Passed 74-409 today with 800 points!!

It was my first Microsoft exam. :D

I have 3 years in IT working with infrastructure and help desk (1 year managing Hyper-V). Had never touched System Center.

Resources I've used:
  • The MVA course (watched it like 3 times).
  • Orin Thomas PDF Veeam guide.
  • Technet virtual labs (these were great to learn Cluster and System Center).
  • VMware Workstation (so I could use nested virtualization to test Hyper-V).

Had many questions about Ops Manager. The MVA was not good for this topic.

Time studying: 4 weeks of intense study icon_study.gif

Guess I will study for 70-410 now!

    i Definitely enjoyed the MVA course. In fact, there's actually TWO courses (both taught by the British dude, but one is for R2).

    Can you elaborate more on the technet labs? How it all works. How much it costs, etc?
