          Next is 70-270 - which im hoping to book for this friday 3rd july. But depends what my directors come back and say.

          Ive been putting the XP one off for a while, as XP just bores me. Im fairly confident to walk into this exam with no revisions at all, but because i failed the 291 first, ive had my head stuck in the Ms Press Book.

          After the 270, ill do the Vista so i can get my MCSA, ill then do the 293 and the 294 and an elective (not decided which yet) to get my MCSE 2003, i might do the messageing 2003, or go stright for the upgrades to 2008.

          I havnt quite made my mind up yet.

          (i also want to fit the exchange 2007 in somewhere, and the ccna and ccnp, lol, so im gonna be faily busy for a while)

            Why don't you book it sooner to take advantage of the Second shot. I think it runs out in a couple of days.

              Dont try and walk into ANY exam without doing revision. The 270 from what i remember isnt that dissimilar from the 290/291 but it WILL require you're full attention. To fail to prepare is to prepare to fail.

              And take one step at a time. Its nice to be on a roll with exams but make sure you have the accompanying experience and knowledge then the dots start to add up. Remember certifcations are merely enabling tools that allow you to progress your career. They should be seen as nothing more than that.

                Congrats.

                What were the main topics you got E.g. DNS, DHCP, RRAS? Just idly curious, I'll be sitting it next time there's a lull at work, currectly scheduled for November 2011.

                    Thats why i said ive been stuck in the book because i failed the 291 first of all

                    Revisions is the key

                    Also 10 years on the job, im pretty sure i have the experiance - the reason im getting through my certs is for the pay rise which comes with both experiance and the peice of paper

                      If im going to be honest, its was very well shared. all topics roughly 5 or 6 questions. And a simulation to do with DNS and mail mx records. It really didnt seem to focus on one topic over others.

                      Just glad its out the way
