Easiest MCTS Server 2008 Exam RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working towards an MCITP: Enterprise Admin certification but am not sure which exam to start off with.  I am looking on some advice as to which is the easiest of the MCTS exams (640, 642 and 643 or the Windows 7 exam 680).  I assume it is 680.  I was going to start with 640 but it is a bit daunting and I don't think I want 640 to be my first ever Certification exam.  I want to get my first certification out of the way asap so I can work on the rest.  Any advice would be appreciated.  I have done some basic sysadmin jobs in the past but currently work doing it support so that might give you an idea as to what my current skill set is.

  • You are right. Windows 7 or exam 680 would be the easiest, which will give you a mental boost to go after the rest.

    Good luck

  • Its quite an obvious thing to point out Windows 7 as the easiest exam of all. What that guy really needs to know is - which amongst the rest 70-640,70-642 and 70-643 is the easiest after Windows 7 to pursue?

  • To my mind, 70-642 is easier to comprehend than the other two.

  • Thanks for that.  That will be the second exam I go for.

    For someone with only a small amount of experience admining an SBS2008 box, how much time do you think it would take to get upto speed enough to pass this exam?
