    Default Passed 70-293 this AM

    I am glad this one is over. WOOT WOOT! Finished quickly with a descent score. Used CBT Nuggets, MS Press Training Kit, Testout, and Transcender. I had a ton of Sims, make sure you lab out PKI! (let me know if this violates the NDA)...

    I am scheduled for the 2 Windows 7 beta exams for early Oct as a break. And I plan to take the CEH course at the end of Dec. I have 294 & 298 to finish my MCSE out by the end of the year. Any recommendations as to what may be the best route?

    Congrats, hoping to be doing this one next week. Was it a long and boring test?

    hehe... you could say that. it was challenging, but i work in a HA & PKI enviornement, and did alright on the 291, so i think i had a little advantage. i am a self diagnosed ADD geek, so the hour i was in the room seemed like days!

    thanks murdatapes, looks like you have 293 & 294 under your belt. What are you going for now 297 or 298? would you reccomend skipping ahead or going to the 294?

    I am currently study for the 299 exam, and hopefully take 298 the same day. I'm coming back to the Win7 exam after I try to knock out the MCSE. I'm just to close to stop and move on to something else and then come back.

    I like to stay in order as much as I can to build on from the last studying material. I'm going the security route (70-351) after a hopeful pass on the 299 and 298 so that's why im going with 298.

    But yeah, IMO i would stay the course. Let's us know what you decide.

    Congrats on your pass! Do the 294 next, then hit 299 / 298 as they bring it all together.

    How do you actually "lab out" PKI...? Do you need a seperate machine? Or virtual? Please explain

    Thanks

    just use virtual. Pick up MS Virtual PC (its free), create a default install to work with and copy out as many .vmc's (the virtual machine files) as you need for additional machines.

    Then, setup your network, setup a complete PKI infrastructure. You can go nuts and have a very complicated, multi-subnetted network as you like only limited by the power of your machine. You can access the internet with it for your DNS topics and and route back through to it for RRAS examples (though routing back into your virtual environment may require some additional work arounds).

    Point is, you can simulate a complete test network for anything you may study.

    Virtual PC is limited, so in cases where you would like to be more complex, you can always use VM-ware or other like products.

    edit:

    Also note that in some cases, if you are careful you can even drop a virus on your virtual network and toy with how you would deal with it in the safety of its environment.
