    Default Failed 70-410

    Failed the 70-410 last week after a 12 hour flight.
    Probably not the best idea but I had the opportunity before I had to leave for another job in the outback.

    Score: 560/1000

    I had strength on "Install and Configure Servers", everything else was comparable to "others that has taken this exam" except "Deploy and Configure Core Network Services".

    Training materials was CBT Nuggets, Trainsignal and I read through the whole Exam Ref 70-410: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 (which I now have donated to a local computer shop in my area).

    I studied actively for about a month.

    After about half way through the exam, I knew I was going to fail it.

    This time I'm not doing the real exam until I have good scores on Transcender.

    I'm looking into getting a book from a different source and do some more lab exercises. Any suggestions are very appreciated.

    It was my first Microsoft exam and a good experience, also I got the second shot offer so looking forward to attempt this exam again when I'm ready.

    Group Policy is where I did poorest. My strongest area was core networking, which is weird because I totally bombed the 70-642 earlier this year.
    I used the Sybex book, which I hear is better than the Exam Ref book. But the book, in the end, is only really good as a beginning point. The real nuts and bolts, I think, are in labbing. And I clearly didn't do enough.
    I've been thinking of starting a thread explicitly devoted to lab scenarios for people to work through in their environments. They're hard to come up with; it takes time.

    Any advice on which key points to pay attention to before taking the exam.
