    Default 686 passed

    Failed a couple weeks back with a 600 and re-sat today. Got a 720. Glad it's over.

    Probably the most difficult of the Win 7/2K8R2 family. Here's my ranking of the difficulties from hardest to easiest:

    686
    640
    685
    642
    680
    646

    Onto 70-417.

    Haven't started it yet . I decided to take a long break this summer and get back into studying around August. When are you starting yours?

    I've just started on the MS press book now. I'll give that a couple of reads through, then watch the CBT nuggets. I get the feeling this will require a LOT of labbing/technet supplementation.

    Yep, it's going to be a big one. It's 3 exams in one, isn't it? I plan to use CBT Nuggets for mine also. It really helped me through my 686 so I'll give it a shot. Going to need to set up a few VMs and play around with the servers too.

    I felt like the CBT nuggets for 686 basically gave away specific questions on the exam, I'm not sure how I feel about that. It certainly helped a lot in passing though, that's for sure.

    Also, thanks Davis.
