    Default Scheduled to fight the Beast tomorrow!! Update:Passed!

    I finally built up the courage to schedule the exam! I would've scheduled it sooner, but I was intimidated by this test. I believe in studying everything, but my main focus has been DNS, DHCP, RRAS, IPSEC, and general networking. If anyone knows about any good cram notes to study with or advice about the exam is appreciated

    I passed it today on my second shot; 6 days after I failed it. My advice at this point is a good nights sleep and go in there with a clear, relaxed head. Be prepared to analyze the problems. I did this and I was able to solve some that didn't make sense at first.

    Keep in mind, this is a "management" course.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for encouragement guys! I've been literally studying all day for this. I hope I get it on the first try. If not, I always have the second shot that I can use

    My exam starts in 2 hours. I'm feeling much more confident than before. I believe that I'll be MCSA in few hours!

    Just got back from taking the 291. I just barely slipped by with a 700!! My test was 75% 70-291, and 25% 70-290 . There were some topics on the exam that were not in the 291 MS Press book.

    Thanks to everybody that gave me encouragement. I don't know if I could've got my MCSA without TechExams. Thanks to Dynamik with helping me with Stub Zones and Conditional Forwarders.

    I am wondering what I should do now. Should I move on to 293 or should I go after the Linux+ ? Linux is used alot in my job, so I feel that it'd help me. At the same time, I've heard that the 291 and 293 have a lot of overlap.

    Welcome to the 700 club

    There is a lot of overlap with 291 and 293. You can never go wrong with studying what you use at work though. Your choice, good luck!

    Congratulations. Personally I'd go for 293, 291 does slot neatly into the learning curve for 293 and it might fill in a few of the blanks. Just out of interest what's making you plump for Linux+ over any of the other Linux certs?

    Thanks guys! Elaverick, to be honest, I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to Linux. That goes for the operating systems and the cert exams. I don't know what's the best exam to take as far as Linux goes. Any suggestions?

    Your notes were great! I used them to study the night before the exam. I especially liked how your notes had a lot of the stats and commands that you have to memorize for the test. Actually, I hope you'll make notes for the 70-293 one day

    Thanks!!

    Aquageek, it is a LOT of information to learn for this exam, no doubt about it. The only way to pass this test is to study hard. The test is beatable. As long as you know when and how to implement something, and memorize the main commands (example: netdiag, netsh, dnscmd, etc), you should be fine. Confidence counts for a lot also.
