    Hello cyberyes !

    I made this topic for classifying the MCSA exams.

    So, as you already know, this MCSA exams that you are studying on cybrary is for Windows Server 2012 and it includes 70-411 Administering Windows Server 2012, 70-410 Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 and 70-412 Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services. According to Microsoft: “Earning an MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification qualifies you for a position as a network or computer systems administrator or as a computer network specialist”. Practically you will be dealing with servers.

    There are many MCSA exams beside Windows Server 2012.

    I. MCSA: Office 365 (qualifies you for a position as a software as a service (SaaS) administrator or cloud applications administrator focused on managing Office 365).
    -> 70-346 Managing Office 365 Identities and Requirements;
    -> 70-347 Enabling Office 365 Services.

    II. MCSA: SQL Server 2012 (qualify you for a position as a database developer or database analyst).
    -> 70-461 Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012;
    -> 70-462 Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases;
    -> 70-463 Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012.

    III. MCSA: Windows Server 2008 (qualifies you for a position as a network or computer systems administrator or as a computer network specialist).
    -> 70-640 Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring;
    -> 70-642 Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuring;
    -> 70-646 Windows Server 2008, Server Administrator.

    IV. MCSA: Windows Server 2012 (qualifies you for a position as a network or computer systems administrator or as a computer network specialist).
    -> 70-410 Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012;
    -> 70-411 Administering Windows Server 2012;
    -> 70-412 Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services.

    V. MCSA: Windows 8 (qualifies you for a position as a computer support specialist).
    -> 70-687 Configuring Windows 8.1;
    -> 70-688 Supporting Windows 8.1.

    V. MCSA: Windows 7 (qualifies you for a position as a computer support specialist).
    -> 70-680 Windows 7, Configuring;
    -> 70-685 Windows 7, Enterprise Desktop Support Technician.

    I hope that clears you a little bit about MCSA exams. I am soon going to be taking the MCSA Windows 7 (next week probably) ,MCSA Windows Server 2012 and then MCSA Office 365.

    If you need materials, just ask and maybe I will be able to provide some of them.

    Thanks for the outline, I think many people are not aware of the scope the different certs set you up for.

    Hello there !

    Sorry for the huge delay due to study and the job… So I have passed the MS Exam 70-680 about a month ago and now I am going after the 70-685… So the exam is quite hard but if you study hard I know that you can make it! Oh, and by the way… If you are planing for the 70-680 I can help you out with some really nice Q&A form.. Just let me know 😉 I would be more than happy to help you ! 🙂

    @812teck Yes, now I have started to use the MS Virtual Academy and I’m looking for some Virtual Labs that would help me… If i will find something interesting I’m gonna let you know 🙂 …

    Hey guys,
    Nice to see everyone trying to get their certs.
    What i want to ask is, if anyone present here knows, how are the following exams?

    a) the MCSA O365 ? Any good materials or hands on labs apart from the free MS trials ? I also have CBT and Pluralsight accounts
    b) the 70-697 one – I do have both of the MCSA Win8 exams, so aiming to get this one aswell.

    Cheers.

    Practice, practice, practice. Don’t rush. Use your practice exams to focus on areas you need to work on… The same can be said for any other IT exam you plan to take.

    Passing the Microsoft 70-411 exam isn’t the huge issue now. I take this exam a couple of months back and was not able locate the significant dumps. However, later I found the refreshed and legitimate dumps which clears my exam in first endeavor.
