    Loser? You are not a loser! Head up, get another source, and attack once again!

    NEVER GIVE UP!

    I put that on my Wish List on Amazon, I will probably pick it up when I get paid or my taxes come in, whichever comes first

    Sorry to hear that. Hang in there. You'll get it next time.

    What section was the hardest for you?

    You are only a loser if you give up and not try again.
    I recommend the MS Press book. I know, it's boring, but it covers all the concepts.
    If you have enough experience with Windows 7, Poulton's book would be enough. It's shorter and more fun but lacks details.

    You might also check out some of the 686 exam material. It does complement some of what the 680 covers. Darril's book for 686 helped me out as well as the MS press 686 book.

    Keep trying!

    This is definitely more likely to do with your material than it is to do with you. Try to use more varied sources for this exam.

    Also, checking out this thread, even though it is somewhat old, may be of some assistance to you:
    Passed!! 70-680 Analysis, Resources Used, and Advice.

    Good luck!
