I am now feeling very giddy at being MCSA Windows 10. I would say this exam was equally as difficult as 70-697 but there was no cloud stuff obviously which is harder to practice with. I purchased the 4 exam retake option but I passed first time. Scored 862.
I risked it this time by not purchasing Transcender or MeasureUp. I didn't do any practice exams at all.
I studied for two months and used CBT Nuggets (72 videos) and ITDVDS (254 videos).
I also read the Exam Ref Book (three days before the exam, I flicked through it three days.
It's blooming hard work this is !
