As per my previous post, Where has Todd been Hiding? I wrote 70-294 – Planning, Implementing, and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Infrastructure. I found the self-paced Study guide and practice tests with the book a good resource to study with. I had also participated in the OWSUG study group for 70-294, wrote and passed the 71-640 (AD on 2008) beta exam and work with the topics that the exam covers. I was pretty prepared for this exam and as a result, passed the exam. I found there was a lot of reading on this exam, more than I had experienced on the previous 290-series exams.
My next exam is booked for August 14th and is the 70-297 – Designing a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory and Network Infrastructure exam which is the last exam I need for my MCSE. For this one I need to do some serious prep work for as I believe this is an exam based on case studies. You get a case study, then you need to answer questions on that case study, then on to next case study. I will be using the Microsoft 70-297 self-paced study kit and the Microsoft e-learning courses to help me prepare for this exam. As I study, I may post some questions from the various chapters as I go along, like Garth is doing for the 70-298 exam on OWSUG.ca.
