    Very Congratulation Dear icon_smile.gif

    I am very much happy for you

    I would love to share few job opportunities with you. Please pick anyone.

    Network Technician

    Network Administrator

    Systems Administrator

    Technical Support Specialist

    SQL Database Administrator


    One of my friends did this course but he took the training from Koenig Solutions and purchased (MCSA Microsoft Windows 8.1 Complete Study Guide 2015 Edition (English, Paperback, Jeffrey R. Shapiro, Darril Gibson)) this book.

    Right now, his designation is SQL Database Administrator and getting good salary.

    I did 412, 410, then the 411. I actually didn't have as many Remote Access questions as I thought I would, but that was my weakest area I think. Knowing the difference between connection request policy and network policy, knowing when to use particular settings, and understanding how the different pieces of a RA architecture interact with each other seemed to get me by. Remembering a couple of things in the old RRAS interface was also helpful.

    I think this test, much like the other recent MS tests I took, do not do a good job of validating practical knowledge. Having to memorize 6 different ways to complete the same task, or having to recall from memory which tab on something or other properties is where you go to do something or other is not a good validation of whether someone can support a Microsoft infrastructure at an expert level, but if they are going to include things like that on their tests, I have to prepare for it.

    On to the 2016 MCSA!
