The objective is to get a cumulative total of 50EXP in a single gametype. You can track which gametype you have the most EXP on in your game summary by pressing start in your lobby to view your records. Mine, for example, currently (as of 3/29/09) says I have 52EXP for Rocket Race halfway down on the main screen where you have 3 options on your left (view service record, etc).

I think the quickest way to get this achievement is to play double exp on the weekends with a "rocket race" if you are lucky enough to encounter the gametype on a particular weekend. That's how I got mine, and I think anything else (like slayer, king, etc) would take a lot longer to get, especially if you don't come in 1st or 2nd place very often.

Just because it's quick (IF you win 25 matches, meaning coming in 1st place) doesn't mean it's easy! It can take as many as 25 matches (if you came in 1st 25 times), 50 matches (if you came in 2nd place 50 times), or evern 100 matches if you don't get 1st or 2nd place every game so it can take you awhile! Anyway here's the scoop if you play any Double EXP game: 1 win (1st place) = 2EXP; 2nd place = 1EXP.

It's not easy because there are many times where you will be paired with a team-mate that will either quit out on you for no reason at all or flat out act stupid and run around trying to kill people you can't really even kill (unless you assassinate someone but it's too much effort really).

To avoid EXP penalties for quitting early, I strongly recommend baing patient and to just stick with these matches until someone wins and just try again with a different group. Otherwise, you previous efforts would be wasted and you would be spending more time than you need to try to pair up with someone good.

I was lucky enough to meet 2 people who were GREAT team-mates and helped ensure I was in 1st or 2nd place whenever I was paired up with either of them. When you find good people who are willing to help you out and/or pair up with you for dominations, then be sure to party up with them so that you will always be paired together to ensure a win the majority of the time. I'd say 80% of this Rocket Race involves LUCK of finding a good team-mate, and 20% is your skill at driving and/or shooting rockets at the other mongoose's to keep them off course if you are the VIP.

I personally found this one easy to get but just time consuming. I assume it would be even more time consuming if you stick to your favorite gametype that happens to not be featured on a double EXP weekend yet. Good luck!
