Finally passed the 70-411!
First, thanks guys for all of the ideas and encouragement!
I had to take this test FOUR times to get a passing grade of 770! Now it’s on to the 74-409 and MCSA GLORY! I’ve already started building out the lab.
What I used:
- PluralSight Windows Server 2012 R2 (70-411)
- Udemy Administering Windows Server 2012 (70-411) LearnSmart LLC
- Various MS Virtual Academy Videos
- A LOT of labbing and testing at home
- MORE labbing and testing at home
2017 Goals: 70-411 [X], 74-409 [X], 70-533 [X], VCP5-DCV [], LX0-103 [], LX0-104 []

    Thanks all! I appreciate the insight and encouragement on this board. With out it (and employer paid testing) I would have given up on that test a LONG time ago!

    Congrats on the pass! It's a shame that these MS tests are so ridiculous that it takes 3, 4 or more attempts to pass. I'd love to get my MCSE: Private Cloud but I'm just not going to go through all of that. More power to you!
