    Default Passed 685

    Passed the 685 yesterday, and passed my 680 back in October. I now have a new certificate on my cube wall. Now the powers that be in my office have decided that A+ is the next cert I should focus on. What do most of you try to focus on after completing the MCSA?

    I'd focus on Server if you guys are a MS shop. A+ is a step down, truthfully.

    How was the 685 exam?

    the 685 is/was a lot easier for me then the 680. I studied off and on for the better part or 2 years before i felt comfortable to take the 680. but only 2 months before i took the 685, and I scored a 900 on it. Where all I will admit is I passed the 680

    Congratulations! That is quite an accomplishment. I really need to sit for both the 680 and 685 in the near future. Best of luck with the A+.
