MCSA Windows 10 697 on Saturday

I'm taking the MCSA Windows 10 697 on Saturday afternoon. I'm have been cramming over the last few days. Is there anything I need to keep an eye out for or spend a little extra time on?

    Thanks but I don't quite follow. Would you mind elaborating just a little bit?

    Thanks guy. I took a few practice tests and averaged 95% overall. I also made a index card full of notes for powershell. I think I'm ready as I'm ever going to be.

    I got a 680. Dammit! It was way more technical that the study guides let on. I guess my current plan is to work more on transcender, labs, and the technet articles and take again in 2-3 weeks. Good plan or suggestions?

    Dame, so close! You did better than my first attempt. I suggest going through CBTnuggets 70-697, sign up to their free trial and go through all the videos.

    I haven't taken the Win 10 exams yet.

    Try this post AMD4Ever jhas some notes aobut 5 threads down:

    Measure practice tests might be worth a shot, since they're the official practice test product Microsoft recommends for their exams.

    Also, what I do when studying for an exam is browser said cert sub form on TE and look for I passed such and such exam to see what others did. This is just a thought.

    For example, I would look through the Win 10 sub form on TE and see what others did to pass the 70-697

    Passed today with 721. Was studying for the last couple of months and I thought I'm ready but tbh I found the exam quite difficult. I've managed to finish the last question in my last 10 minutesand wasn't expcting to pass.

    The objectives that pulled my score down were Managed Identity, Configure Networking and Plan and Implement Intune.

    I used Measureup, CBTnuggets (found them not going into depth) and the book you find on Amazon.

    Good luck to everyone

    Interesting enough, I got an email from MS saying I "got a badge." So, I log into the portal and now somehow I passed. I'm not sure if they threw some questions out, which allowed me to pass or what. Now my plan is to take the rest of the year off and then start studying for the 698 beginning in January with the end goal of passing it before the end of March.

    Congrats on passing!

    Thanks! It was a back door pass, but it is a pass, right?

    Thanks everyone for the help I got on this board. TJ I too originally scored a 583 on the 70-697 and received an email on Dec 1st saying that I had earned the MCP Badge for 70-697 and the MCSA Windows 10 Badge for previously passing 698. However 2 days ago I go another email saying my Badges for 697 and MCSA were revoked due to an error on their part. icon_sad.gif
    I was highly disappointed seeing how I already celebrated getting my MCSA.
