    Hi Denis,

    This may sound harsh, but if you can't get your head around DNS then you
    should stop trying to advance until you get around it. DNS is the root of
    all evil, but it is also the backbone of most every technology that touches
    Windows Servers and the Internet. If the books aren't helping you I would
    post on your local user group website that you would like to hire someone to
    tutor you on it until you get it.

    Not getting DNS and wanting to be an IT Professional is like trying to be a
    kangaroo... you can put on a costume and hop around, but you will never rear
    joeys.

    I suspect that once you do get DNS - you do not have to be an expert for
    70-290 but you do have to get it - then you can try again and something tells
    me you'll like the results.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes!
