Due to limited ability to take off work to do exams I went ahead and took both 284 and 285 today and passed both. Yay me...

Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)
Working on: RHCE/Ansible
Future: Probably continued Red Hat Immersion, Possibly VCAP Design, or maybe a completely different path. Depends on job demands...

    Well I have experience in Exchange administration which is a plus. Mainly in small to mid-size companies, 2-4 small sites with nothing really complicated. I had to hit stuff like 5.5 migration and coexistence really hard since the only migration I dealt with first hand was a completely manual process without using any of the migration tools. I noticed on the exam there were several questions that were more DNS or routing related than directly email related, and being knowledgeable in those areas really helped too.

    I had studied for 284 for the past month or so. I am fortunate enough to work for a company that has an SA agreement with Microsoft and I get some e learning courses provided for me, and I used that for the past several days as a study help for the design exam (285).
