MCSE Desktop Infrastructure certification

Today I passed the Windows Server 2012 exam 70-417. This is an upgrade exam that is a composite of three standalone exams: 70-410, 70-411, and 70-412. Because I did a lot of exams last months, I place a complete overview in this blogpost. Here we go!
- 70-687 Configuring Windows 8 (70-689 wasn't available yet)
- 70-415 Implementing a Desktop Infrastructure

- 70-416 Implementing Desktop Application Environments
- 70-688 Managing and Maintaining Windows 8
- 70-417 Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012

With above exams I'm MCSA Windows 8, MCSA Windows Server 2012 and MCSE Desktop Infrastructure certified now! 

The MCSE Desktop Infrastructure certification validates your skills in desktop virtualization, remote desktop services and application virtualization. Show that you can deploy and manage desktops and devices that provide access from anywhere, while maintaining security and compliance.

  1. Henk,
    I have been certified since 1999 and now looking to upgrade my certs for MCSE. Just searching the internet for others who have taken the exams to get feedback on what they used to prepare. How difficult did you find the exams and what did you use to study for it ?

  2. I am very happy to read this post.Thanks for this useful post.
