Hi All,

Passed 70-685 today which, I have to say, I found to be a tough one. Going to start work on the 70-680 to attain the full Enterprise Desktop Support Technician certification although I think having done 70-685 first will make it far easier.

I used the Self-Paced Training Kit by Tony Northrup which I thought was brilliant preparation for the exam. You do need to have a lot of hands-on experience as well though. Just reading the book simply isn't enough icon_wink.gif

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your pass! Good luck on the 680. It helps to have a book for the 686 to supplement for the 680 exam. I used Darril's book.

    I didn't realize you could skip 680 and do the 685 first. Unless, you studied for both and just decided to take that exam first?

    Regardless, congrats mate!

    I also thought that to be the case and the MS website does list 70-680 as a pre-req for 70-685 which, I was quite concerned about when I found out the company I work for was putting me on the course. But, studied for it and passed without having done the 70-680 with no problems or any red tape etc...

    You can a lot of the MS exams in whatever order you want. I have seen several people do the MCSE in various orders. I went and did the MCDST after doing the MCSE, just for kicks. Most of the material builds on itself, so I wouldn't do the 647 exam for the MCITP exam first.
