Thank you all for the kind words and support.

This was a pretty big challenge. The 70-697 was the hardest exam out of the three because the testable topics were so broad. The final exam the 70-398 was the most easy exam. I had less than 40 questions and it was primary scenario based vs the strange drag and drop questions that Microsoft usually does.

But I'm so happy to have finally knocked out my first MCSE exam!

    Thats awesome! I'm working on 70-698 now. Were you working full time as well? Because that would be extremely impressive if so.

    Yessir.

    That's actually how I was able to pass. Playing around with exam related material in my free time.

    I'm starting to read up on 70-698 and 697 study guides and study plans, and it's putting in perspective what you did.
    That's a lot in 2 months.

    Did you use a study plan?
    If so, which one.
    I see that CB Nuggets has one for 70-698.
