    Again, my study tools were:

    CBT Nuggets for 70-680 (watched every video)
    Professor Messer videos for 70-680 (watched every video)
    Trainsignal videos for 70-680 (only watched a few videos)
    Read Don Poulton's book
    Extensive reading of Technet (whenever I found something that wasn't clear or I needed a better understanding of command line functions, I went here)
    Extensive home labbing (home domain using windows server 2012 R2, Windows 7 Ultimate, and Windows

    I probably spent close to 100 hours of time studying for this exam over the last month. I do work in helpdesk and have some interaction with the Windows 7 interface, but not normally on an enterprise-support level.
    Congratulations!

    PASSSSSEEDDDDDDD!!!!!

    782/1000

    Finally, this damn thing is under me.

    No need for me to go into detail...

    I did use the MS PRess MS Trainiing Kit for 70-680, I felt that book was actually better than Don Poulton's book. In my opinion... I just liked the foward, here it is style of writing vs the 'this is WAIK, Install WAIK, Press Next,'. I won't discredit his book however, it was good for practical experience if you follow along.

    Now, I'm going to eat this celebratory cheese cake.

    Next is either 70-686 or 685... Not sure yet.

    70-686 is all about deployment and supposedly far harder than the 685. I've been studying for the 685 myself, which is the Enterprise Desktop Support Technician exam. It's about troubleshooting in real-world scenarios. It's the one I'd recommend going for. I'm taking it in 3 hours, I'll let you know how it goes.

    Congratulations on the pass! You did it!

    LittleBIT, I passed the 70-685 today. Shoot me a PM and we'll chat. I definitely think you'd benefit more from taking it over the 686.
