    Default 70-410 TechNet & Other Resources

    This has been mostly modified from the Microsoft Born To Learn Wiki - they are not identical! Not all of the objectives were covered by that website so I filled in the gaps where I could.

    Some things relate to older versions of Windows Server, but they are still relevant or there is not a newer documented alternative. Feel free to make suggestions or add to this thread.

    Awesome awesome thread ---- one question though ---all three books listed received some relatively good feedback, though each with some concerns. Is there one particular book you would recommend to pass the 410?

    Thanks, I haven't taken 410 yet, I am mainly relying on TechNet, though I will be hitting the books soon which should be a quick read by the looks of things. Having looked through some of the books so far though, the Sybex book looks better than the Exam Ref book which is a lightweight at only 400 pages but the Sybex book is all over the place for objectives which makes it hard to read. I haven't looked at the Training Guide yet. If I was to recommend one book though it would be the Sybex book so far...

    Default Lab

    Hi Asif,

    Nice effort. Really helpful. One more thing, for hands-on lab and practice, what should I do? I have a laptop with I5 2.3 Ghz process and 4 GB RAM on it. Can virtual box is good enough to install an evaluation copy of windows server2012? if so , then which version I should look into, essential ?

    Your help will be much appreciated.

    Ta

    Thanks Velka, the evaluation of Server 2012 only gives you Standard & Datacenter so you might as well use Datacenter. 512MB of RAM is the minimum spec for Server 2012 but it'll be slow if you have more than a few running, your client OS is going to need 1GB of RAM. Hopefully you have an SSD to speed thing up a little. Ideally you would have more RAM. VirtualBox is fine for labbing..

    You're welcome! Glad to hear this thread helped you in passing the test! For 70-411 check the Microsoft objectives they have added for R2. I haven't updated my threads for R2 yet but I will update them in the next few weeks but they should contain 90-95% of what's needed for the R2 tests.

    Good luck with 70-411!
