70-411 Reality check!

Long story short a while back got the booster pack and booked my exam date for this morning.
To be fair I wasn't prepared as much as I wanted, I only went through the MS book and took quickly some notes from Plurasight vids. I was ready to reschedule but then I thought since I got the 4retakes and I already got the day off from work I might as well go and take my chances. I thought I would with a high 5xx or low 6xx...... Well the result was shocking, 383!
The plan was to take it again in a couple of weeks but I don't think that's going to be enough time to make up for the pass.
A lot of GPO and WDS questions. Surprisingly not a lot of PS.
Guess I'll need to find an extra book to study because I'm pretty sure some the material covered on the exam isn't on the exam ref book.

    I had a lot of NPS questions which I hate. I would have loved more GPO and WDS questions.
    The exam is difficult and "Where do you click to" questions really don't help...

    Sorry to hear. The 411 is a really intense exam. You'll do better next time!
    All the best,

    Passed today with 821!!! So happy!
    Got lucky I reckon. I had a much easier bank of questions compared to my first go. Not a lot of NPS like last time and not too many hotspots.
    I reckon I'll have a week off and then focus on the 409! Hopefully book it for January.

    nice. congrats a very high score you have.

    Congratulations! I imagine you'll find the 409 a bit easier to study for. It only took me 5 weeks of study to pass the 409 as opposed to the 11 or 12 I studied for the 410 and 411. It's not necessarily an easy exam, but I think the topics it covers are a lot easier to understand if that makes any sense. Good luck!
    All the best,

    Yeah, I've already watched a bit of the MVA vids and read Orin Thomas guide it looks like it's a much more enjoyable material to absorb. And specific to 2 subjects, hyper-v and system center. I reckon that's why 410 and 411 are so hard. They cover a bit of everything.

    Good job! I've scheduled mine for 20 Dec. NAP is what I'm dreading but going through TechNet, there are a lot fewer cmdlets associated with these tasks as compared to the tasks on the 70-410.
