    Default This is what persistence looks like, gentlemen.

    A year and a day later, finally got there.

    I love it! Those Microsoft exams are INTENSE! I had to retake 70-640 once, but I only passed the 70-642 on the 4th try. Awesome job!

    I hate to ask, but did you have to pay for all the exams yourself? Mine were partially paid by my tuition.

    Thanks guys,

    PcTechLinc. I paid for all of my Server 2008 exams. My company paid for 70-680, and the first attempt at 685. I was too embarrassed after failing to ask for them to pay for resits. Haha

    With the server 2008 exams I bought a booster pack for each one, so it wasn't too bad though

    For anyone wondering, even though it's not listed on the Microsoft website, this still counts towards an MCITP.

    Just unexpectedly came up on my transcript! Made a good day even better.

    Nice! Those desktop exams are not any easier than the server exams. I failed that one too, luckily I had a second shot. The booster packs and second shot are good to take a little edge off the pressure!

    Awesome job! I failed that one and passed with minimal scores on my second attempt. If I had failed I am certain I wouldn't have taken the exam again. Too much stress.

    This reminds me of exam 70-697, a pretty tough nut to crack. Congrats!

    Congrats! 70-686 was tough, I failed that the first time. For anyone doing that to get their MSCA Windows 7, go find the video online called "deployment acronym soup" (or something like that). If I find it, I'll post. You need to have terms like DISM, WAIK, MAP, ACT, MDT, ImageX, APP-V, MED-V, WDS, SCCM all down solid. Its tough!

    I'll keep a look out for this, thanks. Although I'm already pretty familiar with all of this terminology from doing other MS exams. Besides MAP.. No idea what that is.
