Passed 70-270 today. Score of 936.

A lot more Windows Firewall than I expected, but all is well!

Let's move on to server now!

Hello there

Wow! Done a great job. Now it is my turn to score that much as you have. I tried the Microsoft Press books and found them to be good.

The Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 is best that mainly focusses on security features and tactics, and the advanced testing techniques are  better .

I think Windows firewall is just easy than the heavy explosion of securing the POP and IMAP with SSL .

What is your next step now ??
Now for me 70-270 is just heavy stone on my head.

Hope for the best

My next step is going towards the 2003 Server (70-290) test. I've start reading the MS Press book and find it somewhat of a hard read due to lack of pictures and examples that help explain the material. Sometimes I need to look at a picture to get the full benifit of what's going on or I find myself looking at several resources.

I plan on reading through it and then going back and doing the labs to refresh myself. I'll finish up with Transcenders and a few online study guides.

I'm looking to sit the test by the end of the year. Which gives me abournd 5-6 weeks of preparation.
