    Default 70-697 vs 70-698 (Installing W10 vs Configuring W10) - difficulty?

    Hi guys!

    Bit of background, I've been in IT a few years but mostly at entry-level Helpdesk roles. I feel I am a beginner in terms of general knowledge.

    I just signed up to CBT Nuggets and noticed that they have the 70-698 videos ready, but not the 70-697 quite yet (work in progress). I therefore started watching the 70-698 ones and embarked on that.

    I am about 15 videos in, and am finding it increasingly difficult and am struggling. It's frustrating that when I don't understand something from the video, there is nobody I can escalate to or ask from their subscription (I wish they answered questions). I might be a little over my head.

    For example, the video on Sideloading Apps, it touches on developing your own basic applications, then using Powershell to load it. But it doesn't mention whether developing a basic application could be in the exam, or how you would actually do that. Many of the Powershell commands are also hard to remember for me in terms of the syntax. I do not have any coding experience or much experience with any GUI that doesn't allow a mouse/KB.

    Is the Installing Windows MCP any easier from a starting point? I've installed W10 hundreds of times.

    Do people generally buy the Microsoft Study hard-copy study guide from Amazon to go with their video watching? Are there any other good resources?

    Thanks so much!

    TechNet is always a good option for solidifying understanding.

    For instance, for your Sideloading, there's this article: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...-in-windows-10 and that mentions the PowerShell Add-AppxPackage command. (for anything Microsoft these days and going forward, basic powershell understanding is essential, worth taking time to delve into that). Keeping that in mind, do a search for appxpackage and review syntax and structure of the command
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...(v=ws.11).aspx . I've done ok just knowing that sideloading will require the add-appxpackage , then specifying the location of the package, and then a dependent if necessary. It's unlikely that they're going to ask you to develop an app, just how you would apply it

    (going further is good for knowledge but unlikely to be so in-depth, ie https://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh856048.aspx )

    Extra reading and hands-on experience always serves well on an MS exam. Read about it, do it in GUI, do it in Powershell, find another source if it's just not making sense.

    Welcome to the forum and best of luck!

    Thanks for the encouragement, Piers!

    Microsoft InTune, I'm not seeing this in the Menu's in the Admin Center anymore?

    I installed Enterprise Mobility, but I still don't see any menu for InTune within the 365 Admin Centre? I'm not sure where I'm going wrong?

    When it comes to the InTune section - it mentions deploying it via Group Policy / via WIM / via SCCM - do I actually have to know how to do these? As none of this is covered in the videos for the course on CBT Nuggets ;(

    Or is it more likely to make me deploy it manually / via the portal?

    Thanks!

    You can only go by what MS has published.. I ran through these pages to get an idea of what was going on

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/

    and you have to root around for powershell
