Feels good to have a Microsoft Cert finally!
After the holidays and a little break, I’ve now passed the MCTS: Windows 7, Configuration exam. The exam was a lot more difficult than I expected, with more than a few simulations, multi-part questions with multiple available answers, etc. All in all, this was a real eye-opener for how Microsoft certifies compared to CompTIA. I highly suggest to anyone currently studying for a Microsoft exam to ensure to lab, lab, lab, know the “Microsoft way” to complete tasks where there are multiple options, and to know their software tabs names. Sometimes, I felt they were being overly nit-picky but it’s their exam so I just adapted and moved on.
