    Default Passed the Beast now MCSA

    I passed the beast today with a 935. I got 9 sims which is about average for what I have read in the past. It took me about 3 months of studying the MS press and Sybex book and of course lots of labs and it doesn't hurt to practice with my everyday job. Now on to 293 and/or 294..... Wish me luck

    Congrats on a great score and a job well done

    Don't forget to take a break and get away from the for a bit so you don't burn out.

    Great job on the score and on getting through the MSPress book. I found it a hard one to read.

    I do take about 1-2 weeks between... I have gotten burnt out before and that is not very productive. It helps that I work 3rd shift and can study a bit at work.

    Thanks! I too find all MSPress books a very dry read that is why I like to sprinkle in the Sybex books. I figure between the two it should cover most everything.

    Congrats! I passed it too today! A score of 828... a lot of sims, probably something on subnetting, some WSUS 3.0!
    I did 100% on DNS, IP Addressing and RRAS... unfortunately I was not prepared on WSUS 3.0 and Terminal Server security (!!!) Anyway a pass is a pass!

    I used TestOut (very good material, videos, simulations, q/a), the Syngress manual (a little bit too long and dispersive for me) and Tom Kitta notes... thanks too a friend I viewed also some CBT Nuggets videos (James Conrad), it was really useful to learn how to subnet!

    After the holidays I will start to study for Exchange 2007

    Ciao!

    To be technical, there is really only 1 smile. There are also 2 winks and 2 sad faces.
