I'm interested in studying and doing the SCCM 70-401 exam to open more doors when looking for this type of job. Currently I have no experience with SCCM but have been deeply involved with a few large enterprises (20000-70000 users) OS imaging/deployment, application packaging/deployment, patch management and client and server systems (MS/Novell/Linux ect). I've got experience with similar products (Dell-Kbox and Novell-ZCM) so the concepts seem similar from what I've seen so far. I'm a CNE, MCSA and 1 exam to MCITP-EA with 6+ yrs in IT.
My usual process is watch CBT/testout ect videos, build test lab, run through all tasks and practice situations (if I dont already have real-world experience), read through the vendor documentation then exam prep.
I'm curious, how difficult the exam was for you and what level of experience did you have with SCCM? Any recommendations?
