Failed 70-697

Interesting enough I passed the server exams 70-740(3 attempts).. the 70-741 and the 70-698 first time. But now I failed the 70-697 twice. I watched cbtnuggets and got measureup practice tests. It's a hard one for sure. I did write twice in two weeks though and only prepared in 3 weeks. I think my lack of studying is my point of failure. I normally over prepare but I think my confidence is getting the better of me.

    Persistence pays off. You can do this!

    I'm about a week away from retaking the 70-741 and I am only about 70% confident but if I fail I'll book it again for December.

    Good Luck!

    3 weeks to study for this exam is crazy. Took me 4 months to study for 70-697, its not an exam to be taken lightly.

    I understand 3 weeks was a little low. I finished the CBT nuggets course on the exam and did practice tests. I guess lack of material in the CBT nuggets course. Im thinking of taking the ITDVDS course but a little unsure. It covers everything. I like to watch videos and read the book.

    Is this a good strategy I want to complete this by Christmas. I'm thinking one month more.

    I wasn't far off for my first attempt my score was 675. But still not a pass.

    Problem with this exam, its forever evolving so trying to keep on top of things when studying is difficult, CBT Nuggets helped me alot for this exam and others I used them for but Technet, now called Microsoft Docs https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/ is the best source. Also try looking at EDX https://www.edx.org/course?course=all and search for courses you will find relating to the exam.
