On the surface, there was nothing wrong with this exam, yet in the same gesture there was also nothing right about it. I’m not judging the content as it was delivered free of most complaints I typically comment about on exams. No, this was something different, something else. The kind of something only that of an infrastructure, architectural geek wouldn’t get.
Two weeks in the trenches working with EBS and this particular exam will be a godsend to you. You’ll be prepared, ready and set to deliver. The same could be said though of someone who has never touched anything else outside of EBS.
But opening the doorway to SBS, if you’ve ever touched a "real server", and happen to be a command line guy, you’ll find SBS, EBS and this particular exam to be considerably frustrating. Now don’t get me wrong! I’m not knocking EBS, or SBS. I’m just letting you know, if you’re not that guy, this is not the test for you.
Know your product, know the in’s, the out’s and you’ll do fine. But this is not an exam to think outside the box.
You’ve been warned!
