And if you run only a single domain controller you probably never had
to deal with directory replication in NT, either. That doesn't mean it
isn't important. The test isn't about what you do at you job, it's
what MS (and others) think you should know about the product. There
are plenty of things you may not have to deal with now, but that are
important to understanding HOW the stuff works. None of the exams are
designed to test what you now about what you do in your job any more
than, say, a spelling test would be limited to words you use every day
(okay, weak analogy, but you get the point).

Then think of how hard it might be to have to deal with thing that are
in Exchange NOW that aren't even covered in the tests! Can you use the
GWART to determine how a message might be routed between sites? Can
you use the MTA MIXER?
