70-680 Command prompt Lines RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm fairly new to the computer and certification world and my school is requiring that I take this certification  (70-680) as one of my courses.

    My question is about the command prompt lines (which I'm fairly new to as well), mentioned in the study material (I'm reading the Microsoft Press book).

    Do you need to remember each and every command prompt line option in its entirety, or is it enough just to remember what each option and tool is used for?

    e.g. Remember Oscdimg is used to create an ISO image, or the entire command line to create the ISO image.

    Also, can anyone recommend any books or links regarding the basic principles of working with command lines?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

                   It is better to remember as much as possible.Remember everything as you can do.

  • Of course it is best situation if one could remember every command and every switch but for being realistic -it is not possible. At least for normal human capabilities.

    I have passed 11 Microsoft certification exams and i am quite used to test format.

    They ask something about every topic that is listed in "skills measured" in MS site. And in some of those topics is included command line tools and switches. As most questions are multiple choice type of questions, all you need to know is to recognize correct command from incorrect ones. They do not ask you to write whole command to achieve something. I think it helps a lot.

    First search result from google with search: "70-680 command line jackcobben" gave link to pdf book which contains most (all?) command line tools and switches combined to one book.

      Rather than learning it inside out, i would read MS Press book or some other 70-680 book from cover to cover, doing practice tests and watching video lectures. Doing labs with virtual / real machines is strongly recommended. 
    It's easier to learn things by doing than reading.

    I agree.

    I am currently studying my 70-680 and have very little practical material provided with my course from the company I sourced.

    I am using Microsofts Virtual Labs, but cannot find any that refer to CMD commands for multiple installs or migrations.

    This is something I would like to practice on as it does come up in the practice exams.

    I believe that the more practical experience one can gain, even with making and correcting errors, the higher chance you have of passing your exam.

    Reading books and watching videos is not best for me.

    Practice makes perfect.
