    Hello everyone,
    I am curious if anyone has taken all three of these exams. I was
    another 70-292 casulty this week and and I am thinking it will probably
    be a more worthwhile to go the 70-291 and 90 route instead of just the
    292.

    I scored 628 on the 292. Studying for this exam I used CBT Nuggets, a
    test lab, along with experts exchange and technet to research certain
    things. I read the Sybex book the entire way through about a year ago
    and referred back to it a few times during my preparation for this
    exam. I refuse to use braindumps, test king or anything of that nature.

    My main question is, given my score on the 292 what are my chances of
    passing the 291? I am really not all that against taking an extra test
    but I have read a lot of horror stories about people failing the 292
    multiple times.

    If my chances of passing are about the same, what study aids should I
    be using? What are closest to the test? (I feel I may have to relearn
    a few things microsoft way as I was fairly confident in pretty much all
    of my answers on the test.)

    Since the 292 didn't give me an explanation of my weak areas what are
    some common ones and what should I focus on?

    I took 292 in Feb 2004 and then 290 and 291 in May of 2004

    My company needed the 2003 accreditation and I already had 2000 MCSE
    then they paid for me to attend a full-on 2003 MCSE course. I checked
    with MS and they said I could take 292 and 296 then take 290,291, 293
    and 294 later if I wanted!!!!!

    The easier was the 292 although 290 and 291 were about the entire
    syllabus not just the deltas (292)

    Could you pass the 290 and 291 without extra study - no.

    290 and 291 need extra study. Funnily some of the questions from 292
    appeared in my 290 and 291 exams!

    Can I suggest that if you failed 292 that you put down the tesskings
    and start studying?
