Time needed to prep for 70-698?

I am not new to Windows 10. I support it daily. Would 2 months be enough time to study for and take the 70-698 exam?

    I agree, 6-8 weeks should be more than enough for the 70-698.

    Thanks guys for the reply. I have Pluralsight and CBT nuggets, so covered on videos. Whats a good book? The official Microsoft on does not have the best reviews on Amazon.

    I've been using the MCSA 70-697 and 70-698 Cert Guide by Don Poulton from Pearson IT. It's been a phenomenal and comprehensive book with practice exams and memory tables. While I can't guarantee how it covers the official Microsoft exams (since I haven't taken it yet), many reviewers online give it high grades and say it was all they needed for the 70-697 and 70-698 exams.

    My advice is do the CBT nuggets vids and pluralsight. I find pluralsight sooo boring but I grinded my teeth and got some knowledge from it that was up to date.. Udemy has some practice  tests that are actually pretty good. Time needed for the 70-698 is like 3 weeks even I did mine in about that. Cbt nuggets was my main source now the 70-697 is a different beast.

    @danielcreed Thanks for the advice. Did you read any books?

    I'm not really a book guy but I do have the green books. I find videos are the best way for me to learn. I just seem to soak the info better on them and they cover the same material. The practice questions got me through. Studying the examples and answers.

    Unfortunately, none of the books are that great. Buy something like MCSA Windows 10 Study Guide: Exam 70-698 by Panek, or Exam Ref 70-698 Installing and Configuring Windows 10 by Bettany, and use the objectives from Microsoft to guide your studies. 

    While you may still be able to use the 697 and 698 books to study (you'll actually have to, as there is very little study material for the new exams---typical of Microsoft), be aware of this:
