    How do you guys plan on practicing for this exam? I do not have enough hardware to setup a test of deploying Windows 7 using Lite Touch, Zero touch, or upgrades. I do not think that there is enough time to setup VMs either.

    I already passed 70-686 so I'm going to quickly review that material and focus the Office 2010 resources. I will do labs with VMs. The time consuming part is not setting up VMs, but rather learning the material.

    There is plenty of time to setup VMs for the deployment stuff. What is needed, maybe two servers? That's 2-4 hours max, depending on your hardware. You can do a simple Windows 7 install (1 hour) and use that as the base for doing image captures, etc., and build a few empty VMs (5 minutes) for deployment targets.

    Has anyone taken this yet that wants to report on the feel of the test? I am taking it on Saturday.

    Took it today and I think I passed. I took the 686 immediately following the 681 and passed it easily with an 895, and since there is so much overlap I should have done well on the beta.

    I think there were more Office questions on this exam compared to the 624 Vista and Office exam. Nothing too challenging, but you definitely need to cover the Office deployment and configuration methods. I expected plenty of MDT and SCCM questions and I was not disappointed. There were more Unattend and small-scale deployment type questions than I expected so that may have hurt me a bit.

    Thanks for the info. I had not put much into the Office deployment part of the exam. I am taking the test tomorrow morning. I will put some time today into the Office part now.

    i did this exam today. As already mentioned, expect a lot of Office 2010, MDT and SCCM. Some of the stuff was pretty basic and some of the questions were quite challenging.
    If i passed i may have just scraped thru (hopefully). Got some stuff i wasnt really expecting but in hindsight i should have looked into. I used it mainly as a warm up for the 70-686 which i plan on taking in a week.

    I think the 686 should be a warm-up for the 681. I thought the deployment questions on the 686 were easier than the questions on the 681. I actually didn't study for the 686, figuring that between my preparation for the 81 and prior experience with win7 that I would be fine.

    There were more group policy questions on the 86 which was a pleasant surprise. Both because I think an EDA should have a good understanding of how to manage workstations with gpos and because I like the free points.

    I took the exam yesterday, I do not think I did very well. It was a lot harder than I had thought it would be. No big deal, I like taking beta exams.

    I took the exam on Friday, I fancy a passing score since I got a lot of deployment using GPO's questions, several WDS ones and the rest of them were Office 2010, MDT and SCCM. Quite surprisingly, I had a question or two from Terminal Services and NAP. Let's see...

    I was pretty surprised at the depth of a few of the questions around MDT. I took it Friday as well. Some questions were no-brainers and others took a bit of time to think about. I felt the test was a little long. I don't think 75 questions are necessary for testing on deployment of Win 7 and Office.

    I took the exam today, I do not think that I will pass

    I think I will go for the real exam when it is released, the course material seems interesting.

    I saw the thread update and figured the results were finally out.

    Prometric still says 'Tested' for me as well. According to the MS learning site, the exam will be released on 9/24 so I would expect results any day now.

    Now I thought I had a decent chance at passing this exam, but I maintained my 100% record on MS beta exams with a fail. Damn.

    How did you guys go?

    I failed as well. No worries, I did not think I was ready anyways. This was not an exam I really needed anyways. I will just take the regular Windows 7 exam for the EA track.

    I am shocked.

    I passed!

    Preparation time = 5 minutes, looking at the summary created by a TE Member - I can not find the thread, but file name is 70-680_Revision.docx by Wedge

    I have 0 experience with the topics covered in the exam.

    Now this puts more pressure on me to pass 70-680.

    I'm really really shocked.

    It actually puts less pressure on you as that test will count as the client test (as the Vista version did before it) toward the MCITP:EA.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.
