70-685 practical and/or theory RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm interested in taking the 60-685 exam but had a question about this.

    Is this exam only theoretical, via books, focused? Or does this also involve practice?
    In practice I have for now enough years experience I think :-)

  • Hi Jimbo,

    If by practice you're referring to having practical experience with the technology, then yes, practical experience with the technology you'll be tested on is essential. If you don't work with the technology on a daily basis, then experience with the technology in a virtual environment can suffice, although it's not ideal.

    If by practice you mean simulations on the 70-685 exam, then I would say that currently it's highly unlikely that you will encounter simulations on this exam.
