70-640 Exam on August 1st, 2011. Any Advise or Wisdom? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I've recently been studying for the 70-640 Exam: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring with the Microsoft Press book (which is no R2) and CBTNuggets, and Measure up questions on the exam (R2) I just did my first practice test today with the R2 Questions and got 68% on my first attempt. Which is good for first time, but there is some gaps in my knowledge I need to fill up before the exam that I am aware off.

     

    I heard a rumor that there is a practical in the exam where you have to connect to a virtual machine through RDP and do the configuring from there, such as scripting and setting roles up. I just wanted to clarify if this was true or not.

     

    Any replies are greatly appreciated,

    Matty Jones.

    Hi Jeff, and thank you for your reply

    You seem to be highly experienced with certification, In your experience, would it most likely to be questions?
