    Well, I have to say that while I didn't pass (poss maybe 5 more correct answers and I would have passed), I did have a learning experience...

    Without breaking the NDA... I felt this exam had too many skype and sharepoint questions (tbh they were my weak subjects), as well as questions from other MS technologies... It was also heavy on powershell, which was so-so for me...

    So will I go for the MCSA: Office 365 still? TBH, I don't think so... I may go for the Exchange 2016 exam instead.

    Thanks for sharing Ken. I often feel I learn more from a failure as it makes me focus. It sounds silly but I've passed a few exams, by the skin of my teeth, and I feel like I barely know the material so it was just luck on the day I guess. Not complaining obviously! ha ha
    I think a good shout to go after Exchange as you've smashed MCSA's and their general-ness many times in the past

    Thanks mate, hopefully I'll pass that, after all I've been working with Exchange for years now... But I guess it all depends on my experiences and the two books I've ordered ("Exam Ref 70-345 Designing and Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2016" and "Exchange Server 2016 & Exchange Online: Essentials for Administration") vs the actual exam itself...

    I've lost count of the times where I've gone into an exam and a whole topic has blindsided me ha ha I say blindsided, it's always in the blueprint or exam guide, but you know when its a one liner, and then you get asked several questions on the subject and you're like arrggghhh! ha ha

    Reminds me of the Exchange 2007 exam years ago – almost all powershell. I know Microsoft are pushing this but if you are not always using powershell everyday then can be difficult remember. I have lots of powershell scripts saved that I edit when I need them but don’t expect me to type the whole thing from scratch without a few errors.

    Are you using Exchange 2016 just now mate?

    Been using it for a few years now, I think since the end of 2016 or the beginning of 2017... Already considering 2019 in hybrid mode :)
