    Cranked through another round of practice exams through Kaplan / Transcender from CBT Nuggets.

    One thing I noticed about this exam, at least these practice exams is that a series of questions just come to me and then there are some that I don't know at all (very few) and then there are some where I kind of know but not 100%. 461 I felt like I was always behind the whole time grinding except for working with data, which I usually knew the answer. Consequently enough I scored almost 100% working with data for 461 and ~50% for the other 3.

    Anyway obviously the chance for a fail is there, but with the Booster pack I am good to go. I believe the booster runs through the end of the month, so if I one and done this exam I will be buying another booster pack for 462. However, I fully anticipant a MUCH longer study time for this one since it's my weakest.

    If you watch the video above they mention that you should do the exam you are the most comfortable first to build up momentum, makes sense. If that was the case I would of done 463, 461 then 462. A little out of order but not too bad.

    Well it's a wrap I am done with this track for the foreseeable future. I've been given a lot more responsibilities and now I am completely drained from these work efforts. I won't be coming back, still VERY proud to have passed 461, I list it on my resume and get A LOT more hits. Good times!

    I won't post in this thread any more. All done.

    Man, I hate to see you step away. You were killing it. I completely understand though. I was hell bent on getting my CCNA after the CASP, but work has been killing me. Now they've cancelled my vacation for next week, but I am still on for GPEN training the week after. Maybe after Christmas things will settle down a bit.

    Another piece that has inspired me.

    https://borntolearn.mslearn.net/cfs-...8/certpath.gif

    Get the MCSA 2012/2014 and take one more exam you get the Data Management and Analysis MCSE, which IMO is just fine. I like the BI title but the other is fine as well. And it's for 2016!

    In short grinding through 463 while taking breaks and wrapping up some mining structures.

    Exam is set for the 13th for 463 then 462. This should give me some breathing room to stop for a while until the electives are posted for MCSE 2016.

    Back to labs........

    PS sorry for the delay but work got overwhelming I really am the only BA at work who can perform these types of task most of the others are on the business side, focusing on financials etc.

    Thanks Nacho

    Just assigned 2 more tabular projects and data mining projects. Two more time series forecast then I move onto new product launches, a totally different type of mining structure will be required. Pretty stoked.

    Upon completion of the MCSA 2012/2014 I think this is the one I will take.

    Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/exam-70-466.aspx

    467 is another options as well, I just think the first one would be a better one for me to take, it aligns with my experiences more.

    failed ~518 tossed the results immediately lol. Re-evaluating my options at this point. Always have to do that....... I really need to ramp up on my machine learning more so than my tech skills, even though I enjoy the tech component, I am really a analyst/data resource. Not an IT person......

    Just wanted to say thanks for this inspiring thread and good work on the pass- are you attempting the other exam again? Really interesting for me as I've worked in server and network admin for ages but need to step into the SQL world properly soon, keen to learn and looks like a lot to learn too
