    Default And the Mini Beast is no more

    Hi All

    Just got back

    With a score of 781, I thought i had failed!

    the exam was very difficult and i used all my alloted time 3 hrs!

    PKI and Sims seem to be the topic of the day

    Now im stuck - dont know whether to continue on the Security path and do my 299 or have a change and do 294

    or

    299 and 298 together?

    Let me know your thoughts

    but for now - BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!

    You could do the 294 next if you need a break. Having taken the 299 and 298 separately, you could definitely take them both on the same day, as the 298 book doesn't really add much. I read through the book and its boring, mostly guidelines.
    The 294 is a different beast with the GPOs, sites, etc. I liked that course. Good luck on whichever exam you take next.

    Psoasman obviously likes pain.

    294 is difficult one with long tedious questions, like 293 I guess. Keep going with the sec certs if they're easy. Couldn't say as haven't done them.

    I'll admit it took a little while to get warmed up to the 294, but once I did I thought it was an interesting course as it brought a lot of the 290, 291, and 293 material together for me.

    I did them in the wrong order: 290, 294, 291 and now 293. I guess MS structured them accordingly for a reason. Makes sense to learn DNS before AD.

    Man I'm looking forward to finishing this set.

    Heh...you're like me. I started with 291, then 290, 227 (ISA 2000 - the exam was being retired and I wanted to put my training materials to use), 270, 294, 297, and now I have to go back for 293 to finish my MCSE.
