I passed the 70-642 yesterday with a 975.
It took me longer than I expected to study and fully understand the material. I originally wanted to take it on 6/17 but I wanted to do more labs.

As far as study material I used the Microsoft Training Kit 70-642
Since I had success with trainsignal while studying the N+ I chose to use their material, but I didn't like how it was presented so I picked up Testout 642 study material which was far more thorough but dry.

I Labbed using a few DC7600's plus my main pc
It took me a total of 6 weeks instead of 4 (my goal)
4-6 hours a day sometimes longer.

as far as testing I used Kaplan selftest.

Next is 70-640

    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    Awesome score, hopefully I can reflect the same success in about two months when I plan to take the 642.

    Congratulations, I found the 640 harder to study but the exam itself was easier. I recommend getting the Sybex book in addition to MS.

    Any reason for taking the 642 before 640?

    A friend took the 642 before the 640 and he said that the 642 helped him with the 640, so I took his advice... I'll find out soon enough and report.

    I agree, this is the correct order since DNS is more detailed in 642.I did this order and i found it convenient.
