This examination was comparatively difficult because of the scarcity of targeted certification study materials and administrators coming from any of the prior versions of Exchange properly got shocked by architectural changes made in 2013 and not many have the opportunity to really hands-on that long to prepare for this examination. Well, since my learning is to equip one-self by the knowledge needed to withstand technological environment risks and integration hassles, I guess it should be even harder for me, right? LOL
Anyway, behold while I list down my study materials.
* Virtual Lab
* Mastering Microsoft Exchange Server 2010
* Exchange Server 2013 Unleashed
I need to admit that some of the books are not for the light-hearted whom sole purpose is just to get the certification or simply looking for introductory materials but having read through any of the books will set you the right expectation about the product and administration role of managing the product infrastructure.
Oh well, passing it with 899 is not so bad for me I think. :)
And by the way, Prometric website nowadays seems unreliable. Page error popped up after I made payment and no email notification on anything even though the support replied and said they did, Grrr. And yes, I did check my spam folder. LOL
More exams to come :)
