    Default 70-412 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.

    Great job on these - I've bookmarked all three of your posts for my own studies. I'll let you know if I see anything that isn't already on there.

    G'day Everyone, Daniel here from Melbourne Australia. I have successfully completed the 70-410 and 70-411 and plan to complete the 70-412 before the end of the year!.

    Just wondering what peoples thoughts are on the Sybex MCSA 2012 book? I have used the Microsoft 70-410 Exam Ref, and the Administering Server 2012 Microsoft book for the previous exams, but as the reference books for the 412 are not due til Jan 2014 I need other resources.....and like books as well as online content.

    Anyone's thoughts on the Sybex book would be great...
