    Default 70-680 Scheduled

    Taking exam next Wednesday, January 5, 2011. Feel pretty good about it. I've used CBTNuggets, labbed it up, and have been using Win7 for a few months.

    Still NERVOUS!!!

    I'd pick up a book or some other video. I'm mainly using labsim but I grabbed a copy of the cbtnuggets to try. It amazed me how much info is left out in the nuggets. Very first video they forget to go over that you can't just copy a install cd to usb stick and boot from it. You have to use bcedit or something around there and the boot.wim file to make the stick bootable.

    Just my opinion. Good luck!

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure he covers formatting the thumbdrive before copying wim files to it. I'm just trying to focus on the little things, because the way I understand it, MS exams will get you on the little things.

    would you have to know the upgrade table and the difference between all the editions?

    To my understanding of the objectives, Yea you do. I've seen questions where it lays out specs about a computer and asked you which version can you install or from Win 7 basic edition, which version can you upgrade to that will allow something like joining a domain. But these were practice test. It does say you should know the differences in the exam objectives so I would commit it to memory.

    Good luck NOLAJ. By the way, how did you set up your lab and what did you use?

    As far as knowing which versions support which features, I would assume so. i.e. Branch cache only being available on Ent. and Ult.

    Thanks, i never heard of Technet Labs, I am going to try them out. I have had VMWare for months now so I'll be using that as well. One of the few things i actually want to learn how to do for me personally is set up branch cache.

    Super, it's probably Microsoft Snacks you're referring to.

    Ensure you review the Deployment chapters in the MS Press book or whichever book you are using.

    The exam is heavy on Deployment.
