Exam 70-680 vs. 70-270 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am scheduled to take exam 70-680 (TS: Configuring Windows 7) next Friday.  I was curious how this test compared to exam 70-270 (The XP test).  I remember that I got quite a few simulation questions on 70-270 (probably over 12).  It still was no problem as I scored an 900.  I feel pretty confident that I am well prepared for 70-680.  I have read the MS press training kit book, did all of the practice questions, and have had quite a bit of hands on experieince in the past year.  I was just wondering if I could expect the same types of questions on this test as the 70-270 exam.  Many simulated labs? Does anyone have any insight on this.

  • 70-680 is completely different from 70-270.  I passed 70-270 with about 2 hours of studying.

     

    70-680 I have not passed in 1 try and I studied for more than 3 months with almost 2 years hands on.

     

    They aren't anywhere near each other.  Do your homework, its a hard test and its deserving of the certification when you

    pass it.

     

    Good luck

  • You may or may not get some simulated labs.  Certification NDA forbids peolpe from discussing this type of question.

  • Thanks Matt,

    I feel like I'm pretty well prepared so I guess we'll find out in a couple of days.

  • Matt,

    You were correct, this was definitely a difficult test.  I passed with an 850 so I was pretty excited.  I'm glad that I have had a quite a bit of hands on experience that covered the objectives in the past two years.  I read the MS press self paced training kit book and did the excercises but I don't think that would be enough for this one.  I ran into some material on the test that wasn't covered in the book.
