    What the 680 has in common with IT Foundations as it's required for every emphasis in IT (Operating Systems). IT Foundations I isn't anymore though, but it used to be required for every emphasis. Databases and NDM still require it...not 100% sure of the others.

    I hope it is the golden ticket like DGs book but that remains to be seen. As far as the easy read? Installing window7 is by far the most boring topic for me and I actually read that entire chapter without realizing it lol

    @bokeh
    How will the online study work? I wish I thought of that. I think I am the only one of my local IT circle that bothers with certifications.

    I will be watching this with great interest...one red flag I noticed about this book is that it's published by Que, the publishers of Exam Crap. Another thing I noticed is that the guy (Don Poulton) looks like he's been around since the invention of the loom...lol.

    Having said that, I am in no hurry to take the 680...I have been slowly creeping up to my 642 studies and I scored high on the uCertify diagnostic test for that recently. I'm brushing up on whatever I feel weak on and if I pass that exam, I'll move on to the 640 (which this author also has covered in this same series: Amazon.com: MCTS 70-640 Cert Guide: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring (9780789747082): Don Poulton: Books

    If the 680 is good with this book though, I'll buy it and do it after 640, but I gotta see how you do first.

    I always seem to be the guinea pig in my circle . It seems every time i set a goal, there is a whole bunch of things that come up. I wasn't able to get any studying in today... Bullocks.

    Its actually 2 free tries, all 3rd and subsequent attempts must be paid out of pocket by the student, though you still get the discounted price. And really they aren't free since thats what the tuition is for.

    Going to try again on February 9th. Watching CBT Nuggets videos, reading the Don Pulton Book and working in labsim again. I need to lab something but I can't get my vmware to work right. My 2008 server won't connect to me Win 7 Client. Need to figure that out first.

    Good luck, don't let the fail get you down too much. The 680 is a beast for an OS exam, in fact, most of the stuff I learned from the 680 directly translated to success in 2008 realm. Just remember, you might see PowerShell and WinRM stuff again if you plan on pursuing Server 2008, lol.
