    Default Newbie Questions

    Hi, I am thinking of starting this exam to go for my MCSA. Few questions..

    1. To practice, how many test PCs should you have?

    2. I am A+, Network+, Linux+ and have a degree in Internetworking. Will I find this over my head at all?

    3. If I want to do Vista for my 70-270 equivalent exam. Can I do that? How would that work?

    One computer with a lot of memory so you can use VMWare or Virtual Server, or 2 computers minimum, a client and server. If you can manage it, 2 servers and 1 workstation would be best. Most people opt for a single fast computer and then use VM software to create a couple of servers.

    No, you should be fine. Do you have any experience with servers?

    You got me there. I haven't seen anything official (only beta) exams for Vista yet, and with the new wave of certifications:

    I don't know if they will add Vista as an elective. I haven't checked any of this on MS site though, so I could be wrong.
