    That really sucks but I've seen professors do this alot. I had this professor that was the head of the information assurance department and he would essentially spam all of us with his crap. This guy also taught my cyber law & cyber crime class and still goes around SPAMing us.

    The Pilot exam with the 3 free exam vouchers was publicized quite a bit, too, and there was plenty of open spots. I was able to get in on that (luckily!). It seemed to be a better deal (although I WANT this one, bad!). So, I'm optimistic that this one will be available for most people.

    I knew there'd be a thread on this somewhere. I guess I'll try this along with my 647.

    Par for the course is something like 3 - 6 months after the exam goes live, but sometimes they do it sooner. You won't be seeing an official study guide for the beta exam, though.

    Actually I was just on the technet blog and i read a post saying"

    "I just finished the Prep Guide so it will be posted in a few days. Yes, 70-680 will count towards the MCITP:Enterprise Administrator, MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7 and MCITP: Enterprise Support Technician 7"

    UPDATE! It's now listed on the MS Learning site - haven't taken an indepth look at it, but it looks like it's similar to the 620 exam.

    Cool. A lot more being tested than I thought. This one looks to be more focused on the Enterprise than the Consumer like the 620 was. A lot harder.

    Wow, that looks much more like an enterprise exam. Deployment, EFS, NTFS, user profiles, application restrictions, IPv6, remote management, powershell, etc. I haven't even heard of some of the things like BranchCache. I'm way behind

    I think I'll be scheduling this for the last possible day. Fingers crossed Prometric doesn't have any problems then...

    okay, so I obviously didn't look at the exam info very closely...I scanned it over while at work & did initially see the part about IPv6 and went "awww crap!", but now that I take another look at it, I'm in agreement with dynamik & PC509 - it's more detailed & less non-domain-user-based than the 620 is/was. Hrm. I'd never heard of BranchCache either, but in doing some googling, it sounds pretty cool. Later this week, I'll have to take some time to really go through the proposed objectives/topics line by line & start digging deeper into Windows 7. And I'm with you dynamik, assuming I get a beta spot, I'll be taking this on the LAST possible day!

    Apart from downloading, installing and messing around with Windows 7, what other resources are available for preparing for this test?

    Great, thanks ! When the registration begins, I am assumming it will be from 12:00a.m PST is this correct? Some of us in the midwest might need to wake up at 2:00a.m if we would like to be one of the early birds.

    I've never heard of a beta filling up in the 1st day before, I'm sure you can wait until 6 or 7am

    Agree 100% - I installed Windows 7 now on my workstation and I have yet to find a program which doesn't work on it .. never even crashed on me (Vista retail crashed more than the W7 Beta ).

    The only "program" which doesn't really work 100% is the NVIDIA Control Panel (using latest Beta too). But apart from that - awesome OS - looking forward to the final product.

    LOL - should have shut my mouth. Just had to perform a system restore which worked 100%

    Screen went dark after a while - so it was either a blank screensaver or it went into sleep. Basically it didn't wake up anymore and even the boot loader was bust when doing a hard reset. So I guess it went into sleep which isn't a good idea with hardware Raid (Adaptec 5805) - its a known problem as it takes bloody ages (or it doesn't work at all on Windows 7).

    But like I say - restore worked perfectly (restore points ftw. :P)
