I booked my next exam! 70-236!

November 19, 2007

The above is exactly why I have not been posting much here on the good old blog. I’ve been studying quite hard for the last 2 months or so for the MS 70-236, Configuring Exchange 2007.

I haven’t taken an MS exam in over two years, the last one being taken in Phoenix, AZ. I took the 70-270 then, hoping to jump on the MCSA train. Well, the train derailed and I got lazy.

My new job wanted me to get certified quickly in Exchange 07. First is the 236, then onto the 237 (Designing Messaging Solutions) and 238 (Deploying Messaging Solutions). After passing the 236, I will be an MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technical Specialist). Sounds important, huh? After the 237 and 238, I will be an MCITP: Enterprise Messaging Administrator. Even more important!

Let’s just say I’ll be glad when it’s all over. These are tough exams to study for. With the introduction of new server roles, Powershell, etc, Exchange 07 has really evolved from Exchange 2000 and 2003.



  1. Good luck – I know the light blogging feeling – I’ve been studying for my mcse/a on a nightly basis for about 2 hours. Only got one left for mcsa 70-290 and it’s tough, especially when the book is going on about kerberos and says “and this is where it gets really interesting…” and I’m trying to stay awake and wonder if I’d ever need this in real life.
    I’m also about to start my first e2k7 experience – upgrading from exchange5.5 so that will be a real eye opener!

  2. You can’t ‘upgrade’ to Exchange 2007, per se… you can only forklift or migrate.

  3. Hello!
    i need a little bit of help from you. Can you please send me the training kit for 70-236? i need it because i want to obtain the MCTS as well and after that i will see about the next certs.

    If you are willing to help me, please send me the pdf self training kit to the following address: coltz1979@hotmail.com.

    Thank you in advance and good luck for the future exams
