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,


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