  • Failed 224

    Just to let you guy's know i failed 224 today.

    Really not impressed with myself.

    I work with and administer exchange everyday studied for a wee bit and thought i would breeze it. Damn was i wrong. That was quite a hard exam that i should've studied alot harder than i did for it.

    Leason learned.

    You are at least very honest and I'm congratulating you for that. Many wouldn't even bother to admit something like that. Nothing wrong with that, just go one more time through that and you will be fine. I used to be High School teacher, once upon a time, and I was allways telling to my students "it isn't wrong to get bad mark, the bad thing is not to fix a bad mark". I failed 70-216 twice but I fixed it from third attempt and that is, life isn't that easy and we had only one Einstein, everything else is only work and work.
    I'm 45 years of age and I'm still pushing to get MCSE, missing just the one you failed, and I hope to get it very soon. All the best for you and next shot is yours.

    Have happy holidays.

      This may be an Urban Legend, but I read about 2 Exchange Admins sitting the exam. One had been an Exchange Administrators for 2 or 3 years and the other less than 6 months. The newbie studied hard while the experienced one didn't, after all he knew all about Exchange and how to troubleshoot and fix problems under pressure. As I'm sure you've worked out, the newbie passed and the experienced guy didn't. Problem was the newbie supplied the Microsoft answers and his colleague supplied the real world solutions to the presented problems. Cisco, I believe are the same, there is the right way and then there is the Cisco way. (As told to me by a CCIE)

      I'm sure you will nail it next time Wullie.

        Sorry to hear that. I failed 1 back when I began taking exams for an NT MCSE around 5 years ago. I learned my lesson too. I might as well have sparked a doob with $100 bill - at least that way MS wouldn't have profitted in the process

                Well done Wullie!! I assume that when you say you were breaking servers, it wasn't by head butting them.

                More beer I am going to miss out on!! Why don't all you buggers live in a Australia. "Where the bloody hell are you?!!"

                    Thanks guy's.

                    Biggles, i think i did headbut them a few times when i was falling asleep. No actually it was when i kicked them as it wasn't working the way i wanted it to.

                    I'm coming to Oz next year for a holiday m8 so if your near Brisbane i'll get you a beer.
