70-620 & MS-Press book

Hey everyone,

I grabbed a DreamSpark voucher a couple weeks ago and I am cramming for my Vista:Configuring exam that is this Friday (Yikes!). I was wondering how prepared everyone was just going through the MS-Press book and Technotes here? Did you feel that the questions in the MS-Press book prepared you enough? At first I was missing a lot of them but now I am getting most of them right but I feel its more like "Oh, I remember this answer." kind of thing.

I don't use Vista on my personal machine as I was holding out for Windows 7. Going to mess around with it in VirtualPC the next couple days to get a feel for some stuff though (Yay MSDN AA!). I guess the main question did the MS-Book training kit go over enough stuff to make you confident on the exam or should I be looking at some other stuff?

    I thought the MS Press book gave me all the info I needed for my exam. I also used the CBT nuggets videos as well.

    +1. If you go through the labs/practices in the book, that will give you a good base for the exam. Play around with Vista as much as you can - I hear that there are lots of sims in recent exams, so it's important to be able to perform as well as answer direct questions.

    Good luck!

    Just got back from taking the test...

    Passed with an 828! The book definitely helped prepare me for it. I do like the sims more than the questions, it makes more since when you are physically doing the tasks it asks for.

    Thanks to everyone on this board! I don't post much but I do read a lot of them.

    Next 70-290 >> 70-291 >> MCSA!
