doesn't pay off to try to rush.

    I got 496 a couple of weeks ago, same case for me it was the DNS area where I showed the weakest. Eventhough I studied DNS as much as the other topics I needed to know it alot more in depth than any book could really explain.

    I'm in no rush to take this exam again, I will take it again when the time is appropriate, I feel that you can't cram for this material, you have to really learn it.

    Default no rush

    I guess me being a cheap freak makes me take time for preparation, i would hate to flush 125 down the toilet. i am looking at 4 months for this test, looking to be mcsa by end of 06.

    Default I just took my 70-291 for the 4th time and just barley......

    PASSED

    It was tough. I thought I had failed again. I will say this none of the 4 test I took were easy and each one was totaly different . It sure makes me appreciate passing this one . I passed with a 700. That works for me. Thanks for the support.

    First, let me say, congratulations on a job well done!!!

    I took this exam once before and failed. It has been a real thorn in my side, I'm use to studying for 1-3 months for each exam and this exam is going on 4.

    I'm gonna take it again, probably this week. So, if you have any last minute advice on skills to brush up on that would much appreciated.

    For the 70-293 and 294 vets, how does 291 compare in terms of studying time, etc.?
