Title: Passed 70-214 today, no problems!
Post by: l9nux on March 25, 2004, 11:21:39 AM
I passed 70-214 today, although I had the flu and felt like I was dying!

Study Tips:

If you've done 70-220 as an elective then you'll have no problem with this one. This doesn't mean that you don't need to study extra material though.

Make sure you understand IPSEC / L2TP and PPTP. Learn how you'd allow this through a firewall.

Make sure you understand where servers should be placed with firewalls. On the DMZ (perimeter), internet or intranet (private) side?

I got a lot of questions of Certificates and I feared this the most as it's my weak point having no real experience with it.

Other topics included:

Wireless security; understand about ad-hoc mode, closed network mode (turning off SSID broadcasts), and the different standards 802.11 and 802.1x

This certainly wasn't the most difficult exam, but it does focus on security on a broad range as it also had questions on NTFS and share permissions.

Finally, understand GPO, loopback processing mode, and trusts!!


I hope this is helpfull to anyone wishing to take this exam.

It was a 2 hour exam, and the passing score was 700. I got 826.

At the end of the exam it also gives you a breakdown of each section, with a scale from "Needs development" to "Strong".

The sections were:

1) Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Baseline Security

2) Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Service Packs and Hotfixes

3) Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Secure Communication Channels

4) Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Authentication and Remote Access Security

5) Implementing and Managing a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Encrypting File System (EFS)

6) Monitoring and Responding to Security Incidents.
