    You definitely did much better than I did when I was going through my Bachelor's a few years ago. Good job!

    I thought the 640 was "fairly" easy, failed it once. The 642 was a bear (passed on 4th try). Passed 646 on the first try, but only barely. If you've gotten through the first two, I think you'll do fine. Do yourself a favor and go over the technologies found here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/mdop.aspx

    Appreciate the link. Thanks.

    How did you find the 646 in comparison? I've seen a lot of people saying it's more of a review of the other 2 and more conceptual than technical.

    I would have to agree for the most part. A lot of review. However, this exam goes a LOT more in-depth with virtualization. Additionally, it covers more along the lines of SAN technologies and high-availability. I felt that passing the 642 exam helped me the most. Oh, and DNS... Microsoft LOVES to incorporate DNS with all these exams, as you already know.

    Appreciate the advice. Fortunately I'm very strong with DNS. I got 100% in the 640 and over 90% in 642.

    Thanks Davis.
