    I've passed 270, 271 & 272 by self-paced, taking the exams weeks apart. I'm
    about to start studying for 290 & 291.

    And noticed a lot of people in the MCDST newsgroup took both 271 & 272 exams
    on the one day. What is your opinion on studying for 290 & 291? study them
    individually? or study as one big subject and take both exams on the same

    It really depends on your studying style and what works best for you. I
    personally would feel better doing one at a time to maintain focus on the
    task at hand, but YMMV. One concern I would have doing multiple tests in one
    day is that if for some reason you fail the first one, too much doubt might
    creep into your head on the second test. Similar to when a baseball player
    strikes out and thinks about the at-bat too much when he goes out into the
    field next inning, leading to a defensive error. [1]

    googlies, lbws, and other various and sundry cricket terms for the baseball
    references above.

    Personaly, if you can't do them both in a day it would be very surprising.
    Those tests are surprisingly easy.
    It was actually a contest between me a few other MCTS the day both tests
    were available to be taken to see who could do them fastest and still score
    over a 900.

    Just to brag, I won with a combined time of 52 mins.
