I used the following materials to prepare for the exam:

MVA - Server Virtualization with System Center (Symon Perriman and Corey Hynes)
Youtube especially videos from John Savill
VEEAM exam guide for 74-409 by Orin Thomas
Various clips and modules related to the 70-412 and 70-414 exams by Greg Shields on Pluralsight
System Center Operations Manager 2012 course also on Pluralsight
Other Failover and High Availability courses on Pluralsight

My background:

No experience using SCVMM (or any other System Center components) in production
No experience with Hyper-V before studying for the 70-410 exam
4 weeks to prepare

I had troubles with SCOM even though I watched a course specifically on it. Be sure to have a lot of RAM on your test environment (2 Hyper-V hosts, VMM server, SCOM, DC, etc.)

    Hey, congratulations! I'm currently studying for the 411 and plan on taking the 409 afterwards to complete my MCSA journey! Thanks for listing your study materials. I was wondering what people were using for that one! Good luck on the 411!
    All the best,
    Anderson
