GWJ IT Certifications Catch-All - (MCSE/MCTS/MCITP/CCNA/CCNP, etc!)
I'm getting into gear and finally getting the energy and motivation to fill in my certs a bit more. I already have a job in IT, but I'd like start getting some more credentials to move to some different teams (Tier 3) within the year.
I figured I'm only two tests shy of my MCSA 2003 so I might as well knock those off. After that I was thinking of skipping the full MCSE and hitting some Server 2008 certs to stay somewhat fresh and relevant for the work we're starting to take on.
I'm going through 70-291 now and just wondering who else has taken it. I've been drilling DNS/DHCP/IPSEC/RRAS and more into my head, most of it is sticking, but it's quite the range of topics to cover. Browsing the tech forums, this test is lovingly known as The Beast, with lots of people saying it's taken them multiple times.
I've been going heavily into the CBT Nugget videos for this series, as well as E-Learning courses at work. I've also setup VMWare and a couple 2003 Servers and XP Clients so I can break them as I see fit (bwahahahaah). I still need to pick up an official textbook at some point, but that stuff is pretty dry to go over.
So.. any recommendations on this test? My subnetting is down pat, I do a few questions daily from www.subnettingquestions.com daily to get my brain into that frame of mind. I'm getting quicker, but it's practice, practice, practice.
Thanks for the advice in advance!
