I haven’t updated you all for a while, but in that time I have completed Microsoft exam 70-290. This ended up being quite a lot simpler than I had originally anticipated. I am currently studying for two more exams. 70-291, which is Microsoft Windows 2003 Networking, and 70-284, which is Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 configuration. I have been attempting the practice exams and reading the MSPress books, and am relatively confident.
I have scheduled both of these exams for the same day, which will make the day a very long one. If I manage to pass both then that will give me MCSA: Messaging Specialist status. I can then focus on the remaining 3 exams to get my full MCSE certification.
I hope to get around to completing my Novell CNA exam at some point soon as well. Or once I have the MCSE I might concentrate on the Cisco CCNA. This will give me the required certification level in order to work overseas.
There are still 2 weeks until the exams, so time to start cramming as much study as I can in.
