Hmm...would agree that the list is fairly well-rounded. What you end up specializing in is a matter of interests which is one of the things I enjoy IT. There are lots of things you can choose to do. You can get into network architecting and realize its just not your thing.

You might consider learning about a scripting language which may help you automate systems administration depending on your environment. Bash, WSH, Perl.  

If you're still interested in notching certifications, consider CompTIA's Security+ or CWNA. In anycase, good luck.

Thats perfect luisjo. This is exactly how to solve the problem because of finding the subnet that will allow for the requested amount of users of 1900. This automatically rules out answers B and C so  now you need to determine between A and D which luisjo has so aptly illustrated. Smiley

Thanks for sharing your thoughts rbnels on the market down in Australia. I have cousins over there, but its been awhile since I spoke to them.

In anycase, you sound off what seems to be more and more the current state of information technology. It is just better to have all your bases covered (college degree, certifications) and have some practice experience even if it means volunteering.

There will be people who disagree that you do not need to have a college degree and they are right. There are companies out there who do not emphasize it. There are also companies out there who do not care about IT certifications. I am finally taking care of loose ends...something I left unfinished a few years back. I am finishing up my Bachelors in Information Technology. I already have been working professionally for a few years as a network administrator for a Fortune 500 company, but sometimes having that degree may open up future doors in terms of upper management positions and that can't be bad in my book.

So I made it out of the testing center alive. I scratched out a 720 score to pass the exam. In all honesty, I fully expected to pass with a wider margin but all in all, success.

The one area that I did not score well on dealt with PKI & EFS section. All the other sections I fared much better on so you can do the math heh. For the most part, this test boils down to knowing GPOs, permissions, RAS with a security slant of course.

There were 50 exam questions with a 2 hour time limit. One thing that can help everyone is to go back and read the questions CAREFULLY. I know I saved a few points doing this.

The two main books I used to study out of are...

1) MCSA/MCSE Windows 2000 Network Security Administration by Bill English (Sybex)

2) MCSA/MCSE Training Kit Implementing & Administering Security in a MS Windows 2000 Network by Matthew Strebe (MS Press)

Onto the next adventure...

Still do because I look back on this site fondly as there were many helpful people here.
6  General discussions / Hardware / Disconnecting DVD Drive on: July 21, 2006, 07:40:51 pm
Two things off the top of my head that you could check into.

1) in the BIOS, check your boot order and make sure your boot hard drive is detected and selected before the disabled DVD drive

2) in some cases, if you simply unplugged the drive but did not change your jumper settings your PC will not boot properly

if drive was set to Master w/ Slave Present (the BIOS will expect to see a Slave present). You may need to set the jumper to Single or Master setting.

Hope this helps...

Congratulations on attaining Network+! Smiley
Keeping up with certifications is also like keeping up with the IT industry. There is so much information. Welcome aboard heh.
8  CompTIA / A+ forum / Motherboard shutdown & Restart!!! on: July 02, 2006, 01:36:27 am
Could be all sorts of issues that would cause the pc to reboot and since there isn't too much detail, I am going to guess here. (At what point does the machine spontaneously reboot?) old PIII 1.0GHz processor and motherboard, I am thinking it might be a heat issue associated to dust buildup. When was the last time you cleaned out the innards? Get rid of the dustbunnies around the heatsink/proc area and fans, it might do the trick. G'luck!

You hit the biggest part on the with the hammer. The most important thing is whether or not the company's network is already on Win2003. If so, you're going to obviously need to convince them your knowledge of 2000 can easily transfer to Win2003.

Certifications are gravy when it comes to the overall package you bring. I think if you are attempting to hire on with a tech company, they would note the difference between MCSA2000 and MCSA2003.

Ultimately, it will come down to your personality, work ethic and whether they believe you will be an asset with the company. Good luck!

Sounds like you were right there. A bit more studying and a ton of practice questions always help.

If its possible, head out to a Barnes & Noble, grab a 70-218 book that has review questions and go through them. I have done this before heh.
11  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MCDST / I Passed the 70-272 on: May 26, 2006, 08:05:56 pm
This comes a bit late, but congratulations on passing 70-272! Smiley
I think your post happened around the time the site went 'wonky' heh.
12  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / MCDST / passed 072-271 on: May 26, 2006, 08:03:16 pm
Congratulations on the pass! Smiley
13  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows XP exams / notched 70-270 on: May 26, 2006, 07:49:40 pm
Woohoo! I past this test with a score of 936 with a couple months of studying. I don't think I have ever felt more confident on an MS test (well maybe the MCDST exams heh).

Truth be told, this is my second attempt at the test, but I still remember the many words of encouragement including from Freak. That was a long time ago and I simply decided to move onto other exams. I finally came back to it to finish it off.

In anycase, the book resources used were:
1) MSPress 70-270 Self-Paced Training Kit 2nd Edition by Walter Glenn and Anthony Northrup.

2) Mike Meyer's 70-270 Certification Passport by Brian Culp.

My test consisted of 58 questions, all multiple choice. There were quite a few questions focusing on Windows Firewall and. Some questions on GPOs, NTFS/Share permissions, 'Last known good' and troubleshooting network configuration issues. Overall, the MSPress book is a solid book to review for the exam.
14  CompTIA / A+ forum / Where have all the threads gone on: May 26, 2006, 07:34:59 pm
Agreed. This website was certainly a hotbed of activity in years past and would whole-heartedly agree that there was plenty of quality help available here. The recent issue of having all the threads disappear, spammers and slow traffic has made this site a shadow of what it used to be.

Still, there are some diehards around so don't hesitate to ask your questions. It just might take a day or two.
15  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-215 / Notched 70-215! on: March 24, 2006, 01:12:50 am
With a little over a month of book studying and combined with my experience with Windows 2000 Server OSes, I was able to pass my this exam. Pulled out a score of 805 which is a little low imo, but its a pass.

Looking at the sectional results I scored better in the areas I thought myself to be weak on and scored worse in areas I believe myself to be strong in.

I think I psyched myself out. I must have paid more attention to questions concerning group policies, RRAS and troubleshooting storage use, access to resources and took for granted networking and security questions.

In anycase, I used...
1) MCSA/MCSE Self-Paced Training Kit: Microsoft Windows 2000 Server (2nd Edition)

2) Mike Meyers' MCSE Windows 2000 Server Certification Passport (Exam 70-215)

Happily, I didn't need to use my second chance exam but it is nice knowing its there for me. I'm only 1 exam away from MCSA and I don't anticipate any issues with passing the 70-270 test. I should be ready to take it at the end of April or early May.
