    Default PowerShell questions in the 70-410?

    Hi guys

    I am studying for my 70-410 and checked the Skills measured here on the MS website and I don't see anything about PowerShell.

    Does this exam focus on PowerShell commands?

    Thanks

    Yes. You need to know Powershell for the 70-410.

    Some examples of types of PowerShell you may encounter are:
    -Converting the GUI to Shell and vice versa.
    -Know how to use install-windowsfeature (or uninstall)
    -Creating users and groups. Like new-ADUser or new-ADGroup
    -Commands to Mange Hyper-V, such as managing virtual switches or Virtual Machines

    try the 70-410 PowerShell commands provided by James Conrad (with CBTNuggets.com) I found it useful & I passed the exam.

    If you are interested in learning powershell (and if you want to be an network admin you really should) I highly recommend this book:

    Learn Windows PowerShell 3 in a Month of Lunches: Don Jones, Jeffery Hicks: 9781617291081: Amazon.com: Books


    I find that once you understand the syntax and grammar of powershell most of the powershell questions are easy.

    I'm very new to Power shell but this helped me when I started with Cisco, I compiled almost all the commands of Training Guide from M$. Is probably not as good and James Conrad cheat sheet but since I don't have that nor do I like his videos here is mine I hope it helps someone else too.

    Guys, I've never worked with PowerShell and going to fill this gap. I'm going to begin with training video for beginners on PowereShell 2.0 on my mother language and after that continue to watch and read materials on PowerShell 3.0. Is this plan OK?
    Best, sacredboy!

    That should be fine. The powershell on the exam isn't overly tough if you carefully read the commands. English not as your primary language may complicate that but should be okay. I don't think I am giving away anything that isn't obvious that you should definitely know the powershell commands for going from UI to core and back again.

    English (even though is not my mother language) is not a problem, but I'd like to begin with material which is more clear for me to understand and after that to proceed to more advance and newer version. I hope the difference between PowerShell 2.0 and 3.0 is not so giant and won't make me to re-learn.
    Best, sacredboy!

    I actually found powershell 3 to be easier than powershell 2. Microsoft put in a ton of improvements, including a verbose help system. There is a ton more commands too.

    I used this and found it to be excellent actually:

    I saw this question both times I took the test (just as an example)

    You need to add a AD user named John Smith to the Domain Admins group, what is the PS command? (paraphrasing)

    Good luck!

    Keep in mind that the PowerShell default execution policy for 2k12 R2 has been changed from Restricted to RemoteSigned.

    One of the most important things for these exams, is my opinion, is to know which commands have been deprecated since 2008. Those will almost ALWAYS be 2 of the answer choices that you can eliminate immediately if you recognize it.
