I'd say this is a worthwhile exam for anyone who already has their MCSA Win 10 or just the 70-698. For those who have already taken and passed the 70-697 this exam should be a cakewalk.
To study I used technet (Microsoft have a document with all the exam objectives and links to the relevant techet articles) and the first 2/4 of the CBT nuggets courses as well as some labing.

    About 2 weeks but I use the majority of technology covered in the exam at work and some material was a re-read of the 697 exam.
    For someone going onto the content for the first time I'd say 6-8 weeks would be reasonable.

    Congrats on the pass, I will be doing this in the future.

    Was the material for this cert easy to find on technet for the exam objectives?

    Microsoft made a document matching up the blueprint with technet articles for the MD-100 and MD-101.
    It can be found here: aka.ms/MSStudyGuide

    What's a modern desktop admin? "Hey Cortana, restart my PC"?

    In case you're not joking it is the replacement certification for the MCSA Windows 10 since that is not retired.

    The exam replay voucher cost me $320 AUD. Prices for exam vouchers vary by region. I have a cbt nuggets subscription through my job as well.

    Congrats. What sort of lab setup did you have? A lot of exam objectives cover Intune and Azure. I see no way of getting experience with Intune since you need a company account. I do have an Azure account. I'd really like to get experience with Intune and Azure before doing the exam.

    VMs on my home pc to do deployment scenarios and I am lucky enough to have access to Azure and Intune in a prod environment at work.
    Microsoft does offer a 30 day free sub to Intune and Azure for a new account.
