Hello, everyone. I am scheduled to the 70-680 this Thursday and I am a bit nervous. Mostly because I have only taken CompTIA exams and not any Microsoft ones. For studying, I have went through and read the Poulton Win 7 and MS Press books. I completed the labs contained throughout the two books. I also went through that LearnSmart Exam Manual and the 70-680 notes that someone was kind enough to post on the message boards. Finally I have watched the Professor Messer videos for the Win 7 exam.

Does anyone have any pointers for the exam?

    The Poulton book would give you a good grounding.

    Don't worry, go for it and do your best :)

    Just try to relate questions to real-life situations as you would do in work.

    Update: I passed with a 850. It took me about 1 hr and 10 min to complete. Overall some of the questions did have me scratching my head at some points. I missed a few questions on Deploying Windows 7, Configuring Hardware and Applications, Configuring Network Connectivity and Configuring Access to Resources. The last one is where I did the worst...

    Overall I am very pleased with the result. This is my first Microsoft exam and it was not as hard as I thought it would be. On a related note, I was thinking of diving into the 70-685 . Does anyone have any suggestions for which book as to get started?
