    So just sat the 412 - Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services and passed.

    Sat it about 2-3 weeks earlier than I wanted to as my exam voucher expires tomorrow and can't make it then.

    Overall did all right, however my weak points include:

    1. Configure and Manage High Availability
    2. Configure File and Storage Solutions

    Closely followed by:
    1. Configure identity and Acces Solutions

    Materials that I used:

    CBT Nuggets 70-412
    Plus the material that I listed for the 70-410 and 70-411 exams

    Ok, without breaking the NDA...

    I had 58 questions over the course of 2 1/2 hours.
    What the exam cover is already listed here and to tell you the truth, it's spot on.

    Personally, I thought that this exam was harder than the previous 2008 and 2003 exams, mainly because of the new technology that Microsoft has brought in with 2012 (and the lack of time I had to study also contributed).

    As the previous 2012 exams that I have taken, if you're already a MCSE/MCITP with experience with 2008/2012 then you either know or can work out about 40-50% of the answers already (or at least with the questions that I've was allocated).

    Congrats on the pass... I was considering doing this too, but work are keeping me busy and in between job searching and getting ready for the interview phase I think i've got more than enough to get on with.
