    Default Passed the 293!

    Sat the exam this morning -795. Had 50 questions ranging from IPSec, PKI, RRAS, lots of DNS, DHCP. No subnetting questions..which was nice.
    Had 5 sims, 2 of which were so vague, I had to guest what they really wanted.
    Questions were very long and wordy. It helps to read the last line and work up.
    Took me 90 minutes to get through it. Next up is 294.

    I am going to keep going through. I took a break after getting the 620 done, but want to finish up the MCSE.

    congrats! 293 was probably my least favorite exam; it feels so good to be done with it, right?

    Dont be like me (a procrastinator), and keep on going. I totally regret not finishing this track earlier.

    I believe they allow 2.5 hours for the exam.

    Default 293 compared to 291?

    I just passed 70-291 this morning, and I plan on heading right into prep for 70-293. How did you find 293 compared to 291? I had heard all of the horror stories, but I thought 291 was easier than 290, so I just wanted to get some feedback as to the difficulty of 293 vs 291.

    Thanks and congrats.

    I felt the 293 covered some of the material from the 291, but more from a design perspective, rather than managing an existing domain.
    The 293 went fairly heavy into security. I found taking the 299 first and reading it again, helped with the 293. I also read the Security+ book by Sybex.
    I tend to read the book through once, then again while taking notes. That seems to help with retention.
    Since you just passed the 291, a lot of the material should be fresh in your mind.

    Good Luck!
