So I went and took the 70-411 on the 31st before my voucher expired. I had been studying over my vacation and putting in a fair amount of time labbing here and there on the various topics. I have been using CBTNuggets, the MS Training Guide, Mastering 2012R2 book, and just looking around for stuff as needed on the web. I did better the second time but man this test is killing me. It is the only test that I have ever failed twice. I felt that the 70-410 was pretty easy compared to what this one is. Granted I am more familiar with the topics of the 410 and never use much of the technologies in the 411.

The exam was heavy on AD/GPO and NPS/NAP and covered all the other topics as well but not quite as heavy. I feel like that is sooo much to cover with this exam I am finding it hard to retain it all. There are so many topics that you need to know a lot of detail about otherwise you will not know what the question is asking. I have scheduled my 3rd attempt for the 30th of this month so I will see how it goes. I am gonna be pissed if I don't pass this time.

Good luck anyone who is taking this exam. Hope you have better luck than me.

    I'm currently studying for 411 and yeah I'm thinking there's a lot of content to cover for it.

    How many questions was in the exam ?

    I'm just going to do loads of labbing (after watching cbt nuggets and reading a lot of technets) and hope I have enough covered to get it done.

    Good luck with the re-take, I won't be surprised if I fail on my first attempt at this one.

    It was around 40. When are you planning on taking it?

    Hopefully in the next 2wks once I've got a better understanding of NAP & NPS.

    It has been sinking in and staying more lately. I am sick of studying though and I still have 2 more test after this. Good luck on the 410.

    I failed the 410 twice before I passed it. I failed the 70-680 3 times before I finally passed.

    Stick with it dude, even if you fail a third time. You just keep attacking your weaknesses with each failure, and eventually you piece together a passing score.

    Keep at it. I failed the 70-410 twice before I passed. I also failed the 70-411 once. I missed the mark by 20 points. But since 2nd shot is back, you get a get out of jail free card if that's any consolation. Don't give up!
