  • Question

  • Hi All

    I went ahead and registered myself for doing the 70-411 exam next week, but I can't find any study materials for it! The Textbooks aren't out, and CBT Nuggets apparently doesn't have videos on the topic...so what the hay? Why is the exam offered w/o study materials? HOW DO I STUDY FOR THIS NOW?

  • Hi,

    The official MS Press books fore these exams will not be available until August 2013.  So you can only use what is listed in the exam overview under 'skills measured' and use Google to find info on the topics listed or build a (virtual) test lab to try/install/use all the items listed.

    Unfortunately many of new MCSA/MCSE exams will not have any official study materials until Q3/Q4 this year.

  • So I have to wing it?

    That's horrible. Why is microsoft marketing the certifications with their special offers before theres even any study material??? That blows my mind.

    Thanks for the response.

  • Hi,

    If you still have not found your study materials we do have these classes running in the near future. The registration fee includes the textbooks and the classes are geared specifically toward these exams. You can take the class from anywhere with an internet connection if you are not local to the area the training is running in.
