70-640 Self Paced Training Kit from MSFT Press - How "Good"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Morning!

    For a vast array of reasons, I'm coming to the conclusion I would like to start with exam 70-640.  I've found a thread here and there that touches upon this, but not quite what I'm looking for.

    Basically, my question is this; does the book reasonably include everything one might need to prepare for the exam?  Or more specifically, should I build my own Server 08 lab, or are there readily (and easily) available "virtual lab" resources?  Does the book come with a "virtual lab" of sorts?

    Thank you!

  • Hi Joe,


    I used this book and only this book to complete/pass the 70-640 exam back in 2008.

    I would highly recommend that you work through this book completing all virtual labs.

    The content covered in this is great and you should allow some time to build yourself a domain controller.


    Before you begin though, there is free virtual training for the basics of active directory on the Microsoft training page.

    You can find this information here, http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/default.aspx


    Best of luck and you can be confident that this is a good training guide.
