    I friend of mine took just before I took the 71-685. He said it was quite a bit more difficult than he expected.

    For that exam, he recommends focusing a lot on new group policies, Image creation and deployment and Branch cache. Basically, again, if you have the time to go through the resources that Hyper-Me listed in 71-686 Resources thread, it sounds like you stand a decent chance of passing the exam.

    How long roughly do you have to wait after sitting the exam to find out if you have passed anyway?

    Around 6-8 weeks after the end of the beta exam period.

    So, after taking the 71-686 myself, I can tell everyone that it hits very hard on Deployment. I would say that Deployment, it the most covered topic.

    It's funny, because the first 15 questions or so that I got, I thought were really easy. I was thinking, wow, this is easy and I'm going to pass. No sooner had I thought that, the test changed almost completely! I feel that I did pretty good on the exam, I think I stand a good chance of passing, but it was really difficult after those first 15 or so.... I think I got a few easy ones mixed in, but not many.

    Good Luck everyone!
