70-680 Poulton Book
Portable Command guide - Gibson
MCTS - Rapid Review 70-680(Not really needed imo but good review book nonetheless)
Itfreetraining and Professor Messer Videos

Got an 840/1000, being hyped up as a very hard exam and imo it's really not. I would recommend labing the deployment, but taking good notes(Literally notating almost all of Poulton book) is enough. I'm 20 years old and next semester I get my AAS in Network Administration from my local community college. So you dont really need that 2 years of experience requirement to pass this exam.

Have my A+, MTA - Os fundamentals, and MCTS now. I was wondering if I should do the N+ next or go straight to the 70-685? I plan to have both done before I graduate in May..

    Congrats! You and I seem to be on a very similar path, both with school and certs. Having studied both the 70-680 & the 70-685 I would suggest doing the 685 THEN the N+. There is a massive amount of overlap between the 680 and the 685 and it would benefit you to study the 685 while the material is still fresh. Again, congrats on the pass, I hope to say the same thing by the end of January.

    congrats! well done. i agree with others that you should go with 70-685 first. i will do the same because of the amount of overlaps.

    So 70-685 it is..Any recommendations on any books?

    I have the 70-685&86 Gibson book..anything else out there? Hows the MS press for this one?

    CONGRATZ!!! Might I suggest you continue on the path you're following just because the information is still relatively fresh on your mind!!!

    Thanks for the resources u posted for use on the 70-680.I'd like to ask if you used the whole book for the portable command guide by darril gibson.Seeing that it covers the 685 and 686 as well,I'm wondering if I need to go through the whole book for the 680 exam.I'd appreciate your reply.Thanks

    Id recommend at least knowing what every command does but, no need to focus on every single switch. Focus on the switches found in the Poulton book, Messer Videos, and Itfreetraining.
