    M$ 70-411 for Windows Server 2012r2. Never will do it again, hate the books, hate the questions and I do hate the unneeded content (NAP, RODC...).

    Failed 70-412 2 times with like 1-2 questions short even after taking classroom Microsoft Official Course and doing all the hands on labs and reading all materials. That failure made me realize the MOC materials just aren't enough to pass exams.
    Earned my MCSA by taking much easier 74-409 with close to 900 score!

    Indeed, I failed an MS exam once before, I think it was the 70-685. Hopefully I won't need to do an MS exam again. I also failed the CCNA:Security once and I think that's all of my fails, for now anyways. I would give up on an exam because I failed.

    I failed the CCENT recently, There's really not that more material to study for to take the full CCNA exam. I'm studying for the CCNA exam now, depending on how well I do on the CCNA practice exams, I will probably skip the CCENT retake and go to the full CCNA.
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.
