Hey everyone took the 70-410 exams April 9 2014
How was it? I believe you passed... What material you used to prepare? Did the exam had question from R2
The exam was interesting I was really looking to see if there would be dsc and work folders with the other new things but it wasn't so I know the questions I got incorrect.
Let me re phrase I was expecting more R2 questions but there were not much as I expected. My method of study vary I went on scribd and look server 2012 R2 material and downloaded a copy 180 day server 2012 and sleepless nights and long weekends practice can emphasis that any more but in all fairness the test was not difficult the one I got incorrect was me no reading the question correct and not doing enough practice.
Keith Mayer has a very good method of delivery and the labs are concise I just do the social media stuff so some of the material I didn't get as I don't do tweets or facebook or that other media stuff but to each his own.
Well congrats on passing the test... What kind of lab did you setup, and any tips you like to share. I'm in the process of doing this. I been working on a lab but keep running into problems. i read the books but with family and kids it's taking me longer to study plus work.
Hey Louie I know how it is to try and balance a family plus do these exams as I have the same issues you face daily as I too have a family.
I downloaded the 2012 vhd and follow the instructions and attached it and reboot machine with server 2012 as an additional option to boot then I just followed Keith Mayer's labs.
There is also a virtual lab environment provided by holsystems which is details enough for you to get the core concepts.
Once again I know the challenges you face as I too have them just try and stay focus and prepare for sleepless nights.
What is the link to download the 2012 vhd and does it cost anything. Money is always an issue. Thanks
This is a free 180 days trial 2012 Server R2 and Server 2012
All all this issue i'm having at work it makes it harder to learn and remember everything i'm reading. Hopefully I will be able to pass the test. i was thinking of taking it in 3 weeks. Right now about to start reading about Hyper-V just need to figure where I"m going to load i because I'm running my VM on a mac...
Well don't wonder too long as the clock is ticking and I know you can do it as the greatest hurdle is the start as long as you do and stay focus the power is yours captain planet........lol
Yes this Friday i'm going to take the test. but I'm having issue trying to figure out how i'm going to study the hyper-v section since I don't have other machine to do it with. I been doing everything on vmware and virutalbox.
How did you study for that section of the test?
have you ever install server 2012 R2 as the virtual host ?..... if not I don't know how you are going to get the necessary practice log on to mva.microsoft.com with live outlook or Hotmail account and find the section on hyper-V or Keith Mayer blogs.technet.com/.../hyper_2d00_v
don't know how much this will help
Well I took the test and failed ... I got 445 so i'm not to update on the score... I just need to study more..
Would it be a good idea to start all over on the book I got or just work on certain sections ? I know that chart the training center gave me shows my weakness and strong points... but they are even across the board.
