No need for second shot… did it in one!

Studied studied…. and PASSED! Took the 83-640 exam today (Windows Server 2008 – Active Directory, Configuring). The 70-640 exam was actually retired recently in favor of the 83-640 since the new thing is actually testing in virtual machines and virtual networks. Thoughts? I really enjoyed doing the virtual servers and labs! Much better than studying terminology (which was the second half of the exam). A CRAZY FOUR HOURS IN ONE SPOT!! But thankfully, I passed!

Now I’m off to the next exam! I love being in IT! 🙂
