Passed 70-412

I finally passed the last exam I needed for my MCSA: Windows Server 2012. This exam was pretty difficult. Although, surprisingly I think the 70-411 was more difficult. Anyways, I'm happy I got that out of the way.

As far as study materials, I used Testout software (provided by one of my college courses), CBT Nuggets, Technet, and alot of labbing at home. I also used any practice tests I could find online.

I feel like the material on this exam was my favorite out of the three. I really enjoyed the fault tolerance/high availability topics and Certificate Services aspects. I think I'm going to focus on getting my CCNA: Security next as I plan on enrolling at WGU pretty soon. That will help me knock out another class. Good Luck to anyone taking this exam!

    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    Good job! I'm still flip-flopping on if I should take this one as it has a lot of good content (Clustering..) or SQL 2012.

    Best of luck on the CCNA:S
