Mastering Windows Server 2012 R2 exam coverage

Would it be a good book to start 410?

Does the information go beyond the scope of 410?

Any thoughts on how it compares to other books specifically written for the 410 exam?


Thanks.

    Its a good book in general. I know some who have used it to pass. I would say that it is not intended for test takers and more of a general knowledge of Windows Server. I've used it as a reference book to skim over from time to time but focused on the more exam-centric books.

    This is, of course, just my opinion. I know others who have passed using the Mastering book.

    Thanks for the info, I'll probably use an exam book as well then.

    Hello Wastedhat
    I think it is a good book. But you should not limit yourself to that unless you have a lot of hands on experience with server 2012 R2. I am studying for the exams myself and i would like Poolmanjim to tell us a bit about what materials he uses to pass the certification.

    Thank you

    Not to sound like a knob but there are numerous 70-410 passed topics where the OP lists what materials they used to pass the exam.

    Sorry to miss your reply. Just saw it today. Forgive me if I don't want to type it all again. Here are the resources I used across all three tests (separate posts). I used a variety of resources for each one and a variety of study methods. Its always a work in progress.
