Azure certification planning, security focus https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134218/azure-certification-planning-security-focus Wed, 21 Nov 2018 18:57:29 +0000 Microsoft johnnycrypto 134218@/discussions
So basically are we just playing a waiting game for the replacement courses and so on?  I can't figure it out.  I can't even figure out what books one would get.  I'd like to focus on security, but the Azure solutions architect is what I'm thinking is my focus right now.

I passed 70-417 Windows Server 2012! This is what I did. https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134329/i-passed-70-417-windows-server-2012-this-is-what-i-did Tue, 04 Dec 2018 07:38:42 +0000 Microsoft Grenada 134329@/discussions This week I became officially MCSA  Windows Server 2012  certified after passing the certification test. It certainly wasn’t easy.  Back in March I started going through an uCertify MCSA course and the current CBT Nuggets course and then in October, I read through Microsoft's exam reference guide once. uCertify labs really helped me to prepare thoroughly for the exam.

My opinions about the exam:

As you know, when you take an exam you are under a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) so I won't talk or answer questions  about the questions in the exam, however, I can say this:
  • The exam is in 3 parts (one for every exam that you usually need for your MCSA 2012) and you have 20-20-21 questions.  You do them one section at a time, and once you finish a section, you cannot go back to review or change the answers.
  • In a question on the exam, they refer to “Windows Server 8” instead of “Windows Server 2012” (I actually made a comment about that at the exam review at the end )
  • Your final score is the lowest score of the 3 sections, so if you score 900-900-680, you fail the exam at 680.
  • The exam software doesn’t warn you that you didn’t read the full question anymore. Before, when you made an answer, and lets say you didn’t read the last 1-2 lines of the question, you had a popup warning you.
  • Lately, Microsoft has been pushing a lot towards PowerShell, and in ALL the new products certifications you need to know about PowerShell.  I don’t know how many PowerShell questions you will have in your exam, but if you don’t know PowerShell, you won’t pass for sure!.
  • The graphics on the new exam are a lot better!

Should i stick with 697/698 or go a diff route... https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134532/should-i-stick-with-697-698-or-go-a-diff-route Tue, 01 Jan 2019 03:06:41 +0000 Microsoft theowil 134532@/discussions
 I read that that the Microsoft 70-xxx, 74-xxx, and MBx-xxx series exams voucher code's are interchangeable, correct me if I am wrong.

I have a Voucher and a retake for both the 697/698 exams.  I attended a class/boot camp. I am pretty early on in studying for the 697. And I see they expire the exam March 31,2019. So i am trying to figure out do i go for this exam or possibly use the vouchers on something that i will have more time to study... I would hate to run out of time. 

 I am not 100% sure it would work but based off the info I gathered the vouchers should work for a number of exams.

I am pretty new to Azure/Intune, power-shell etc. But am willing to try to get it done. I know that no one can say for sure whats best for me, but a little insight or opinion would be nice.

I Have A+, Net+ and Sec+.  Thanks

Proctored Exam at Home https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134189/proctored-exam-at-home Sun, 18 Nov 2018 02:10:59 +0000 Microsoft CronJ 134189@/discussions I am not quite sure about it. I have heard that you can take the MS certification exam at Pearson Vue Testing Center Or from your home if your home computer/internet meets certain requirements like having enough fast internet, a camera, Microphone.
is that true ??
Thanks
