    Default Wounded with a 602

    The beast may have won this round, but I will get him next time. I took this exam 5 weeks after taking the 291 and probably rushed a bit and should have waiting another week. Oh well, onto the second shot. I was trying to keep a 5 week pace per exam.

    My weak areas were Server Availability and Security Infrastructure. I kinda wish I didn't reread the 291 stuff and focused on the new material only.

    I used the MS Press Book, O'Reilly's MCSE in the Nutshell, Testout and self test software. You really do need to know everything inside and out from the learning materials and have good experience behind you. I have over 8 years experience and some of the questions asked were beyond me. Perhaps I just have a tough version of the exam...I hope.

    I am going to lab some more and deep dive into technet.

    Passed today on my second try. The two weeks extra made a big difference as well as slowing down and reading the question at my slower than usual pace. Focusing on new material (293 specific) instead of topics learned in 291 helped me.

    Onward to 294 to finish my MCSE 2003. Good luck to those writing 2nd tries this week.

    Congrats fellow "602 on the first attempt" buddy! I was going to retake mine on Thursday, and I've rescheduled it for next Tuesday so I can get more cramming in during the 5 day weekend. Best of luck on 294!
