    Mate, gear up and give it your best shot.

    I'm just telling you what I did differently.... It may or may not be of help to you

    My recommendations before you hit the start button... remember you don't have to click straight through everything at the beginning immediately..take a moment to close your eyes and use the opportunity to recall.....If you're feeling nervous, anxious or stressed.. do some deep breathing relaxation. This helped me de-stress and focus.
    I actually made the mistake of reviewing my notes that morning before I took the exam. It made me more stressed and I had to just close my eyes and Woosa it away (if you get the Bad Boys 2 Reference :P)

    - While you're sitting in the exam room with the note pad, think about your weaker points, the stuff you took extra effort to remember.. Write it down.. all of it...
    - During the exam, if any other random thoughts about technologies/settings/... whatever...come to mind, write it down. It could save you down the track if you get stuck on a question and start getting frustrated.
    - As you know, You can always hit that review button and come back to it later.. if you're remotely like me... my brain will be processing a question in the background and the answer may not come immediately but It does down the track. Then I jump back to it. I don't know if it saved me or not but I came back and changed a few answers...

    As you know, I just passed. This either knocked me back a few points or just got me over the finish line.

    Best of luck to you Ksmith!

    Nice one Buckles and Domestic, glad you got it squared away. I also passed the 70-685 yesterday with a 766, hence being off the radar studying. To be honest, even though it was my second attempt at this exam , I found it easier than the 70-680. And I note from the MS transcript that they still give you MCITP which is a nice bonus! Best of luck to KSmith

    Buckles I am sorry to hear that ED's 2k8 series were not beneficial to you. I only recommended it to you because, you mentioned in one of your posts that you needed to strengthen your knowledge of 2k8 and Gpo's. It has really helped me with the 70-680 and I wouldn't have passed the 70-680 as there were few questions that I managed to answer correctly thanks to those videos. Microsoft exams are hard and the books only cover about 70% the rest is from experience at work, and the more you know the better.

    Anyway I am glad you passed mate , congratulations once again and all the best for the future.

    Good on you Judderman88, glad you passed it. Unfortunately I couldn't get ready in time and book it in may. So there goes my 2nd shot. At least this way now I can slow down and do things more thoroughly.
    Good luck ksmith.

    I passed it today guys with 900. I want to thank you guys for your advice. I was discourage after the first time I failed it. I think the grading scale for this exam focus more on sequence questions.

    This is also the impression I got after failing it the first time.

    Wow!! Congratulations! It makes perfect sense that sequence/multiple pick questions would have a higher weighting than your typical multiple choice...I'm also guessing the case studies may carry a different weighting too.

    Smilodon, Ed's 2k8 Series were beneficial!! ... It was what I started with this time around... It helped me get a far better understanding of how GPO's work. I went through all of Ed's Videos. And played around in my Labs as I went.... It was very helpful! I'm sure I mentioned it before? I swore I did.... anyway- dude, thanks for your advice! Its helped me to no end!!

    I subscribed to Pluralsight for two months as it became a great reference. There is a lot of content there for both 2k8 and W7, even if it's not specifically the 685.
