MS 70-680 Exam RRS feed

  • Question

  • sit the 70-680 windows 7 exam today. Most of the questions are related to Active Directory Domain Controller. I think there should be less questions related to Active Directory Domain Controller. It is very difficult to candidates like me who are not afford coaching.  I was decided to study step by step and complete all the essential certifications one by one.

  • Hi, Amit.

    Here is the "Skills Measured" for the 70-680 exam that you recently sat: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/exam-70-680.aspx#dl-ID0EAAAAAAAADBA

    I understand your frustration with the exam content. AD DCs (Active Directory Domain Controllers) are usually something you would configure with the server and not with client OSs.

    I suspect the exam is designed to test network administrators who are in charge of deploying and managing Windows 7 and their users with a network, which most likely will be AD.

    I don't know if you failed the exam. If you did fail it, you can study up on that topic a bit and retake the exam. As you study for this topic, try to remember what the AD DC questions were about. Gear your studying to pass the exam questions. When you retake it, you might get a completely different set of questions from Microsoft's 70-680 exam question pool. It sounds to me like you got an unfair number of questions from the pool that focused just on AD and not on other Windows 7 topics.

    I understand the cost of classroom training is high for someone paying for it themselves.

    You may want to consider free training from Microsoft, such as Microsoft Virtual Academy (http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com). Often times, the courses here are based on the Microsoft training courseware.

    Alternately, you can try using free study guides on the Internet, such as: http://eddiejackson.net/web_documents/70-680_Study_Guide.pdf or this: http://www.mcmcse.com/microsoft/guides/70-680/70-680.shtml

    You may also want to consider purchasing a 70-680 study book from Amazon, (a used study book from Ebay), or a practice exam from Transcender, SelfTest Software, or MeasureUp.

    NOTE: This forum is usually monitored by test takers like you and me and is not used as a way to offer feedback about their exams. If you want to communicate directly with Microsoft about exam content or challenge individual exam questions/answers or offer feedback, you can use the Item Challenge Form listed here: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/certification-exam-policies.aspx#item-ID0EEAAAACAAAAABA Please take a look at all the other information on this page.

    Good luck, Amit!

    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson
