    I passed as well. I'm happy as I only did minimal study for it, but I had studied for 70-680 a few months before, and had played with Office 2010 beta a little.

    Not true in my case, I bought the book, and the voucher "I have 3 of them for 680, 685 and 686 as part of the certification packs"

    So I will have to take the 3 exams and pass by the middle of next year, I am not planning on going to server certificates for 2011.

    If I can pass a beta by luck, I must pass the others that I prepare for

    I passed as well. Study plus experience allowed me to pass 681 and 686 the same day. I already had my EA so I didn't need this as a client exam, but this counts for the MS partner Business Desktop Deployment qualification so I can deliver MS-funded deployment engagements.

    Congrats on that Claymoore!
    How do you take, and PASS, 2 MS tests in a single day. 1 test is enough to drain a normal person. lol


    Congrats to all above who passed and even to those who just ventured to take it and didn't pass.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    He draws on his tons of experience. Besides, I never thought he was normal.

    The 681 and 686 share about 80% of the same objectives, so it's more like taking the same exam twice than taking two different exams. I did the same thing back in March with the 656 MDOP exam and the 669 Desktop Virtualization beta because there was so much overlap between the two.

    Because of work obligations, it is sometimes easier for me to set aside an entire Friday for exams. Both days I knocked the exams out in the morning and took off for an extended weekend with the wife.

    I hope they correct the name of the certification as it appears on everything including transcript and certificate. Currently it states the following : "Windows 7, Deployment " as opposed to "Windows 7 and Office 2010, Deployment" It is hard for the viewer to notice a difference between this and the 70-680 exam as it is now. I am sure this will be corrected with time. For now I am going to use test name on the resume Windows 7 and Office 2010, Deploying. Not sure if anyone else noticed this or not. Usually the logo's and certificates are not available for a while later so I am sure this is just because it is new.

    I sent MS a mail and got the reply:

    Having verified our database, we have found that the name of your
    recently passed exam 70-681: TS: Windows 7 and Office 2010, Deploying
    does not appear properly in your MCP Profile.

    Please note that your case is being forwarded to the Technical
    Department of Microsoft in order to be solved at the soonest.

    Once we receive any feedback, we will keep you informed.

    Work is booking me in to sit this in a month, just started to have a look at the objectives today for it.

    Should be ok, i will setup some test machines and do some more deployments, interesting that Microsoft has no material for the exam available. No books, training etc from the website it only went like about 2 weeks ago?

    Ill start working through everything available on these forums, i havent signed in for ages, but i love these forums!

    I love to read and lab it before an exam not juts go on experience so far

    My score report arrived yesterday, and I passed with an 849 which is right where I want to be (my goal for any MS exam is an 850). Strongest areas were Configuring a Deployment Infrastructure and Configuring and Deploying Office 2010. My weakest area was Creating and Configuring Images, which I considered a strength going into the exam and didn't focus on during my prep work. Can't take anything for granted, I guess.

    I failed quite miserably, much worse than I thought. I either got to study harder or just give up taking these beta exams. Wonder what the freaking criteria is for grading these betas. I know that the purpose of a beta is that exam-takers provide feedback about the questions and the answer choices, and I provided lots of meaningful comments, not just stupid crap, but still failed. Whateva...

    I received my report today, Score:753, my strongest area was Office 2010

    Essendon:
    I passed 4 Betas so far "DHTI+(2006), PDI+(2007), Server+ (2009) and this one(2010)", I do not remember writing any feedback.

    For Betas if you answer correctly "by having the knowledge or by pure luck" you get the grade for the question.
