    Your friend is lame. Brain dumps are illegal, can have you get your certs stripped, and just devalue the cert. What is the point of cheating? It proves nothing other than you can memorize the questions and don't know the material. It is people like your friend that make it harder for us who actually obtain them by learning the material. Dumps only help in making employers think that certs are worthless.

    I appreciate the insight on the brain dumps, guess I was being a bit naive. I'll shy away from their use in the future, I'd rather become certified under my own esteem.

    I'm interested on how you setup the lab. I didn't get anywhere near as far as you did and it was taking to much study time.

    No, I've had no experience with them. And neither should you. Using brain dumps is wrong. Not only does it devalue your certification, but it also devalue's MINE. So STOP using them.

    You'd be suprised at how many people suggested that I use them as well. I think it just really retarded to spend money on one of these sites when you can just simply go to the library or ebay and pick up a book, read the thing, study, pass, and certify yourself legitimately for sometimes a 1/3 of the price.

    You use a braindump and then end up at the interview sounding/looking stupid.

    I studied for on and off for around 5-6 months. Honestly though, if I would have really focused, I could have done this in probably 1 month. I didn't really think the exam was very difficult. Not nearly what people on this forum (and other forums) make it out to be. Just know the concepts presented by Microsoft and go take the test. All there is to it.

    The best thing I could suggest to you is to go to the MS website and look at the objectives for the exam. YOU are the only one that can determine how hard the test will be (and you won't know until you go take it). So the best thing to do is to prepare for the worst. Know the ins and outs of everything listed in the objectives.

    In my opinion, the exam was not difficult. But MANY others would disagree with me. Just have a quick Google search of "70-680 difficulty" and it is nothing but pages of people complaining that the test is hard. You need to put in a lot of lab time to pass this exam. What study materials have you been using?

    I didn't take the xp or vista exams but from what I understand they were a cake walk. This, coupled with the fact that most people use Win7 and feel comfortable with it, makes people believe they are more prepared for the exam than they actually are. It was likely not that difficult for you as we on the forum warned you that this exam was pretty tough and you prepared for it accordingly. I did not think this exam was difficult my second time around either as I was much better prepared.

    It's all a matter of expectations and preparation.
