    Default Back on the studies after a very long hiatus

    Hello again everyone,

    I had started a thread on here back in January regarding my pursuit of the 70-410 exam. however, to sound like a broken record - things did not go according to plan.

    I ended up getting massively consumed with work and it took until now to really muster up the willpower and motivation to pass this exam.

    My company put me and a number of my colleagues through a course that was being taught by our own in-house trainer. I had some concerns about how much of the curriculum the course actually covered. and as a result purchased the MSFT self study guide and read that as well. Unfortunately it confirmed what i had already feared - the course material was extremely light on just about all of the exam objectives. not sure what i can and can't say about certain courses so i will leave them unnamed.

    I purchased the transcender practice exams as i have done for my other IT studies, first time around landed me at a frankly embarrassing 30%. But not to be disheartened i looked at my score and focused on my weaker areas and a week or 2 later came back to it. this time i got 66%.

    there is a tangible improvement, which i am happy about but still have work to do.

    the plan is to start checking in either weekly or bi-weekly to try and get some routine again, and ideally get this passed before the end of October.

    Wish me luck!

    Good to see you are motivated to come back. Since you already begun reviewing and have a general understanding of the exam, I think passing by the end of next month is reasonable. Assuming you stay consistent these next 4-5 weeks and put in at least a couple hours studying per day.

    Best of luck! Keep us posted!

    Thanks for the support

    I am currently trying to fill the gaps in the 2 books i have with technet reading. the sticky on this forum is fantastic for that, I forget off the top of my head who authored that post - but it is very much appreciated!

    I haven't booked my exam yet - i want to consistently pass the transcender exams and flashcard tests before i book it. the goal remains the end of next month, though.
