Hi dude, first of all i need to know where in these world is your country, second, did you take and pass the beast?..

If your answer about the 216 is negative, taking the 221 its an excelent choice to prepare your path to kill the beast, if you already taken it well the 221 will be a peace of cake, there are 4 cases, you have to know your dns, wins, dhcp, ras, and vpn very well.

good luck, and i almost forgot what books did you use for preparing for the 221?

Back in February when I took the 221, the pass mark was 563.  I do not know if that is still accurate.

It did have one of the lowest passing scores of the 2k MCSE exams, it was also my lowest passing margin. This one is a good challenge, but since you have 216 behind you, it will be a tune up. New for this one over 216 are QoS and interoperability topics. Look to the deployment guide and the Resource Kit for these.

That's a very good score for 221! You should be okay for 216.
