  • Hi,

    I was wondering what I can expect from the exam, is it only answer questions or there is case scenario and such..

    Can someone please tell me what I can expect.

  • As with any exam, read a few different sources, as some authors might not express certain concepts well enough etc, to make you understand them.

    I passed yesterday i did use this book, it is very detailed in the newer stuff, but it glossed over some of the more day to day type stuff, which i was able to get from another book (windows 7 inside out, though that was a bit partonising in places)

    I got 750. there were 65 questions, and it did cover the full range of things. Also its not just about knowing the content parrot fashion, since the multiple choices were a lot of similar answers, and yes you do need to know the syntax of some typical commands to get this right (probably why i didnt get better marks). I actually found this harder than 70-642 because it could cover any number of things within the whole OS, not just one aspect of the OS technologies.

    Having done the 83-640 (on active directory) and literally only just passed it - i NEVER want to do a simulated exam again, if i can avoid it, that was just too nervewracking, as the /? commands were all missing/disabled.   

    Do make sure you read the whole question & dont jump to making a choice- one or two gave a bit of story that was of no relavence to what the last line was actually asking for

  • I knew about this reference, but still doesn't say anything about scenario questions, mini labs etc..

    Well I don't mind scenario questions\with answer you can choose from, but if i gotta remember all the syntax for imagesx,dism,bcdedit,bcdboot and so on this is a bit insane and useless i means knowing wich tools does what thats fine with me, but having to remember all the extra syntax is another story.. if i end up stuck on a cmd in real life i just use the cmd /help /? or my best friend google.

     

    Hope someone can clarify on this.

     

    thanks

  • No mini lab for sure.  Most of the questions are question and answers type.  You can see the practice questions in the book:

  • thanks for the reply, Yes im already studying with MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-680) I'm guessing that I can expect questions about syntax or how to do X with a cmd as long there is answers you can choose from it's fine with me. I was just scare i had to remember cmds with exact syntax without having any answers or references.

    I already score over 90% in the test exam for the first 4 chapters. Also i'm pretty sure the hardest part is about building images\deploying in this book at least it look like it for me. :)

  • Just go through all Microsoft official training materials. You should be fine.
