    RRAS, DFS, RADIUS, Teredo....Site Link Local, Local Link Local...

    Whatever you have to do to get Configuring Addressing and Services, Configuring Name Resolution (IPv4 and IPv6), Configuring File and Print Services (especially for Unix)...do that. Those were my strongest areas. Configuring Network Access was more than adequate, but not as strong as the former. My weakest was Monitoring and Managing a Network Infrastructure.

    Look forward to a pass, brother!

    I seem to recall the majority of the questions on my exam were NAP, WSUS and as mentioned by most posters DNS. Good luck

    Thanks for the advice guys. I have to admit that I'm nervous about taking this exam. I haven't had the time I've wanted to study for it.

    Best of luck Veritas. I've been prepping for this one and I'm hoping to test first part of October.

    Hi,

    Goodluck Veritas!

    My 70-642 Exam is scheduled for Tuesday the 27 September next week... im also a bit nervous about the exam, as it will be my first MS Certification...

    if you dont mind me asking, how much does the learning material differ from Windows Server 2008 to Windows Server 2008 R2 revisions? Reason for asking, the majority of my study material still reflects on the normal Windows Server 2008.

    Cheers,

    You guys should read R2 material for these exams. Things in R2 are named differently, for example Terminal Services are called Remote Desktop Services, there are some Remote Desktop Settings that did not exist in plain 2008, there is the AD Recycle Bin that has been introduced in R2. When you are taking the exam in a time-pressure situation, these little things can make a difference. Maybe delay the exams by a week or so and read up the differences between plain 2008 and 2008 R2 on TechNet. There are more than a few articles on there to help you out.

    Good luck with the exam!

    Don't think anyone in here can delay, the new 14 day cancellation/reschedule period puts a damper on that one. Good luck to everyone in this thread, hope to see a few "I passed!" threads.

    Exactly. Are there any PDFs that go through the difference between 2008 and 2008 R2? I will certainly be doing some Googling on this.

    edit: I found a 2008 R2 PDF eBook that I forgot I had.

    OMG really? So you go to wait 14 days after rescheduling/cancelling? What a douche bag idea, so if there's an important exam to take and something urgent comes up at work, you are screwed. WTF Microsoft.

    Esse, it's not Microsoft, it's Prometric.

    They are tacking on a $35 for rescheduling/cancelling within the 14 day period. It's with ANY exam...IT or otherwise.

    This is an atrocity mate. What's the problem with letting people scheduling and rescheduling?

    Bro, I'm just as pissed as you are....Prometric was whining about people holding seats or some garbage. I'm pretty sure Vue will end up doing the same thing.

    Yeah it's bothering me quite a bit, I'd be considerably more comfortable with an extra week. But i'm gonna give it my best shot, should be just fine, i've got most of the concepts down pretty well.

    That stinks. What was your score? What areas do you think got you/didn't go so well?

    Yeah same thing on my side as well. Close enough that another week would have been enough. I plan on giving it at least 2 however. Did you do any of the chat sessions with Jason? He suggests the Kaplan practice tests and provided me a document that another student typed up, over 100 pages of notes. Let me know if you'd like it.

    I did better on some areas than others, but overall it was a lowsy score which I'm embarrased to show. My strongest area was File and Print Services. The others were not as good, but not terrible. My weakest area was Configuring Name Resolution. Some of the new R2 stuff did throw me for a loop. I'm going to get my hands on the new Microsoft 70-642 R2 exam book. I'm also considering buying a transcender 70-642 practice exam.

    Were those recorded? I never had time to attend any of them.

    Not sure, I did the one last night with him, wish I had the chance to do one a lot earlier to take a look at the Kaplan info and some other resources.
    Provided equal weighting on the questions I think I missed it by about 3 or so. Although i'll admit I did see a few things on there i'd never seen before, possibly beta questions. Looking at my score sheet it confirmed what I knew going in to the test though, I know i'm strong on addressing, network access. My monitoring and managing a network infrastructure was pathetic but I had it a feeling it would be, still need some DNS brush ups as well, saw some record types that I didn't recall seeing in my book or labsim.
