Retake Failure

I took my test again after a month of studying, most on IPv4 configurations and subnetting. I suppose I could post some of the links
of sites that I used as study resources however they might not all be here as I had computer failure not long after taking the test.
I found a great video series on youtube that helped me to mostly memorize an IPv4 subnetting table and after watching it I felt like
I understood the basics. DHCP is real killer though. I had a really tuff and involved DHCP question that basically involved a screen with a
block of ip configurations and subnet blocks as sort of a multi question what goes where type of thing. I dont think I did too well on that
section. However I did do fairly well in a couple areas (scoring in the 90s)over all I failed. As you hopefully can see in the picture (also shown
some upcoming concerts im excited about haha)I got a 563 this time.

Ignore the pall Mall coupons, im really trying to quit. To be quite honest im not sure why im including it other than I need to straighten out those
tickets if im going to save them!

ok so here you can actually see what my score was. Without all the irrelevant information. Clearly IPv4 configuration and DHCP
is a struggle for me. Im going to continue to study but it might be good to seek a Network + certification so I have a little better
background in what im doing here (studying things that are way over my head at this point it time but giving it my best. I would have assumed
that I would have done better on the GP and AD sections. Not sure how those got so low but either way its some thing to study.

IPv4 links

clearly my studies didnt help all that much in terms of on paper test scores as I spent most of the month between exams studying this topic
alone but these resources are very helpful. Im not sure if any one is less excited about how much IPv6 we will see in the next version of server
than I am. I dont see IPv4 very clearly yet but as a guitar player I could understand that after you fully understood it you could begin
to see ip address ranges and almost the entire internet as a guitar fret board with intent behind the theory. That is very exciting to me.
However coming into it after not having learned to play an easy guitar fully and then being handed an 8 string is quite a scary proposition.

so here is the recommended video series, there’s lots of stuff out there about subnetting and most of it is helpful. However this is
guys is from Nashville and I lived there for a while so maybe im just partial. Also its honestly worth it to watch the whole thing and take notes the entire time and do
the exercises while pausing. It may not get you extra points on the 70-410 but at least you will have a better understanding of subnetting.

Ok, thats all for now. Theres also a few questions Ive seen centered around integrating Azure with an in house AD solution so up next
I suppose Ill muse on that for a while. Oh yeah and also attempt to figure out how and why the technology actually works.

And in case the youtube video doesnt frame in correctly here is the direct link:

Subnetting Demystified

I havent updated this in a while, havent had much info to share. Attempted my test for the first time and unsurprisingly failed by a decent margin. I got a 538
as you can see in this photo where I gave it my best Honey Boo Boos mom face.

Im feeling like im kind of in limbo at the moment waiting on my retake. I did a acquire a new book and have worked about half way through it
Its this guy right here.
Decent books covers some things that the Panek/Sybex book doesnt cover. Still about another thousand pages of essentially cliff notes.
However booth books are tremendously helpful to server new comers in the regard that they do offer a direction in which to study.

Ok so great, now I have to retake my test again soonish and im probably not going to do a whole lot better but the good news is that I
do feel like its passable at this point. At first I wasn’t entirely sure it was possible from my vantage point, now im not so sure.

Currently studying IPv4 sub netting, feeling some what confident about DNS and less so about DHCP. When first approaching subnetting
I was completely overwhelmed because book reference isn’t that helpful and my teach in class wasn’t too keen on answering questions. Thankfully
I found this video series

Here is the link in case the iFrame doesnt load. Subnetting Demystified

Super thankful for this dude and for this free resource hes made available to schlubs such as my self attempting to acquire the wisdom of
the wizards of Sever and interneting technologies. So im still working through that series and trying to use this as practice with a little help from this
for the sake of comprehension. Upon first approach it seemed like a random number generator but the Ip calculator proved me wrong.
After watching a few times and doing some practice trying to understand the numbers show in the calculators formula I think I should be able to understand.
Its also surprisingly fun once you put a little effort into it. Its a nice break from memorization of conceptual and practical terms/data.

Going to have to really milk the practice tests for all they are worth because I believe those go away for me in January and they are a
huge huge help in terms of direction and every thing else. I have literally no money but I might try to find a way to extend the time line
in which those are available to me if its not overly expensive. So for now we are working on getting down DHCP technologies and brining up
that bottom number quite a bit.
