Passed 70-687 !!!

To say I'm elated is an understatement. I have studied to the point of mental exhaustion for the last two and a half months and even today I thought it was all beyond me.

It's so stressful sitting in front of that screen dreading what horrible questions are coming up. I have to say CBT Nuggets and labbing the stuff pays dividends.

I spent far too much time trying to dig too much into Technet but it's good to dip into the overviews for each area. Also spend too much time stressing over 100s of Powershell commands.

Hope I can manage 70-688 before end November but I feel more confident now.

Cheers for the support - it's good to know there are lots of people on here going through the same challenges to get these exams.

My first Microsoft exam for 16 years ! Now off for 36 hours sleep....

    Well done culpano!!! I am pleased for you.

    Much like yourself I reentered IT exams after 10years and sat my first MS exam a couple of months back (as you already know), its a great feeling to pass exam an exam like 70-687 as you prove to yourself you still have it, and you realize its not an impossible task that it can sometimes be made out to be.

    Cheers manc. I don't feel as much under pressure to get 70-688 to be honest now as I can stick MCP on my CV LinkedIn. I may be doing Windows 7 70-680 next then start on Windows 10 when there is some material out their. CBT Nuggets have a Win 10 course in progress as we speak.
