    Beta notes for a beta exam. I'll work on cleaning up the formatting today.

    I'll also add resources as more become available.

    Done.

    I had the technet version already, but a download and printable version is nice. I found the DirectAccess Early Adopter's guide download and added it as well, for all your alternate reading location needs.

    Someone posted the following PDF on a technet blog :

    Right Click - Save As (that is my mirror though).

    Trouble is I don't find the blog anymore - or basically I don't know on which one it was posted anymore.

    This is an almost 300 page document :



    Windows Tools, Help & Guides | Seven, Vista, XP

    Haven't had a chance to check it out myself yet so I cannot really say whether its any good or not.

    Just read through it .. well .. kinda ..

    This guide is REALLY basic .. so I wouldn't "hope" this will help for the exam

    But if you want a nice overview about W7 - its good - just not very "technical" ... It shows how to install W7, how to add / remove programs, how to backup / restore, create user, Bitlocker, Homegroup etc.

    So like I say - seems to be a nice overview of the basic features anyway ..

    Yeah I see that.. Very light overview of W7, Good for a skim but wouldn't look to much more into it.

    They are 50% there. All we need now is the ability to natively mount ISO/IMG files without having to burn it.

    I want virtual DVD drive! now!

    I was reviewing some BitLocker info and I wanted to make sure I knew which version of 7 included BitLocker (Enterprise and Ultimate) and that led to wondering which version of 7 includes what features. The PC Magazine article has a good public walkthrough of the features. The Windows 7 SKU plan PowerPoint available on the MS Partner site is the best, but I don't know if you need to work for a partner to download it (I work for an MS partner).

    A closer look at the Windows 7 SKUs - Windows 7 Team Blog - The Windows Blog
    The Windows 7 Versions: What You Need to Know - News and Analysis by PC Magazine
    Windows 7 SKU Plan

    To summarize, all the cool new features (execept for network location awareness printing) require Enterprise/Ultimate - BitLocker, AppLocker, BranchCache, DirectAccess and Boot from VHD.

    thanks claymoore. this is all great stuff. its taking me a long time to go through it all. Yes, i am actually reading it all But this should really help me pass the exam. I am learning that Win7 is really pretty cool. Might actually be a cooler OS the Mac OSX. Actually, im pretty sure it is!

    *update : Took the test this morning. Seemed really easy after reading all of claymore's links. Thanks alot for the links Claymoore! I know there are some questions that I got wrong, but even those questions were not hard, I just wasnt fully read up on those topics.

    Thanks! Added your link and a link to the Windows 7 virtual labs (originally only Vista labs were available). But the best news is that automatic retrival of titles from the external links is now working. It's another Festivus miracle!

    I would also like to add some recommendations on books or CBTs if anyone has any to recommend for Windows 7. I will add the Resource Kit of course, but I am also looking for exam-specific recommendations if anyone has used the official Training Kit or other exam prep materials.
