    I'm struggling away with the 70-697 Configuring Devices and my exam is in a couple of weeks. I have watched 490+ videos from ITDVDS, CBT Nuggets and Pluralsight and a few Youtube videos. I'm on my second run of CBT Nuggets (more slowly and more labbing) and some of the stuff I watched the first time I look at the title and think "I don't even know what it is !!!". I forget things from a few days before - it's a complete nightmare ! I've just started the Transcender tests and they are so tough but I know (or hope) the real exam is slightly easier. Biggest struggle for me is certificates / PKI - can I get my head around this area ? Er not really. These exams are getting harder.

    Take a break, seriously, take a couple of days off and let your brain decompress, then go back to the studying.

    Cheers Simon. Yesterday was a bad day. Today I am spending the whole day in the Intune interface and I just didn't want to do it but I've built up a head of steam now and I'm enjoying it......apart from disabling my mobile phone - can't get in it at all ! I know what you mean about taking breaks. What I tend to do now is do a few short CBT videos and lab around it then have 30 mins break then do a few more. If I go in with the intention of doing 2 hours of videos it's impossible. I need to pick your brains about something - been meaning to for a while but not sure whether to open a post or PM you....
