Passed the 70-698 & need to prep for the 70-697

For the first exam I used the video series and passed on my first attempt. I plan to use Pluralsight for the second exam but from what I have gathered the 697 is a little more challenging.

What do you all recommend that I focus on and what are some suggested study materials?

Thank you

    Hey there,

    I've also recently passed my 70-698 and plan to go on to the 70-697, I'm using CBT Nuggets myself along with the official configuring windows devices exam ref 70-697 guide book, I've got a copy of this as a PDF and also the physical book.

    The book will tell you in steps how to configure something, best experience with this is hands on without doubt as you tend to understand it more.
    Then again everyone works differently.

    With this exam I'm starting with practice tests to see where my knowledge is at as I've already gone through all of the nugget videos a couple of months ago and would like to find the area's to work and improve upon.

    From your profile you have a very impressive selection of certifications right there, I aim hopefully build to gain the same sort of certifications as yourself as Security is what I'd also like to go in to.

    Many successes with your studies! icon_thumright.gif

    Hi there,

    I passed the 70-697 last month, using PluralSight. I believe their material thorough enough to prepare you for the exam. I also suggest that you practice some questions.

    I got many questions related to Intune (its policies, groups, types of accounts and alerts), as well as other cloud solutions covered by this exam. I also got many more questions than I'd expected on VPN protocols (tunnelling and authentication).

    Any advice for the 698?

    Thanks! And good luck!

    Hello Guys. How long does it take to receive and email from Microsoft after passing an exam? I passed 698 on the 18th June but I haven't received my results and there is no history on Perason VUE site.

    Why did you do 70-698 first?
    How much was CB Nuggets and Pluralsight?

    Those who are following-up with 70-697 ...
    Are you still on track?
    Have you taken the exam?

    698 material is a subset of the 697. Most people agree it is the easier of the two, and take 698 first.

    Congratulations on passing 70-698 exam!icon_thumright.gif

    For the preparation of 70-697 certification, I would recommend you to go for courses and performance based labs offered by uCertify. I have checked their customer reviews and also gone through the course. It covers all the exam objectives and provides interactive items between the course that keeps the learners engaged.
