Hi,

Is anyone currently studying for this exam?

I've just started to study it I notice that this forum is not very active.

Im not sure at this point how far Im going to take my study of security but for now I think it's worth while learning about because these days security is in every IT workers interest not just the security specialist within an organisation.

I hope to see this thread become more active.

:)

Hi,

I have just started studying for this exam.  And I came here to see what everybody else is writing.... which looks like bugger all!!

Shame, I would have thought this might have been busy.

I took this exam and I can recommend that the book that I used was the exam cram 2 book. The exam was fairly easy. Make sure you know IPSEC, Group Policies, PKI, and SUS. I work with security everyday so I didn't look at the book for 3 months before I took the exam. Just make sure you know those topics and you will be good.

My plan.  

Well I have got the CBT Nuggets for 70-214 and I am currently working my way through all the information.  The exam doesn't look as hard as I thought it would be.

Basically I am just gonna study, study and study.

I will probably try and take the exam before xmas.

Just noticed that you are an MCSA working on MCSE (+sec I assume) then your Citrix CCA same path as me for starters ;)

Yeah, I agree these exam topics seem not so hard so far.

The security+ exams looks like it would be interesting to study.

I wasn't particularly planning on MCSE + Security as I only need 2 exams for the MCSE and I think I need 3 exams for the + Security.... but I could probably get the MCSA + Security.

Same situation as me, I just need 2 exams for MCSE
70-214
70-220

Is the exam path Ive decided on

Then all I need to do is CompTIA Security+ for MCSE+Sec and MCSA+Sec

Then I'll do the 2 upgrade exams for 2003 and that also keeps the +sec specialisation
(but I think I will do Citrix CCA before the upgrade of MCSE/MCSA to 2003)

I am just planning to get my 2000 MCSE then concentrate on other certs such as Citrix.  

I don't really need MS certs for my job so I am in no rush to upgrade to 2003.  

Before you ask, I started my MS certs before I started at this job, I just want to finish what i started.
