The road to MCSE: Server Infrastructure (Passing 70-410 Exam Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012)23. October 201312. November 2013Gert Kjerslev
I have decided that I would go for the MCSE: Server Infrastructure, I have be focusing on VMware for a long time now, and I feel it is time to have a look af Microsoft new certification program. The MCSE is no longer called Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. It’s called Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert. MCSA has also been changed, and is now called Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate and not Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator. Microsoft has also made an effort by making the certifications with more focus on core competencies for each of the MCSE’s. To become a MCSE you must pass five exam’s, after passing the first three you will become MCSA for Windows Server 2012, this is also a prereq for the MCSE. Below I have listed all the exam needed to become MCSE: Server Infrastructure. MCSA Prereq Exams: MCSE: Server Infrastructure Prereq Exams: I will try to give you, in this post and the ones to flow, all the resources I have found and what to watch out for on the exam to the extend that will not violate the Microsoft Certification Program Agreement. My study resources: When I have taken the 70-410 Exam (and passed it hopefully 🙂 ), I will update this post with a list of the topics that you should be aware of. I will try to focus on some of the new stuff i Windows Server 2012, as well as Hyper-v. But all in all I look at the Skills being measured, and go in depth with the topics that not are my strong sides. Also by learning the material properly you will stand stronger in passing the test. I hope this wil help in any way with you 70-410 exam. Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more posts in my road to MCSE: Server infrastructure. Update 5/11/2013: Okay, so today I was defeated by the mighty IP v6 and its companion application restriction policy. I admit that 14 days exam prep was not enough for me. I will hit the books and study IP v6 and maybe try out a practice test. You are welcome to leave a comment with you experience with practice tests.
