The Windows Server 2012 "Early Experts" Challenge free online study group has received a ton of interest and positive feedback.  Over the coming weeks, we'll be targeting study and hands-on resources together for preparing for Microsoft Certification Exam 70-410, Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 - the first exam that applies toward the MCSA on Windows Server 2012 credential.

Since we've released the "Early Experts" Challenge four weeks ago, we've had hundreds of IT Pros enroll in the study group, and we have quite a gathering of individuals that have already completed the very first Knowledge Quest as "Early Expert" Apprentices.  We'll be starting the next Knowledge Quest, the "Installer" Quest, next week to target the exam objective domain for "Install and Configure Servers", which makes up 17% of the exam. I'll be posting an update next week as soon as the Installer Quest is ready.

If you haven't completed the Apprentice Quest yet, don't fear! You still have time to join us and complete it at http://earlyexperts.net. You can then catch up to everyone else in the Installer Quest when you have time.

CONGRATULATIONS to our Windows Server 2012 "Early Expert" Apprentices!
