    So 74-324 fell to the test center's mouse this morning, 828 in total. I honestly thought when I hit the finish button that I would be re-sitting it.

    The baby Office 365 exam "Administering Office 365 for Small Businesses" was released to replace the 70-323 as the requirement for Microsoft's Small Business Competency (Silver) as the 70-323 was deemed to enterprisey.

    Well, what can I say about it.

    13/35 questions on Sharepoint doth not equal the 20% that the exam objectives indicate that Sharepoint should take up. Got thrown on the first question that I really could only guess at. We don't have any clients using Sharepoint and my only real exposure was our test tenancy. We've mainly been dealing with Exchange -> Office 365 migrations.

    And as for the PowerShell questions, boy, they were asking for memorised cmdlets that I hadn't even seen in the Jump Start videos or any of the other material.

    So in summary:

    1- Know your Sharepoint
    2- Touch on all the PowerShell commands for anything you can do in the Office 365 / ECP GUIs
    3- Know your Office 365 plans and what they do / do not include
    4- Know you permissions levels and permission pass throughs to Exchange/Sharepoint/Lync Online from the Office 365 Roles.

    And now I'm off to Mexico for a weeks holiday, too many project and 21 day stints of 12-18 hour days this year!
