    Default Passed 70-685!

    Happy to say I passed this morning after failing on Thursday.

    If you're looking to take this exam my advice is:

    Get a good nights sleep (seriously, I had about 4 hours due to test anxiety on Thursday and failed it miserably because I was too foggy and couldn't read the questions correctly)

    Read the questions!! I can't stress this enough. I see multiple threads pertaining to labbing (which is important) but I found this time that making sure you read and understand the questions will usually lead you to the answer. I labbed a little bit, but I work in an environment with R2 so I didn't lab as much as others on this forum. There were some answers on the first test I know I got wrong and going back today and re-reading them it was like "duh."

    Between studying for 60+ hours and reading the MS Press book cover to cover multiple times, I found that knowing the underlying technologies of things like BranchCache, DirectAccess, IKEv2 was enough, don't try to know everything or your brain will explode. You will also over think the questions and miss the obvious answer.

    Good luck!

    So the 60+ hours of studying was basically just reading the microsoft press book and doing sample exams and labbing?
    Did you bother with much cbt videos or anything similar to those?
