    I have to take the 70-290 and 70-086 (SMS) exams for work. Which one should I
    take first? I have never taken a MS exam before so pleasea advise.

  2. I'd recommend 70-290. Although I never have taken 70-086, I think 290 will
    be a good base for the exam.

    Thank you. That's what I was thinking but I have heard how tough the 290 is
    but I guess it's about the same as the 086.

    Which book is recommended for the 290? We have Transcenders so I will be
    doing that.

  5. Use MS Press, it's fine for 290. I don't know how tough 70-086 is, but
    70-290 is pretty easy, except for dumb people. Dumb people don't do well,
    unless they cheat. Are you a cheater? I don't think so, but we'll be
    watching you...

    Sybex have been my friend but I also like to recommend people go through
    the MOC for the exam (courses 2273, 2274, 2275). You should take the
    instructor lead courses from me too as it will help pay for my kids

    (and definitely take the 290 BEFORE SMS)

  8. Yeah, that's not my e-mail, but adjusted anyways.

    Well if you ever aspire to become an MCNGP, I suggest that you DO post a
    real, munged e-mail addy. I hate bounced e-mails. This goes not just to
    you, but other posters in this here froup who might one day aspire to
    achieve the only true, elite certification in IT.
