    Default Finally Passed!

    Well after one fail and months of putting study aside, I finally got through this one. I got a 733 which is not great, but it's nice to have it out of the way. This may be the hardest subject matter in the MCSE course due to the difficulty in labbing the clustering and PKI aspects.

    I relied on the MS Press book and Readiness Review the first time around and was not prepared. I bought the SelfTest exam after that and it did a much better job. I also labbed a ton of stuff at home. I now have a functioning PKI on my home network!

    I guess it's on to the 297... unless I get really bored and decide to torture myself with the 298!

    Congrats on getting this one passed. You're right about the clustering /PKI aspect. I couldn't lab it myself and sat the exam not really knowing enough about the subject. Makes it difficult.

    The good thing was the simulations were fairly simple. There were 7 and I am confident I got all of them right. I don't think I can say that for the other exams I have taken.
