Third time's the charm?

Posts: n/a
Hi Chris,

Best of luck, I am in exactly the same boat
3rd attempt this coming Thursday, 31st.
Not sure what the hell I'll do if I don't get it this
time, waiting another 2 weeks attempting to study the
same stuff again while the free exam attempt is being
offered for the other exams of the MCSA.
?I was unsure of your post, were you able to book the
second shot for free after sitting the 70-290 on your
third attempt?

It's feeling good.

almost 200 pages shorter

material = easier

text for 291 yet. Any

far as 290 goes.
