Just trying to finish up my MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7 before I start job hunting again. I'd like to get another desktop support job for now so hopefully this will mean something to employers.

It looks like a lot of the content is very similar to the 70-680 so I'm not too worried. We'll see how it goes in reality though.

    good luck. Please fill us in with your thoughts about the test afterwards. What did you use to study? Books? Labs? Thanks!

    I didn't think it was too bad. The main things that messed me up were the "choose the best answer" type of questions. There were questions in which all the answers were definite solutions and I wasn't clear on the criteria in which to base the "best" on.

    As for studying I just quickly went over some troubleshooting features of Win 7 that I hadn't ever used in my workplace. If you know everything on 70-680 this one follows very closely.

    I've dealt with most of this stuff for work since a few months before Win 7 was publicly released so I didn't really need any "lab" time.

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

    So I'm assuming since I've completed 72-680 and 70-685 the MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7 gets awarded automatically?

    I'm still waiting for 70-685 to get posted to my transcript. I know they say it can take up to a week but how long do these normally take to get posted?
