    I passed the 70-290 exam and it was definitely a very challenging test,
    but I think Micrsoft put together a good exam. I'm not going to go
    into career threatening details, but I liked the format and, after a
    year of working with Server 2003 and Active Directory, I feel it is a
    good test of the real skills you need to manage a Server 2003
    environment.

    For those people preparing for the 70-290, I studied the Microsoft
    Press book for the exam pretty thoroughly, did all of the practice
    tests on the accompanying CD, and I used quickcert.com's instructional
    videos and practice tests (their downloadable text books are pretty
    terrible.) Nothing is going to tell you exactly what the exam will ask
    of you, but putting all of these things together made me feel prepared
    and paid off. I only scored just above the minimum to pass, but
    passing is passing and I'm looking forward to the 70-291 (and finally
    finishing my MCSA).

  2. Congrats and good luck with the 70-291 exam. Take some time to really
    study the services (DHCP, DNS, etc.)

    I found 291 to be very tuff dude, so really make sure you understand the
    concepts.

    I had to do the exam twice to pass it and its a massive relief when you see
    that
    "Congratulation you have passed" spring up!

    Best of luck for the future!

  4. Congratulations!

    I also passed 70-290, the day before yesterday. Now I'm going to start
    studying for 70-291.

    Does anybody know if there is calculator available for 291 and if it is
    scientific?

    Cheers,
    Armand

    worded questions from the boffins at microsoft, but got through it.
