    Thanks!

    I have worked with Windows 2003 for a while now, so I took my hands-on experience with me to the test and not much else. However, my co-workers recommend reading this book:

    Microsoft 70-290 book

    Also, if you have the resources at home, download some trial versions of Windows 2003, install virtualization software (virtualbox is freeware software that you can use), install Windows in the virtual environment, and practice using Remote Desktop, Windows Backup, Terminal Services, IIS, Active Directory setup & maintenance (specifically user/group account creation, file permissions, etc). Hand-on experience with these topics is important, because there will be some simulation questions that will require you to know how to do these tasks. Hope that helps!

    I studied from MS Book, no lab work, did some tests before exam with 50% success, and I passed with 724. Took me 2 weeks of learning, 1-2 hours a day. Note, that I worked with Windows Server 2003 only for a couple of month in the past, was doing some Active Directory management and daily Troubelshooting.

    Now I'm preparing to 291, heard that it's harder then 290, so I ordered Transcender Exam kit, hope this helps.

    Tribe Menx - if i remember, we did our vista ones at the same time last month, looks like we will be hitting the 290 at the same time too. Mine is scheduled for 6th July. Good luck!
