    Best of luck on the retake!!

    I passed 70-417 this week and now studying for 70-413. I have just started the short (But hopefully sweet) MSpress book.

    Have you planned on what resources you are going to use for 70-414? I checked Amazon and the MSpress is not released until 31st October this year!! I don't really want to drag it out that long, so I am looking for alternatives.... I am hoping 70-413 won't take me too long as I put a lot of time into studying for 70-417, so that should help.

    Yay ! Off to 70-414 . Have ITIL-F and CoE 333 in Between though !

    Thanks

    Chanakya

    Congratulations!!!

    How did you find the exam overall? When you failed the first time was that because it is a hard exam? Or is it Microsoft tricky, catch you out wording in the question again?

    Also sorry to repeat my previous question again but I am curious:

    Have you planned on what resources you are going to use for 70-414? I checked Amazon and the MSpress is not released until 31st October this year!!

    Again well done to you!!

    No problem.

    Firstly I flunked because of the lack of understanding of the testlet requirements.

    1. Microsoft wants you to think they way they think.
    2. There is a difference in the way Microsoft thinks and the way things are done in a real scenario.

    Re-exam : Put Microsoft's way of thinking before applying my experience.

    For 70-414 as far as I know there is only one resource i.e the Exam - Ref and the CBT Nuggets. Am going to use both of them to try cracking the exam for the first attempt.

    If that does not work , I shall wait for the book and try the second attempt.

    Cheers ! Best of luck to you too !

    This week Redhat Certificate of Expertise - Network and Services Security 333 exam to be cracked ! A Re-Exam though ! Failed the last two attempts !

    Oh well that is what second shot is for, time to regroup and try again!

    Do you think the lack of material was a factor here? Or was it the same issue you mentioned for the 70-413 having to think the "Microsoft" way? Or was it generally difficult?

    Best of luck in the re-take (At least you know what you are up against now, which is half the battle)!!
  • chanakyajupudichanakyajupudi Posts: 712Member
    Lack of material was felt.

    Also the Microsoft way. Sometimes they just want you to upgrade to Windows Server 2012 for no apparent reason !

    Lets hope the retake goes well.

    This is the last Microsoft exam for the year ! Unless my company pays for the rest !

    Cheers !

    No not just yet. I have given the MSpress book a once over, however I have been busy studying for ICND2. As soon as ICND2 is out of the way I will concentrate on 70-413. Getting my CCNA is priority for me at the moment though. I too will need to do the MCSE: Messaging, but I also want to do MCSE: Desktop Infrastructure. Have you considered this? Again the MSpress books are not available yet.
  • chanakyajupudichanakyajupudi Posts: 712Member
    I will do the messaging first. Maybe Desktop Later next year.
