Good luck in the future and I hope you find the additional help that you need. Yeah, It's a tough nut to crack no doubt about that. From what I've seen the transcender is pretty good, but in my experience being solid with the wider concepts of the exam will help come exam time.
There's more questions than you'd think on file history and offline files, no idea why at this point though.
I have been using mostly transcender myself and have not yet taken the exam I have seen so many different reference points saying that transcender is good and transcender is bad, CBT is great and CBT is vague, technet articles that I can't seem to actually find, way too many free trials of things I don't have time to learn to use.
A huge book that I don't have time to read My job is going to make me take this soon I think its a little bit of luck I guess I will have to see how it is and maybe fail it a few times first Read TechNet for all of the exam objectives and know your Powershell! I took on Friday just gone and passed but unfortunately failed which I took on Saturday, failed by just 1 question as I got a score of so am pretty annoyed with myself. For Azure FS I got none of the questions right so am wondering if people can offer advice on where to look to bulk up my knowledge?
Are we allowed to discuss particular questions here or is that a no no as I'm aware I did sign an nda when taking the exams. Hi all, I tried this exam 2 times, I really underestimated it and at this moment I'm looking for a new attempt. The first time was at the start of december with score , 2nd time last week with I had the feeling that my second exam was way more difficult with 51 questions comparing with the first 46 , is a score of 1 missing question, and it's really frustrating that with drag and drop questions where you need to fill in several items and you fail one piece, the whole question is wrong.
I also don't understand the way Microsoft evaluates the exam. My result of the 2nd attempt in the chart is much better. The exam includes a lot of various topics, I think I'll improve the weakest skills again. This is also my first certification attempt so maybe failing and discovering is the only way..
Not filling me with very much confidence and I have my exam in a few days. I am so glad Christina approached me to be part of the Transcender: First Timer tour because this book was a lot of fun! Transcender is a really unique read. Jumping genres is certainly an increasing trend, and I really Review posted here. I think fans of any genre will find something they enjoy in Transcender, but please understand that Ryder's abs are something you will have to enjoy from a distance because DIBS. She starts off as a kind of follower, doing what Ralston or her mother want her to, but eventually she learns to stand up for herself or for the right thing, no matter how much opposition she faces.
Jaden's adventures in the alt-universe of Domerica might be a work of science fiction, but her struggles to trust herself is one that many readers will identify with. Add in a healthy dose of Parental Drama and horrible first dates with douche-tastic boys, and you will totally find yourself empathizing with Jaden's plight, even if you can't jump to other dimensions including worlds in which you may be a crown princess.
Also, I think it's pretty fantastic that Jaden doesn't wait around for the men in her life to rescue her; she rescues herself! I also really like the way Vicky portrays different kinds of relationships in Transcender. Jaden and Drew, Jaden and her mom, her dad, Ryder and his friends and family There are so many different family situations represented in the book and all are depicted in their own unique way. Ryder and Jaden do have a bit of an insta-love connection going on, but it is explained in certain terms that make me okay with that in addition to the fact that I've recently changed my views on the whole insta-love tihng.
Also, I am intrigued to read Streaming Stars and Illuminosity to see how this relationship grows and changes throughout the series as a whole. Jaden's relationship with her mom is probably the most complex in the book, and I like how Vicky really explores and delves into it in each of their interactions. Even though these two characters are queen and princess, they still have normal mother-daughter moments that are very realistic and relatable. A couple things that I was less happy with were the pacing, which seemed incredibly fast sometimes but a little too slow at others. I would have liked some of the primary action at the end of the book to have happened earlier to build up the conflict over a larger portion of the book rather than having the conflict happen directly before the resolution.
I think this happens because of the considerable amount of world-building that needed to be done as well as introduction of some series-long conflicts so I do understand, but my personal preference would have been a smoother, more uniform pace. Secondly, even though I do love the inclusion of so many different genres, sometimes I felt like the historical elements stilted the dialogue a bit too much.
Jaden, in all her current-ness, obviously speaks like someone who lives in USofA. Everybody else is obviously a bit more formal as the societies of Domerica and Unicoi, the entire world in fact, is completely different. Still, I found the drastic changes a bit too distracting.
Like with the pacing, I would have liked the vocabulary of the dialogue to be more moderate.

- Transcender: First-Timer (Transcender, #1) by Vicky Savage.
Overall, I found Transcender: First Timer to be engaging and intruiging. I've only read book one, and even with a couple minor technical complaints, I can't wait to read the other books in the trilogy. I think Jaden and her story contain qualities that any reader will find relatable and thus enjoyable.
Because this review is going up so late, I'm going to just leave my thoughts as bullet points. While I can understand it to a certain extent because it's being dumped onto Jaden herself, for me, it got to be too much too quickly. Perhaps that's the exact intent, but it didn't make it any easier to deal with. Not the worst issue in the world, but! They are unique, and I particularly love the character interactions. I'm not sure if that's because I felt that some characters seemed to always be changing, not really having one steady personality, or for some other reason. While Savage's writing isn't my favorite, it's not bad either.
Again, while I can understand it, the change was often sudden and without a clear cause, making it confusing for me as a reader --I'm confused as to why other characters don't do something more than perhaps point out the fact that sometimes she'll slip up and say something wayyyy too modern. It's like they question it but easily accept her lame excuses. I can understand getting away with it once or twice, but afterwards, isn't it really obvious? It was obvious it was going to happen maybe a little too obvious? And then, I felt that a large part of their relationship was on the basis of their ermm I'm not entirely sure why because I'm really interested in the story and the plot and everything --Overall, the book really made me think about our lives, our responsibilities, our morality, how we react to problems, etc.
I find this exploration and insight really interesting and very thought-provoking. Something about the story and the characters just drew me in. I'd recommend it! Sep 01, Bayram F rated it liked it. While I usually don't read let alone review books like Transcender by Vicky Savage, this one was a bit of a special case. Originally I somehow discovered and read Transcender two years ago and liked it enough to continue onto its sequel, at the time the third book in the trilogy was unreleased so thinking nothing more of it, I set the books aside.
Fast forward to this summer and I rediscovered the trilogy and reread the books in hopes of enjoying them again. While Transcender was an OK read, eve While I usually don't read let alone review books like Transcender by Vicky Savage, this one was a bit of a special case.

While Transcender was an OK read, even good in some senses, it wasn't anywhere near how I remembered it and left me disappointed. In terms of the world-building it was somewhat of a hit and miss with an interesting premise that couldn't follow through. Along with setting up an agency to control the fates of these worlds and different time lines and the whole transcender vs. Unfortunately, that's where the positive side ends as the rest of the book couldn't continue the momentum started in the beginning. Information was relatively scarce throughout the book, both in general and in regards of the other things that I mentioned; along with only OK descriptions and settings.
While Transcender started off on a good note, it unfortunately couldn't keep up with it and lost its quality the more you read. The characters of Transcender were thankfully better compared to the world-building and didn't get worse as the book continued. Personally I enjoyed the characters and the way Vicky wrote them into the book but once again they could have been better, more life-like perhaps or more background stories. Additionally, the "bad guys" were pretty weak for who they were, whether it be Ryder at first or the prince and his men later on.
The same goes for the romance, I'm not saying there should be NO romance but the amount in Transcender drowned out the other important events. With a bit more work, the characters of Transcender can become better and improve the plot line of the trilogy. Discovering Transcender was more of a mistake then anything else but despite that its still not a hopeless case. While I would only consider it an OK book at this point, with more work it definitely has the potential to improve. Transcender might be a good pick for people who enjoy indie books, romance, and only OK writing.
Originally posted on Never Ending Books I received this book for free to read and review by the author. Transcender: First-timer is about year old Jaden Beckett, who lives with her brother and her father ever since her mother died. On a stormy night, she is accidentally transported to Domerica - a country under a dome in a parallel universe.
Jaden finds herself trust into the life of Princess Jaden and into the unfamiliar world politics on a dying planet. Transcender was a surprising read for me. I had never heard about the author or the book before, so I didn't know what to expect. The strongest point of the book is definetely the world-building.
I found the parallel universe to be believable and strikingly real. I found the idea of a multi-universal corporation controlling universe-travels and trying to control the destiny of the differents earth very interesting. The book was mostly action-packed and interesting, but it was still the author's first book and there were a few scenes that were simply unnessecary. The character of General LeGare, for example, was mentioned all the time, but he never actually said anything throughout the book.
This way, I never really managed to grasp what his motives are and what he means to the story. And there was the aspect of the love story between Jaden and Ryder. It was cute and nice, but their romance wasn't believable. They didn't really have any reason to like each other apart from the inexplainable pull they felt toward each other. Problem about the "pull": it was literally unexplainable. Seriously, isn't there any reason at all in the world to love someone apart from it being simply "meant to be"?
I think there is. And since Transcender is a trilogy, the author should have given the romance between the two main characters more time and space. With that said, I would give this book 3. Since you can't give half-star ratings on Goodreads, I'll give Transcender 4 stars. I really enjoyed Transcender and I'm looking forward to reading the next installment of the series. What an amazing story, captivating your mind as you learn about Jaden and her travels to a alternate world.
Thrilling adventure filled with mystery and danger as she tag along and discover who she really is. A strong willed, determined young woman that is not afraid to face the problems head on as they unfolds in her life. Meeting the most spectacular young man Ryder Blackthorn. I was extremely impressed with this young and fierce chieftain who rocked her world.
He is everything a true hero is su What an amazing story, captivating your mind as you learn about Jaden and her travels to a alternate world. He is everything a true hero is suppose to be. Strong, decisive, brave, good leader, not afraid to show his feelings towards her, accomplished, and compassionate. If I had another daughter he would be the perfect candidate. You hardly notice it because it just holds your attention. From the lowliest servant to the villain. The blooming romance between Jaden and Ryder centers the story and the plot to be a perfect entirety that I can recommend to all lovers of YA and Sci-Fi stories.
I believe all ages can enjoy this book to the fullest. Taken to another world where life as Jaden knows it are different in all aspects and she learns to become a intricate part of that world while doing her best to safe those she loves. Her determined actions saved a few people but always stayed humble at her skills. No typical youth arrogance was displayed through out the story her willingness to learn and adapt and making the most of what she has, the forefront of the plot. My heart was touched at the end as the two lovers were separated and life had to continue without Ryder in her life.
Feeling the loss of that separation as Jaden struggles to get back to "normality" But do not fear my good readers the story does not end there. Well I hope not. A enjoyable adventurous read, looking forward to read Book 2 in the series. Well done Vicky Savage. Apr 02, Cynthia Stacey rated it really liked it.foqubeqevory.gq
This one is a tough one for me to review. It took a long time for me to read it. I'm not sure it was the books fault or that I was reading other books at the same time which I don't usually do. Anyway, I did enjoy the story. The world building was done exceptionally well and I could visualize it in my mind. Everything was in place. The story idea itself was excellent and at first I couldn't put the book down.

Then somewhere in the middle I got a little bored and would only read a short snippet at a time.
I don't think it was the writing, this was very good, but I think the story just dragged a bit in the middle so I got bored. I tend to like fast pased edge of your seat type books. The ending picked up and again I couldn't put it down. I prefer my stories to be independant of the sequel, but this one was very well done. The only thing that I didn't like which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of five is that the main character was a little off. She didn't speak or act like a 17 year old girl most of the time.
She seemed so grown up. I get the whole soul mate thing but what 17 year old from our world would be even thinking about that? Even if she says she is going to wait for a while before actually doing it. This is one of those books I wanted to love more than I actually did. On the one hand, as far as indies go, this is pretty well done.
It could use a little more polish especially with the names - oy, those are almost cringe worthy - even the title could use some tweaking but it's certainly nothing book breaking like can occur in indie books. On the other hand, the author takes a fantastic idea - one person jumping universes and taking over the life of the your self in that universe - and then d This is one of those books I wanted to love more than I actually did.
On the other hand, the author takes a fantastic idea - one person jumping universes and taking over the life of the your self in that universe - and then doesn't really do anything interesting with it. She jumps into a dystopian society where she's a princess and her mom does vaguely evil things and makes people marry at 20 or never marry seriously, what is with that trope in YA? Me though, as much as I wanted to keep going, I just couldn't.
I set the book down like last Thursday with every intention of picking it back up again over the weekend to try and keep reading it. And I just couldn't bring myself to do it. For me, that's the hallmark of a book that's just not for me. Jul 23, Cayla rated it it was amazing Shelves: freebies. This book. Is amazing.

Transcender Trilogy Complete Box Set by Vicky Savage
Feb 26, Amanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: , favorites. This is an amazingly well done book. It is probably one of the only books I've read that fluidly mixes several genre's together and still delivers one heck of a story. This review is more of a 4. I cannot wait to pick up the next book and see where it goes. But now Jaden's not sure where she belongs. In this world, she has her mother back a miracle she never imagined. She's known as Princess Jaden, a member of the royal family of one of the three surviving nations,and against her better judgment, she's fallen insanely in love with Ryder Blackthorn, the most wanted outlaw in the land.
Can the IUGA force her to go? Or is Jaden what others in the land beleive she is--a Transcender with the ability to travel among alternate worlds at will? She's not sure what to believe or who she can trust--except herself. Ryder, welcome to Mary Had a Little Blog! Thanks for taking a few minutes to stop by and answer some questions. And also tell Jaden I say thank you for lending you to me forever, I mean, for the night.
This is not something I do very often, since we have no bloggers in Unicoi. So Ryder, the first time you are introduced is when Jaden wakes up after she fell. What was going through your mind in that moment? An overwhelming sense of relief. When she fell from the cliff, I was terrified that she was gravely injured, and I felt enormously guilty—it was I who placed her in that peril. But when I attempted to use a healing wand to stanch the wound on her forehead, she opened her eyes and slapped my hand away. I knew then that she would be fine.
It seemed like you and Jaden had a pretty quick connection. I mean, those moments when you were riding Tenasi together and your arm was around her were pretty charged, even though it was early in your Can you tell us what you look for in a girl and what specifically drew you to Jaden?
It may have seemed like an instant connection, but our story goes back a few years when we first met at Warrington Palace.
Want to reply to this thread or ask your own question?
I was completely captivated. So it was with Jaden. When did you realize that connection was something more than just attraction and perhaps also the thrill of a forbidden romance? It was in the dungeons of Warrington Palace when she saved me from reeducation—a fate worse than death. The courage and generosity she demonstrated in rescuing me put me to shame. In a moment of clarity, I realized that her good opinion meant more to me than anything else on earth. Ah, my favorite spot is also where my favorite activity takes place.
Wide-open space is scarce in Unicoi, even the crops are grown inside multi-story grow houses. So the vast open field at the warrior training camp is my favorite spot. I have fond memories of training to become a warrior at an early age, but those skills must be honed in order to remain sharp. So I love to go back and practice my swordsmanship with young warriors-in-training. The thrill of competition and the smell of sweat and churned-up earth are exhilarating! You and Jaden risk a lot for love, for your families, for your very lives! How do you deal with all that stress?
One does what one must. What is life but passion and sacrifice and love?
