  • Passed 70-646

    I just passed the 70-646 (MCITP:SA) exam with a score of 962 points.
    It was not that hard however I continue lost my concentration due to construction workers.

    The test center just moved away to an other building so
    Anyhow I've passed it and I'm happy with it.

    But due to recent business changes I've changed my course a bit.
    Next stop Exchange 2007 instead of CCSP and CCNP:

    Well done Marcell and good passing score. I'm MCITP: EA but will be taking 70-646 in a couple of weeks time. I've passed the 70-236 exam for Exchange and just have the 2 left as you mention below.

    How did you revise? I have practical experience and I am using the Microft Training Kit to prepare for the exams apart from 70-238, as there doesn't seem to be one.

      Re: Passed 70-646

      I've only read the book for 70-646 and that was actually enough for me.
      However there were some things where I'm not good at like SAN's and so.

      View things you might review:
      Storage chapters and clustering. At my exam these where the hardest subjects.
      Other things like WSUS, NLB, GPO's and so on well... I've a lot of experience in those subjects
      DFS wasn't that hard either. Actually most things I simply could rule out.

            Another exam vanquished! Yes, the 646 is easy. Too easy, if you ask me. I passed the beta with literally just a few hours of hands-on tinkering with the Server 2008 RC many months prior to the exam.

            I can sympathize.

            Wow! Go Marcel! I know that you've said that you don't know much about Exchange so it'll be neat for you to master yet another Microsoft technology. I'll be aiming for the MCITP:EMA starting in this summer, so you can blaze the trail ahead of me.

                    Re: Passed 70-646

                    Exchange 2007 seems to be a bit like 'marmite'. You either love it or you hate it. I personally prefer it but other colleagues of mine detest it as it is more wizard driven, should you use the GUI.

                    Thanks for comments regarding how you trained.

                    Sounds as if I should be ok.

                        I bet you could wallpaper your entire house with all of your MS certification papers. I think I almost have a dozen and I'm nowhere near as certified as you. I should make some origami pieces out of them all...

                          And still I've heard that I'm not certified enough during job interviews.
                          I've heard that they expected that I'm a CCNP and/or CCSP as well... Or VCP or whatever.

                            Certs are nothing without experience mate, I would push that side of things as you clearly have loads! For me CCNA was the best cert even in a Windows environment although the MCSE certainly helped. I'm going to do your ISA 2004 exam soon if I can...
                            Congrats so far

                              Yeah I know... But try convincing the managers with that.
                              My CCNA training lasted about 25 days. Heavy training though I haven't used Cisco since
                              However the training was so intensive that when I need to I can pick it up quite fast
