  • Passed 70-297; Add one more MCSE to the group

    This morning I passed the 70-297 Active directory design exam. I've never worked for a place that utilized sites, mucked about with replication or was upgrading from NT 4 (I know... boring professional life, no? ) so much of my knowledge in those areas is theoretical. Having said that make it easier to understand why my score was 700 on the dot. Talk about cutting it close. Nonetheless, I am now a newly pressed Paper Tiger... I mean... MCSE 2003.

    Next on the docket is working on the MCITP:Enterprise Administrator for which I'm two exams removed from. I'll probably take the 70-647 as my next exam. BTW, I had already passed many of the server 08 exams before earning the MCSE 2003 so the upgrade exam wouldn't be of much benefit to me. I'll probably be using my yummy Train Signal videos to prepare for that as well as the equally yummy Transcender exams (the vouchers for which was also gifted to me by Train Signal... woot!). I hope to get that done sometime in early August. Until then...

        That's the sticky wicket. I've never been able to nail down what exactly is and is not okay to reveal. It seems that it depends on which MSFT person you speak with... much like issues involving more complicating licensing problems. I'm trying to find the contact info for someone that I met who works directly in the testing department. Maybe I can get some answers from her. (Liberty Munson, are you out there?)

                        Yesterday you couldn't spell Injunere and now you is one.

                        Congratulations Wesley and as suggested above, change the signature to reflect you newly hard earned status.

                          I'll do it as soon as cruachan does his. Maybe by then I'll have my MCITP:EA.
