    Passed this afternoon first time with a 700. Extremely relieved. Wasn't feeling wholeheartedly confident going into it. Very happy I'm more aware of how Microsoft structures their exams now and I think I'll be far more confident going into future ones.

    I felt the exam was totally fair in that it wanted to know that you understood the process and not necessarily just memorise a load of facts(although there was an element of that too.)

    Onto 70-685 now! :)

    Hurray! Congratulations on the hard work paying off. Time for a beer (vodka really) and a week or 2 off?

    More like green Tea and a few games of Fifa haha. Nah, I study exclusively in work so I may as well just kick on tomorrow. Better than sitting around when there's nothing else going on.

    Thanks mate. :)

    Well done. Although I haven't taken that exam, I agree about the quality of Microsoft exams. I'm constantly impressed with the number of different ways they find to structure questions, and the way in which a lot of the questions involve against-the-clock problem solving as well as recalling information. They really are a mental work-out.

    The exams are getting much harder to study for. I am currently doing 70-697 Configuring Windows Devices and the Intune / Azure / Office 365 is difficult to get my head around. Trying to sign up for best trials etc and with Azure the extra complication of costs associated with the Azure services. Only just started today playing around in the Azure Portal....eek !

    Absolutely, I passed a VMware exam in Feb and while its not that clear how you are scored, I'm pretty sure I passed it with the bare minimum, possibly one mark to spare. I can't find the time to smash exams anymore, its a luxury to get half the study time that I used to

    Get started on Azure soon please so you can help me out !!! My aim is to get the MCSA Windows 10 (70-697 and 70-698) by end October then I want to do the 70-398 which is Planning and Managing Devices in the Enterprise which goes into a lot more detail on Azure. I feel like a seagull chick at the moment learning to take first steps in flying with this Azure stuff !!!
