Exam 70-642 Has anyone taking this exam and passed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am scheduled to take the 70-642 exam and I wanted to see if anyone used practice tests to prepare. If so, did they help or should I find other means of preparing. I am currently using MeasureUp and I can pass those practice test with no problem but I don't want to be out of the loop if there are questions on the exam that are not covered in the practice test.

    Any other suggestions on how to fully prepare?

  • I haven't taken this particular exam (yet) but several sites indicate it's easier than the 70-640 (Active Directory) exam.  If you're doing well on the MeasureUp questions, and using the MS Press book and doing the exercises, it sounds like you've got a great grasp of the material.

  • What other study books (i.e. MS Press or Sybex) or computer based/video training (i.e. CBT Nuggets, TestOut, Trainsignal) are you using?  FWIW, MeasureUp tests fairly closely mirror the types of questions you'll see on the actual test, but they're not verbatim.   The key is to make sure you understand the concepts and material behind the questions.

  • I also have some TestKing practice questions and I am using Virtual PC to do the labs that are in the Microsoft Official Course book. I am going back over the topics that Microsoft say are covered in the exam to make sure I have a good understanding.

    Have you taken this exam? Did you pass? Is it hard or should I relax? I am so nervous about taking it for the first time. I am taking the Instructor-led courses and don't want to fail.
