    Cool Completed MCSE Cloud Platform and Infrastructure

    I passed 70-744 Securing Windows Server to complete the MCSE Cloud Platform and Infrastructure. The exam was not too difficult, I only used the Exam Reference for book material and did some labs for containers, Just-Enough Administration, and shielded virtual machines.

    Nice! Congrats. What sort of areas did it cover alongside the exam criteria? I'm looking at doing it in the future.

    The Exam Ref was really good for this exam. The "lab" and I use that term loosely here, because it was just a couple Windows 2016 Server VMs in Hyper-V on my Surface that I used to test a few things in PowerShell that book explained and the areas above that I had mentioned.

    I'm using the Exam Ref for the MCSA 2016 Upgrade, but it is a lot of a read haha! I'm using Pluralsight mostly for the upgrade exam. How do VMs run on a Surface? - I'm interested to know.

    One of the best skills people can learn when studying is to create a study plan. Break the content into chunks. I do this a week before I start training. For example, I'm doing the 70-697. The first week I read through the book 2 chapters at a time. The next week, I watch the CBT Nuggets videos I have access to, 6 per day. The third week I cross-reference the videos to the book notes, creating my own customised books with notes in the margins, etc.

    On the 4th week I go back to the book, reading through the same sections in the same order as Week 1, but with the added cross-referenced notes. Hasn't let me down thus far!

    With Windows 10 you can run Hyper-V and load as many VMs as your host can allocate resources. I had 2 Windows 2016 Servers and a couple of containers that I was playing around with.
