    At the end of the video James Seymour hopes that everyone takes 70-410 stating it's the 2nd exam in towards MCSA - shouldn't he state 70-411? :-)

    It's really too bad the 2012 R2 versions of the official Microsoft Press books are not slated to be released until 4-5 months after the R2 material is being included on the exams.
