    I sat this test today, and although I didnt pass, I thought it was alot easier than many people make it out to be.

    If you could see my paper, you would see that I got:

    95% Ip addressing
    80% DNS
    80% Network Security
    0% Routing and Remote Access ( I know, I know, brush up on RRAS)
    80% Network Infrasturcture

    I'll be resitting the exam on Friday. Overall it covers alot of DNS topics, my exam had a few on DHCP, SUS, some questions about Terminal Services, IPsec, security templates, backup, etc. Now I will reiterate this point, know DNS like the back of your hand, there were about 20 questions on DNS, which was alot more than any other section.

    My final score was 671, with me needing 700 to pass, what a bummer. But I will tackle routing and remote access between now and Friday and I'll pass it.

    By the way, once I pass this, then I can call myself and MCSA

    Thanks for the feedback... I plan on taking the next couple weeks off to enjoy the holidays and get some snowboarding in, but will start studying for this one soon and hopefully pass by the end of January.

    Painful.

    For some reason the testing system lagged 15 to 30 seconds between questions, and took more than five minutes to display the result when it was completed. (The clock was running through the delays, and I used the full measure of test time reviewing items).

    The screen was set to 800x600 on a 21" monitor, requiring endless scrolling to view questions and graphics in a low-budget grainy format.

    That said, I passed, although with less margin than I feel comfortable about.

    I'm scheduled to take this test on the 21st, and my biggest focus so far for this test has been on DNS. I would also expect to see quite a few RRAS questions and DHCP, but I have a feeling DNS is the key to this one.

    Default wait a minute...

    hey when you fail a test, dont you have to wait 2 weeks to take it again... or is that just a 'recommendation'? Microsoft's site seems to have that as a requirement, but if it isnt then maybe ill schedule my retake for a week from now or something...

    :/

    At any rate, I'll be really happy once i have 291 behind me!

    You can retake it any time when you fail the first time. Two weeks wait if you fail after that...
