    Default 70-410 - Passed

    I finally got off my butt and took this test. Scored a 928, so I probably spent a little too long studying for this one. I failed 70-412 the first time, so I spent a lot more time on my weaker areas for 70-410. For an experienced Windows Server professional, I found this test much easier than the 412.

    I focused on IPv6 syntax and subnetting; Hyper-V - mainly all of the options for the VM hardware, the differences between gen1 and gen2, and Hyper-v networking; server migrations; things that have changed in Storage since 2003; Remote Management; and how to do all of the AD, DNS, DHCP, Security, File/Storage, etc tasks that I have been doing for years, but with PowerShell or other command line utilities.

    I used work experience, labbing up a domain using VM Workstation (using TechNet to walk through many of the knowledge domains from the exam blueprint), various YouTube videos, and Transcender practice tests to prepare.

    Working on 70-411 now. I want to have that one knocked out before Christmas, so that I can roll right into the Windows 2016 training that I will be taking in January and hopefully knock out the 2016 upgrade test while much of this is still fresh.

    I'm currently studying for it and you reminded me I still have to go over this stuff and memorize it. How many questions of that would you say are on the test? Since I have no experience in IPv6. We are still IPv4. My test is this Thursday but I've memorized all the other topics you said except IPv6

    You really need to go back and look at IPv6. I might have had 4-6 questions. A quick and dirty resource would be the Wikipedia article on IPv6 for the fundamentals. Knowing the FE80::/64 is the link-local (like APIPA for IPv4) might be worth a few points, and knowing how many /64 networks can be created in a given network block would be something good to know. Also recognize the transition protocols like Teredo and 6to4 (I might have had a question or it may have just been on the practice test I took, I don't remember!)

    Good luck!

    That's awesome ... Great job i'm studying for the 411 myself too. I notice the material is getting a little harder and lab from Pluralsight. A lot of powershell commands. I'm giving myself other 1 month before taking the exam. Getting a little nervous about it.
