The Microsoft 70-410 certification test is the first part of three-series exams that are meant to measure the candidate’s knowledge and skills in terms of implementation of Windows Server 2012. Those students who excel in the test prove that they are able to perform implementation and configuration of core services of Windows Server 2012 such as networking services and Active Directory. Passing all the three exams shows that these individuals can implement, manage, maintain and provision services in Windows Server 2012.

Getting ready for the Microsoft 70-410 exam can be quite a daunting task, especially if you do not have the right preparation resources. This article shares some resources you can use to get ready.

Exam structure

Before delving into the different resources required for the exam preparation, it is important to know about the test structure. This will act as your study guide.

To begin with, the Microsoft 70-410 exam is divided into six sections. Each of these sections is assigned a certain percentage weight, which represents the number of questions that the section contributes to the overall test. The sections are as follows:

  • Installation and configuration servers – from 15% to 20%
  • Administering and installing Active Directory – from 15% to 20%
  • Configuring Hyper-V – from 15% to 20%
  • Configuration of server roles and features – from 15% to 20%
  • Management and creation of Group Policy – from 15% to 20%
  • Deployment and configuration of core network services – from 15% to 20%

When you prepare, it is important to make sure that all the sections are allocated an equal amount of time. This because all the parts have the same contribution towards the main exam questions and ignoring any may result in failure to meet the cut score. The Microsoft passing score is typically 700. However, this does not imply that you have to answer 70% of the questions. You may be required to pass questions ranging from 50-80%. To be on the safer side, do your best throughout the exam responding to all the questions.

Required resources for exam preparation

The following resources will come in handy as you go about your studies for the 70-410 certification test:

  1. Instructor-led training

This refers to enrolling in a course where you have an instructor taking you through all the study materials. Training videos are prepared and you are guided on what to study at different periods of time. Microsoft has its own instructor-led training – Course 20410D. Throughout it, key informational resources are split into modules. There are a total of 13 modules, all of which the candidates complete over an estimated 5-day period. Besides theoretical knowledge, you also get some lab exercises under each module. The lab exercises are essential as they equip you with the practical skills required to excel in the corporate world. Not all of these exercises will be tested in the overall exam, but they are still important as they prepare you to be better equipped with tackling the demands of your work.

The prerequisites for the Course 20410D include basic knowledge of server hardware, networking fundamentals, security best practices and AD DS concepts. Furthermore, the students who have experience in installing previous Windows Server will find it easy throughout the course.

  1. Self-paced training

This is a contradiction of instructor-led training. Just as the name suggests, self-paced training involves studying in a way that is most convenient for you. You do not have to worry about study deadlines. It is an appropriate resource in situations where you have a busy schedule, including taking care of your family and meeting your job’s requirements.

Microsoft’s own self-paced training is one of the best resources you can consider for your studies. It consists of seven modules, which cover new features, solutions, and capabilities of Windows Server 2012. Upon completion of the course, you will have been thoroughly prepared to get a deeper view of the technology via relevant courses in Microsoft Virtual Academy. As much as self-paced training resource is meant to accommodate your busy schedule, it does not imply that you are lazy in your studies. A dedicated candidate will strive to surpass their own study timelines.

  1. Books

The power of books can never be underestimated. In fact, this is the most flexible resource. It allows the candidates to cover their topics of interest from any location, whether caught up in a traffic jam or on a short lunch break at your workplace. Microsoft Exam Ref 70-410 is designed to help their students in their preparation. It is fully updated with all the possible topics that can be tested in the main exam. This book is aimed at experienced IT professionals looking forward to upgrading their status. It trains one to think critically and be better at making decisions.

  1. Exam prep videos

This is a brief introductory video. It takes less than 6 minutes, which makes it one of the quick resources you can include in your collection. As it is an eye-opener video, you do not want to miss out on it. It is offered by the Microsoft certification experts, both of whom have an immense grasp of Windows Server 2012.

  1. PrepAway 70-410 practice tests

Supply Chain Management Association Becomes Supply Chain Canada

Vlad Poptamas



Reading Time: 2 minutes


At its AGM yesterday, the Supply Chain Management Association™ announced its name change to Supply Chain Canada™. The association also launched a new website as part of an overall rebranding initiative.

“The new name and look are part of a transformation that we have undertaken as the association enters its second century,” said Christian Buhagiar, President & CEO of Supply Chain Canada. “Today’s supply chains are dynamic and fast-paced. The association for Canada’s supply chain professionals must reflect that.”

Through the rebranding process, the association has also acquired a meaningful new logo and tagline, “Professionals advancing the future.”

The logo’s maple leaf design not only conveys our nationality; it also represents the connectedness of the supply chain, illustrating the networks and collaboration that are so essential to supply chain success, and the interconnectedness of the association’s federation, institutes and members. Its connected dots can be seen, as well, as the complex route of a global supply chain.

“Professionals advancing the future” succinctly communicates both the professional status of supply chain practitioners and their forward-looking perspective. It is intended to:

  1. Elevate the perception of supply chain practitioners as professionals, acknowledging the value they bring to their organizations and to the Canadian economy.
  2. Encompass the several ways that the association and its members “advance” – in their personal careers and knowledge, and for the profession, the country and the economy.
  3. Express the future focus of the association – with its emphasis on the development of skills and policies – and of the supply chain itself, now so focused on AI, blockchain, robotics, automation and so on.

The new website, now at, is enhanced with a modern look and new functionality that enables location-based content for users across Canada.

These changes are not simply style enhancements. They are part of a larger plan to strengthen the association. Supply Chain Canada consolidates the organization’s brand across the country under a single name in every province and territory, removing any possible confusion from its federation structure. “The unity that this will ensure will help us improve recognition in the sector, and thereby provide stronger leadership to the Canadian supply chain community,” said Buhagiar.

The association’s transformation began in 2018 with a new vision and mission, as well as an ambitious three-year strategic plan. The new name and rebranding announced yesterday are part of a larger evolution that will continue over the next two years with the introduction of new and revised educational offerings, new initiatives to engage with industry, more value-added membership benefits and more.

Wirex Launches Enhanced Cryptoback™

Vlad Poptamas



Reading Time: 1 minute


Today, payments platform Wirex launched a supercharged update of their revolutionary Cryptoback rewards programme. Customers can now earn up to 1.5% back in Bitcoin on Wirex Visa card purchases.

Released in 2018, Cryptoback™ was the world’s first rewards programme that paid out 0.5% in cryptocurrency for all in-store spending with the Wirex Visa card. Thanks to the recent launch of the Wirex Token (WXT), customers can now triple the amount of BTC they earn – making investing in cryptocurrency easier than ever before.

Depending on the amount of WXT held, in-store Wirex card purchases now generate up to 1.5% in Bitcoin. There are three levels of crypto rewards available:

  • 500,000 WXT = 1.5% Cryptoback
  • 100,000 WXT = 1.0% Cryptoback
  • 50,000 WXT = 0.75% Cryptoback

Wirex have calculated that the average UK consumer stands to earn more than £300 in Cryptoback™ every year, just by using their Wirex Visa card for day-to-day spending. Unlike many other cashback programmes, Wirex doesn’t impose restrictions on what customers can do with their rewards. Cryptoback™ can be redeemed instantly into their Bitcoin accounts, or quickly and easily exchanged into fiat for spending.

Enhanced Cryptoback™ is just one of the ways that holding Wirex Tokens allows customers to get even more out of their account. They can also enjoy heavily discounted fees based on the same structure, with access to premium products, merchant offers and airport lounges coming soon. As Wirex co-founder Pavel Matveev explains:

“We created the Wirex Token to be something that provides tangible value and benefits for holders beyond its market trajectory. Enhanced Cryptoback™ is the perfect example of this, as it allows customers to earn and invest in digital currency with a minimum of fuss. We’re looking forward to introducing even more benefits for WXT holders soon.”
