    Default Passed 293

    Hello all,

    I passed my 70-293 yesterday. Within one week I passed my 70-291 and 293.
    Back in May I failed the 291 and within 6 weeks on failing the 291 I failed another 2 times. Was VERY annoyed with myself and the 70-291 felt like a big obstical I just couldn't get over.

    Anyway was so annoyed that I went onto do the 293 and found that I lot of the topics mentioned in the 293 Microsoft Press book are covered in the 291 and also the Network+ exam. Does anybody else agree with this?

    Anyway after going through the book and CBT Nuggets for the 293 I also went got back into the 291. Anyway passed the 291 with 822 with 9 sims and passed the 293 with 802. Not to sure how many sims there were on the 293 as they were spread out through out the exam unlike the 291 were they were all in one block of 9 questions.

    I owe a lot of the 293 to the CBT nugget videos as the Microsoft Press book alone does not cover all the material needed to pass the exam. As I imagine the exam has been upated alot more often in recent years as the Press book has.

    Had a lot of CA permissions, RRAS, GPO, IPSEC and Cluster questions.
    The sims are pretty much straight fowards I think. Easier than the 291 sims anyway...

    Something that I have always wondered about the Sims, Do they mark you down for going into area of the sim that is not active for that simulation question? When you do this a pop window appears saying "This feature is not available in this simulation". Do you get marked down for going into this area?

    Anyway I have blabbed on a bit now. Going to start the 294 exam starting net week.

    Whats funny/sad is that I've spent the first 100 pages of my book reading about Network+ stuff (types and speeds of cables, topologies, ect) and yet you never hear anyone say that stuff is on the real test.

    I'm finally just getting to the DNS section, but I never really hear anyone mention that for the test.

    One of these days I'll finish the book and go take the test.

    Congratulations!

    I have been studying the 291 since around January and the 293 since May / June so it's not like I studied for both Exams within a week lol

    Starting the 294 today!
