Passed 70-686

Well, today I took and passed the 70-686 exam with a score of 780. The test overall was not that bad, but I did feel that I had scored a lot higher. There were a number of very tricky questions - and I have never seen so many disable/enable type questions.

The exam seemed to cover most of the domains pretty evenly with a total of 55 questions. To me this was basically a deployment exam with a few other questions tossed in for a break.

I really thought that this site and the 70-686 MS Press book were better for prep for this test than the Gibson book. The Gibson book did not really go into enough detail on some of the areas (like MDT and MED-V).

I used MeasureUp and the MS Press CD for this exam and I thought those practice questions were very close to what was asked in the exam.

Well now that I am an MCITP:EDA7 I guess I need to try and find something else to study. I'll probably start on my CCNA after a few week summer break.

    I've already completed my MCITP:EA, so I have the Server 2008 stuff covered (in excruciating detail).

    I'm thinking of either hitting CCNA or possibly the MCITP virtualization cert.

    No matter, I'm just glad this pain in the butt test is over. It has some VERY quirky questions.
