70-646 Windows 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello every one and thanks a lot for this forum. I just have to complain about this. Today I had 70-646 and thank god I passed BUT it was not mentioned in the skills measured at the exam page that it refelct Windows 2008 R2. I know this is true for other exams like 70-640 and 642 but I never thought it reflect 646 because no one said anything about it and the page were we are supposed to look at doesn't reflect it as well.

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-646&locale=en-us#tab2

    I've been studying for 2 months and I've used Windows 2008 all the time at my lab and never tried R2 because I thought it's not included and I don't have any book for it as well. It's very hard for me anyway to find R2 book were I live.

     

    So I went today and was prepared got 40 questions which some of them reflect R2 then 4 case studies that all of them reflect R2 and contained many terms which I didn't understand.

    I passed with 775 happy now but was very nervous the whole time it took me 2 hours to finish.

     

    So for the sake of others can MS at least update thier page for 646 and say that R2 is tested

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Good to hear you passed your exam.. congrats on that. A lot of people are asking the same questions and making comments on this topic. So you did the right thing bringing it up again. You may want ot know that it actually helps see this blogpost about it:

    http://borntolearn.mslearn.net/btl/b/weblog/archive/2010/10/04/the-impact-of-technology-service-packs-and-revisions-on-exam-content.aspx

    So in short always learn about the newest technology (including R2's) and keep sharing your thoughts about it.

  • This is a good "heads up" on R2.  You can access some excellent resources through e-training as well that will give you some additional information on Windows 2008 R2 including changes in the terminoligy etc.

  • The Microsoft Press MCTS 70-646 Training Kit has a revised version for R2 material. There will be a '2' on the spine of the book.

  • 72-646 has testlets now, they are nearly impossible. Failed twice so far. Read MS Exam books twice.

    Is there a difference between 72 and 70 series save the student discount?
