70-647

Well I used my second shot to take the 647 today and I passed with a 910! I'm not a MCITP:EA quite yet though I still need to do the 680 first but I'm almost there.

    What all did you use to study and what's your experience level.

    Just a bit of advice...

    As others on this board have said, 680 is a lot harder than it looks. Much more difficult than any prior workstation exam.

    Take it seriously or take 620.

    I don't know about that one, did you ever take the 70-270?

    Congratulations, yes it's not an easy exam but since you passed all others i'm sure you will not find it that hard. Good Luck

    Yep, also 073, 210, 620 and 680.

    Win 7 by far the hardest of all these... in my opinion.

    I agree, I took 70-210 and 70-680 and I can say 70-680 is really a hard exam.

    I've heard it's pretty close match between the 270 and the 680 as to which is harder. I took the 620 and failed it the first time (first MS exam - lack of preparation) but raised my score by 200 points 1-1/2 weeks later.
    I've been studying Windows 7 off and on for a while now and I can tell just by the differences in the objectives from the Vista that the exam will be a LOT harder. I'm planning to take the 680 after I finish the MCITP:EA just to prove to myself I can do it.
    The OP shouldn't have too difficult of a time with the 680 after having studied the server technology behind 2k8 as that is the main part of the 680 that seems to get a lot of the people taking the exam. The 680 is geared towards an enterprise environment.

    I'm not sure how well the measureup test for this exam compare to the actual exam but I took a practice test a couple of days ago before I even started studying for this exam and I got a 70%.The questions were way easier on measureup than the measureup questions for any of the server tests.

    I've heard the measure ups that came with the book are a pretty good gage as to how well you know the material. I've also heard the test is still harder than the measure ups though.
    If you're using the MS Press book for the 680 then be sure to be careful in the deployment chapters as those chapters are poorly written and riddled with mistakes. I put 2 links in the sticky resources thread that have a lot of the text corrections in them.

    You are correct the measureup's that I have used in the past have been a good indication of how well you know the material but like you said the test is harder.Yeah I have the mspress book for the 680 and I recently purchased the testout videos too.
