    Question MCSA 70-680 how long to study

    I just signed up for this exam. Alot of the content looks familar as to what I do on a daily basis as a Network Tech. Building Workstations with Windows 7. We covered some of this while in I earned my IT degree but that has been three years ago. How long do you think it would take to study and earn this certification? I can only study about two hours a day.

    Also what book is the most helpful for purchase? I am already using CBT nuggets for this and don't have much money.

    For the 680, Prof. Messer's free youtube videos are great! I almost passed off those alone.
    Get your hands on some legit practice exams to help familiarise yourself with the way M$ ask questions. I would say to you- for this exam... 2-3 weeks and book it now so you're working towards a target.

    Good luck!

    I've been reading things that say how hard the exam is its making me nervous. I think I will stretch it out a month. What practice test can you reccomend? Any books? Any other materials like labbing or something help?

    Professor Messer's Free 680 Videos are ace!

    These two are free: MCTS 70-680 Practice Exam
    Practice Quiz: Free Exam Prep, Review and Practice Tests

    Practice quiz will email you questions every day which I found help me stay sharp

    The Microsoft Press Book comes with 4 sets of exam questions included. The book is pretty good too.

    Then you have Transcender and Measure up who are both regarded as the Go-to people. For my 685 Exam, I gave UCertify a shot and found them very helpful too. They have some nice interactive questions as well as a plethora of questions and practice exams (five from memory)..

    For Labbing, you can set up a VMWare Workstation with a couple of Clients and a Member Server/Domain Controller etc.
    W7 Ult and W2k8 are both available out there and have a trial period you can push out to a couple of months.







    Finally, the forum itself is a solid repository.. read through other people experiences. For me- I allowed three weeks.
    70-680 Resources

    Good luck and inbox me if you need any more help.
