    One left to go before I hit my MCSA2k3 status :)

    Just passed the 70-270 test tonight, I foolishly took the 70-290 first but
    at least it let me test the waters out and see where my skill set was at.

    I think im gonna take a month or two off before taking the 3rd one.

    I just passed my 70-270 today also! Hey quick question, did you find
    the 70-290 harder than the 70-270?

    Hey guys,

    congrats to both of you! It is a good feeling, isn't it?

    70-290 is supposed to be a harder test than 70-270... servers are harder
    than workstations, point finale. Now that it's behind you , what's next?
    Let us know, and good luck with it!

    The 70-290 was harder for me then the 70-270 only because I work as a tech on
    xp client machines on a daily basis so the 70-270 was second nature.

    I think the only reason I passed the 70-290 was the senerio based questions
    since it gives you a chance to see what you are doing, I only started with
    this test because I heard it was harder and I just wanted to see if I could
    handle it.

    Good luck to you on this test!

    my next is the 70-291 but I'm in the middle of a big cisco phone rollout in
    our milwaukee office, after thats done back to the books :)

    Depending how I feel if I do pass the 70-291, I might just take the next few
    to become a mcse but Im not sure yet, studying on my own with a wife and kids
    and now football season... just dont know where to get the time! HA

    Hi,

    I passed 20-270 at the end of June and am now going for 70-290. I took a
    month off study to give my family some time and am now getting back into it
    slowly. Any tips on what to expect on 70-290 would be appreciated.

    I would suggest just doing daily stuff like setting up backup jobs, running
    them, creating user accounts, moving items in activate directory just get
    comfortable doing routine daily activites a server admin would probably be
    doing :) I cant really be specific since that wouuld be in voliation of the
    nda. Best bet would be get an old cheap computer install server 2003 on it
    and just bang away at setting your family up as users, assigning them rights
    and permissions on folders/files, etc (at least thats what I did and it
    worked for me ;)

    I went the same route as you, but I chose to take the 70-290 first because
    the study materials I have for the 70-270 are pre SP2. I have yet to take
    this exam but I am gunning for the 70-291 first anyhow.

    Anyhow, congrats, you are ahead of me!

  9. Hi,

    I sat the 70-210 using the pre sp2 training guide. As long as you've got
    hands on experience with XP sp2 you should be OK. The best way to do the exam
    is to look at the answers take out the ones that are obviously wrong then
    work with whats left. There were a couple of questions in the exam that I did
    not have a idea about, but the majority were ok.
