If you haven't got the book by now, forget it. You might as well put you head between your legs and kiss your XXX good-bye. You ain't gonna pass!!

I just scheduled to take the exam on December 31, at 12:15

Yes, basically the last possible moment.  all the testing center where i live are booked, the latest i could take it would the 27th, i have to drive 2 hours to take the test, but it's worth it, for the extra days.  

Any Last Minute Study tool suggestions?

Thanks in Advance...

Hey congrats DealSpree.com.

So, what did you finally decide to use to study after all the "helpful" suggestions?

Obviously whatever it was worked well!

Wow MCSE NT4 in 14 days? What did you use to study for that one?

Good luck on the next one!:)

Well I read the Osborne book for the exam 1600 pages.  then set a schedule to read about 160 pages a day, and then with 4 days left, i read cramsession studdy guide, and did practice tests...

that's how i passed the exam...

by the way the test administrator yelled at me, because i took a break after each section, (i.e. got out of my seat, and walked into the office)  She said it was unusual for anyone to take 3 breaks.  and told me to go back inside and sit down.

i think it helped in clearing my head, because looking at the screen so long is a strain on the eyes....

Now i dont want to take the design exam until i figure things out, like which would be best....

I want to do the exam that will qualify for the MCSA, but i don't know how that will work...

So i may get my CCNA in the meantime, I graduate in 6 months w/ my MIS degree, and want to put myself ahead of my fellow grads...

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated...

Hey great! Just out of curiosity, what did you think of the Osborne accelerated text?

I think that one of the problems with studying for all these exams is, there is sooo much info out there, but hard to tell which ones are reliable and useful. So many have errors etc.

Seemed like there were more reliable sources out there for the NT4 track at least as far as texts went. Of course hands on experience always applies too.

Yea CCNA is nice too. I plan to hit that after I am finished getting up to spedd on Win2K.

Anyway, good luck with whatever is next.:)
