Training Book Content Query RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have the 'configuring windows 7' for the 70-680 exam.  Instead of the 'suggested reading' found in previous training I now find links to technet.  There are 120 technet links in addition to the fourteen chapters of reading which seems too voluminous for any single exam. 

    The http://www.microsoft.com/learning/books/online/serverclient link has long since been dead.  O'Reilly Publications who now technical support i.e. print corrections routinely refers back to Microsoft for content ammendment. The training company 'Measureup' has the included CD review exams.

    I think it less than appropriate to leave the candidate to chase down so many in search of where one should focus efforts.  Guidance sought

    This was found by simply doing a search on Microsoft's site.

  • Much thanks for your timely reply.  Please note that I've had the print corrections since I've had the book.  There are the remaining items that I was most interest in.

    1. For an 800+ page book I thought it much that an additional 120 weblinks were also likely items for the exam.  Are they simply technical references?
    2. There are supposed to be updates for the text itself, not corrections, that would be available to match the evolving nature of the exam
    3. The book also states that the companion CD has review exam material that would also be updated.  "MeasureUp' the producer refers one to Microsoft who then refers to O'Reilly publications.
    4. I would want to leverage any current and available information to best focus my efforts

    I appreciate the support and look forward to a reply

  • The 120 additional links are just for additional information, they likely mention some material that will be on the exam, but certainly not all of it. To know which sections will be on the exam review the following:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-680#tab2

    Also, prior to taking the test I suggest reviewing the testing platform  as MS has recently started to move towards more virtualized testing as opposed to the classical 40-50 multiple choice questions.
