    Default Exam Date.

    Yup - I am sitting my 70-290 Nov. 23...I've been slacking. I can't wait untill I'm done with my MCSA. Then I can focus ONLY on Cisco. Any last suggestion for the 70-290?

    I do not have a psychiatrist and I do not want one, for the simple reason that if he listened to me long enough, he might become disturbed.

    Make sure that you understand your share permissions along with your NTFS permissions and how the work together.

    Also take some time to focus on IIS 6.0, there were a few questions pertaining to that when I took the exam.

    On a Scale from 1-10, with 10 being the hardest, I say 210 was 6. 6 only because I got a lot of questions on installations via RIS, which I hadnt studied all that much. Other than that the test wasnt that bad.

    I had to push it back twice! I was going to write it tomorrow (11/30) but because of meetings had to push it back again. This time 12/6...Its a bummer but I don't mind I guess I can study some more- I'm ready but it can't hurt to study more. I'm actually buying a SEC+ book (Exam Cram2) this week to meet my MCSA & MCSE elective. I will give a good review on the test Monday....hopefully...

    Passed - barely, 724. I honestly Hated this test & can't think of something at the moment I hate more. It was to looooong with drawn out questions, It gave me a headache just reading the questions. They gave me questions like 5 servers & 7,000 users, it just annoyed me. In a regular environment - I knew all the answers. The scenario questions I had a hard time focusing on & some I just flat out read half the question & guessed, I couldn’t take sitting there ( maybe b/c its Monday). If I could have, I would have dragged this test out back of Horizons & put a bullet in it. Anyways Know your permissions, backups, event logs, errors, some VB scripts, RAID levels, IIS & SUS. I studied for about 2 months & crammed hard for a week (Exam Cram2) No practice tests. Be prepared for a long, boring test.

    Congratulations. I have heard that the MS tests have long and boring questions.

    Congratulations!

    Yeah, the 70-292 exam was just like that: long and boring. Much of the info in the questions is just fluff, but you're forced to read it anyway because it might contain a useful detail. I liked the 'sim' questions though...

    Congrats !
    I think that the most important thing on a Microsoft exams is to have patience and to read careful the entire question.

    Yes you do have to have patience for MS tets, just by reading you can eliminate 2 answers bc/ you know they do not belong. If I hated this test that much, I wonder what 70-291 is like??
