MCTS: System Center Configuration Manager

Saturday, 19. June 2010

I posted previously about attending a Microsoft authorized training course on Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (officially shortened to ConfigMgr, but commonly referred to as SCCM). After that course, I had intended on taking the exam but as the product was not one in which I was involved with regularly, and some life stuff that got in the way, I put it off.

This year my work responsibilities have shifted and I’m now managing my employer’s ConfigMgr environment. I’ve spent time since getting back up to speed on the product, remembering those details from the class and learning other details which you can only get by experience on a “real-world” deployment. Because I’ve been so deep in ConfigMgr lately, it seemed to only make sense that I should get the test out of the way, and the fact that Microsoft’s “Second Shot” program is nearing an end prompted me to start studying.

Overall, I would say the biggest study tool I used was my employment. Aside from that, I also used this book which I have found to contain a good amount of information.  Microsoft also has information on its page which gives details about the exam, skills measured, and recommend training; that information can be found here.
