    Question How did you study for 70-697 Exam?

    o far I have done the following:
    -Watched the entire 70-697 on IT Pro TV series.
    -Read part of the MCSA Cert Guide for 70-697 and 70-698
    -----I got through chapters 5,7,9, and 10.
    ----------I made note cards for the chapters I finished reading.


    For labs:
    -I have been doing the practice labs on IT Pro TV.
    -Trying to complete the labs from the Cert Guide book any of the labs they have.
    --Look for Intune labs. I think Microsoft has some....

    Tracking Exam ---- Objective Understanding:
    I have a Excel Spread Sheet:
    -I place all the exam objectives in a excel sheet and mark each one GREEN when I fully understand that objective.
    -Red = I don't understand it at all and need to review it.
    -Yellow=I need to review it


    Next steps:
    -Finish the flash cards for chapter 5,7,9, and 10.
    -Finish all the chapters in the cert guide related to the 70-697 test.
    -Watch Skillsoft vidoes related to 70-697
    -Finish all labs - Practice IT labs
    --Look for Intune labs. I think Microsoft has some....


    Final Steps:
    -I understand all exam objectices.
    -Take Skillsoft pracice test. Score 90% or above
    -Take a Transcender practice test Score 90% or above
    -Take a Measure up exam and score 90% or above.



    Questions:
    1) Is this a good plan? I have a hard time staying focused. I can get distracted easily. It's really hard for me to watch a 30 minute video.

    2) Also, how do you study for Microsoft exams? They seems like a diffferent beast when compared to the Comptia exams.

    3) How did you study for the 70-697?

    I'm finally getting around to finishing up the 70-697. I got distracted by other life issues after passing the 698 earlier this year. Currently I'm watching the CBT Nuggets videos, and reading the Microsoft book for this exam. I'm taking notes as I read and watch the videos. I'll probably do a couple of practice tests after watching all of the videos and then focus on the questions that I am getting wrong. This is basically the same thing I did for the 698 exam and I passed on the first attempt.

    Something else I'm trying this time is using LinkedIn's Learning videos. They have some videos dedicated to the 70-697 exam and there is a 30 day free trial. My job gives me about 5 hours a day to spend studying so I might as well take advantage of the free time.

    I've been doing a mix of the MCSA Cert Guide, Measureup practise exams and pluralsight videos. Failed the first time and have my second attempt tomorrow.
    From what you've listed, it seems very thorough which is a good thing for this exam. I'd say you were doing the right things.

    Great just great

    Well I'm not sure what to do at this point.

    I haven't bought the Measure up practice exam or the voucher for the 70-697. It would take me a while to pass both exams 70-697 and 70-69eight.

    I'm still not sure at this point on what I should do.

    I appreciate the info.

    Wow, this kinda sucks. I've been going hard on studying for 697. I was hoping to get it done by the end of the year. I guess it won't hurt to have it on my resume. I've already passed 698.

    I wonder how this will affect status as an MCSA or how it will affect my path to being an MCSE.

    Hey Guys,
    No harm in getting the MCSA Windows 10 certification because like most of their current changes they might offer a transition exam to bridge the 2. I'm currently studying for my 533 and I'll follow it up with the AZ-102 exam before March 31st, 2019.
    I'm glad I held off on the MCSA Office 365 because of the constant changes MS announces and nobody is updating the online course content.
    I earned my MCSE:Mobility ( Win10 + 398 ) this year and come March 2019, all those exam are retired and the upside is I gained experience with the certification.

    Did not know that, currently studying for the 70-744 now and soon(possibly fingers crossed) work is putting myself and couple other people into 5 day VCP 6.5 training. 70-698/697 would of been a good one to have, but don't think I can squeeze it in by March. Thanks for sharing!
