    Default Passed the beast! Now MCSA!

    Just finished with the beast (literally sitting in the parking lot typing this!). I had about 12 simulation questions out of a 40 question test. I was sweating bullets until the end thinking I didn't pass.... then I saw the score of 890. WTF? That was NOT fun or easy. I'm going to spend the remainder of the month studying just to feel a bit more confident and then more onto the next test towards my MCSE!

    well done, the beast can be a bit of a hurdle to say the least.

    Thats my goal. It certainly won't be easy, but I think it is doable. Then next year I can take a little bit of time off.

    Yes, hopefully MCSE by the end of the year! It's taking me about 2 months to study for each of these harder exams. Next year, I'm hoping to tackle the MCITP:EA upgrade and CCNA.

    The new job is good. I got switched from Tier 2 to the Security Access Team so my official job title is "Security Access Technician." I build AD, Meditech, Outlook, PMM, etc access all day including the correct memberships, DLs, etc. I'm getting paid about 50K to do it and I'm still technically a contractor but I'm fairly sure I'll be hired on. This job is RIDICULOUSLY easy which is where I worry... I don't want to lose any of my other skills working on just ONE thing. After I get hired onto the health system permanently, I'm going to have to bust my chops to find a way into a more network oriented department (though if I want to take my CISSP in the future, I am gaining valid experience at the moment)
