    Default MCSA Preparation

    Hi everyone I'm so glad I've found the site with people who have already done and passed this certificate which I think will be able to help me and other new peps in this certification.

    I'm starting this certification next month which is February 2014 and yes I'm a bit nervous about it and I don't know where to start and I want to start as early as possible because I'm free at the moment so I'm planning to take my time studying this.
    In the course there are 4 Modules which are as follows:
    70-687
    70-410
    70-411 and
    70-412

    So I don't know which one to start with, anyone who can suggest the best and good practice of starting this. Thank you.

    Hello, welcome to TE!

    The best one to start with the exams you have listed is 70-687 because that is a client OS exam, the Microsoft Press books [1] [2] are already out for that at the moment so you won't have any waiting around for that one. They don't have great reviews however, but between them both you should have enough to pass if you also use CBT Nuggets or Pluralsight video training.

    The 70-410 Microsoft Press book with R2 updates in them will be out in March and the 70-411 R2 book will be out in a few weeks and 70-412 R2 book will be out in March also. So they should be released close enough to you finishing the Windows 8 client exam.

    You might want to consider a subscription to Safari Books because all of the MS Press books get released in there also and you'll have access to them straight away once released - especially if you've got a tablet.

    Good luck with the exams!
