    He should be trying to find out if you know how to get the right answers. Obviously you should know how to do basic RCA and/or you should remember some regular occurring errors (dup SID's on net) but to remember a specific error is kinda silly. If you know how to get to the event log and troubleshoot errors, he should be happy.

    It should be more interactive and can demonstrate how to do this stuff rather than answering questions in a conversation.

    Sounds like you are getting closer though ;-)

    Getting really close guys.
    I'm getting calls in for final interviews. I have two this week. As you can imagine, I'm a nervous wreck. Thankfully, landing interviews with the IT managers have given me insight as what to expect, question wise.
    Funny enough, most of them are networking, dhcp and dns questions. One manager the other day gave me a VLSM scenario on the fly and before he could even finish asking his question I already knew the answer. I think he was going easy on me though, it was very easy to spot the issue.

    Wish me luck guys. I did what you suggested and am only going after tier 1, desktop support positions.

    One question though - I get asked this all the time - they ask me how much money I'm looking for. I seriously do not know the answer. I'm green as hell. So I'm baselining it at $35,000. Is that too low? They look at me as if I should be asking for more, and I'm not too sure I should since I lack experience.
