Hi All,


Would anyone be able to recommend any books for studying these certifications?

Also, do anyone have some tips on what they used for study etc?

Regards,
Bob

    There are not very many books out there and they seem dated.
    i am looking at doing these tests too.

    I just found two courses on O365 on EdX.
    they are free. I will go thru them and hopefully find they are good.

    hey
    I'm currently studying for both the exams as well, and have the official books

    the issue is the exams were updated June 2016 and the books have not been updated.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/learning/exam-70-346.aspx now has the official changes showing it (the book discusses DirSync, not AD Azure Connect for example)
    the official change document: http://download.microsoft.com/download/B/7/0/B7012C5B-5153-4CC9-8651-BC8FA1B15FCC/OD_70-346_changes.pdf

    You can do the search for the PDF for 70-347.

    Our company had a subscription with CBT Nuggets, but we closed due to crazy renewal costs (I heard it was around £20k for us) so we are trialling ITPro TV. They have 70-346 pre-changes, and have just started to release content for 347 but this will include the changes.

    Only other advice is to get some decent up-to-date practice exams and work through that content.

    The official books are from 2015 so are now so far out of date as to be worthless for the exam.

    There is a great guide here for both courses that gives links to the live documentation using the exam blueprint so is by far the most effective way to study the material on paper, but if you need video training you are likely to also get something out of date I'm afraid. The links are:

    https://absolute-sharepoint.com/70-346-study-guide
    https://absolute-sharepoint.com/70-347-study-guide

    Piers has linked to the 347 course above (don't want to steal his thunder here).

    There are similar links here:
    https://anderseideblog.wordpress.com/reading-lists/ms-exam-70-346-managing-office-365-identities-and-requirements/
    https://anderseideblog.wordpress.com/reading-lists/ms-exam-70-347-enabling-office-365-services/

    You will find some of the links are dead, but a bit of searching and you can find their new links - it reflects the constantly changing nature of the subject matter.

    I just passed the 70-346 exam today. Most of my studies came from the Official Books, MVA, ITProTv and migrating 20-30 customers to Office 365. In most of the more recent migrations I did most of the work I could through PowerShell. I only scored a 742 but I don't have any experience with AD FS.
