After two failed attempts I finally passed the 70-688! icon_cheers.gif I am Considering going the Office 365 cert route rather than Server 2012.

Goals for 2014: 70-687, 70-688 :cheers:

    Great result! Well Done.

    Would you mind sharing your experience in regards to studying and labbing for this exam? Once I get 70-687 over with the next logical exam for me is 70-688, so any info you can provide about your experience will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks everyone! From other suggestions in this forum I had subscribed to free trials of Intune, as I saw much of that on the 70-688 on my overall attempts. About half of the questions changed from when I last took it back in December. More network protocol related questions this time around, which was interesting. I used Plurasight for the general video training initially, MeasureUp practice questions and believe it or not TechNet. Because I had already taken the exam twice I was able to identify my weak areas and work on those.

    Congrats on passing the exam! I am getting ready for my third attempt. I got the MeasureUP practise exams. I have the feeling they are helping. On the other hand. I am affraid I might be just learning the answers by heart and fail the actual test.

    What is your oppinion on it?

    I took exam 70-688 today and PASSED!!! I can't say this exam was easy. It took me 3 attempts before I passed and today when I took the test it was 90% different from the previous exams. I know everyone's struggle in this exam. I used the following items to pass this exam.

    Measure-up 70-688 Practice exams
    Brain **** questions
    Windows 8.1 Supporting Windows Book
    Hands on experience with Windows Defender, O365, Intune, Creating Storage Pools.

    I studied every question you can think of and got familiar with them on the how and why I chose this answer. In total I have to say I probably learned 300+ questions. (Don't depend on brain ****. Only how you will pass with brain **** is if you are extremely lucky). Also a lot of the brain **** questions are incorrect. I hope this helps anyone that's struggling with this exam. Good Luck!!!
