  • Just booked - 70-680:Windows 7 Config?

    Has anyone done this one yet? Just thought i would get another newish exam out the way. Ill also be useing this towards my MCSE/MCSA side of things.

    Any tips on material to use? Again, been useing Win7 in busines enviroments for a while now so pretty used to it.

    I haven't done it just because I thought the Windows 7 MCITP required a certification from another vendor, but I just checked and that doesn't seem to be so. Not sure where that idea came from. Plus, I think I'm at the point in my career where desktop operating system certs don't really distinguish me. Maybe I'm wrong?

    I took the Vista version and the MSPress book was okay. Dry, as usual, but it hit the necessary topics and even came with MeasureUp exams.

      Nonapetide - Intresting point about the OS exams, the only reason im getting this one out of the way is to just count towards the MCSA/MCSE, as its the easiest route i think to get it.

      From there ill be mainly concentrating on exchange and Svr OS's, which is what my job pretty much is. Also need to finish me cisco certs (been working with cisco for over 5 yrs)

        We've just bought the MSPress book. Looks OK, won't be doing the exam for a while though, but need to do it for MCITP: EA.

              You gamer nick... was... "Cheater..."?! I bet that endeared you to your opponents.

              Hope you do well on the Cisco certs. I've heard those can be intimidating. But they do set you apart...

                Yeah, it sure did

                As for the cisco certs, im heavily involved with cisco at the moment and have been over the past few yrs, so experiance in the field it getting really good.
