MS 70-685 book and trining CD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I lost the CD that was inside the training book. Is there a way to get the software with the "test" another way?

    Maybe somewhere it can be downloaded, or som new KIT exams are available.

    Regards

    I've used this service before and it's a raplacement policy if your disk is damaged, not lost.  I was required to send back my original CD. 

    If your CD-ROM or floppy disk isclearly physically defective (cracked, badly warped, contains a deep scratch, etc.), you can exchange it for a replacement CD-ROM or floppy disk

  • (correct me if I'm wrong, Mr. Wharton, I am not completely sure if the following is legal)

    Maybe you could get the content of the CD via a colleague/friend who also has the book. (since you have the actual book, i'm guessing this is legal :) )

    I'm pretty sure that the book and the CD state that the CD can't be copied.  Will check a couple of my press kits to see what they say.

    Once again I think it has to do with the fact that the CD comes with a PDF version of the book therefore the CD is covered by copyright laws.

  • No there's no other way of getting it unless you buy another book.
