    Hi All,

    Got my 070-272 exam tomorrow afternoon and I'm quietly confident (fingers crossed!).

    Passed my 070-271 exam on Nov 21st and 272 seems a bit easier. Hopefully I'll pass to get MCDST cert!

    I then plan on doing the 621 upgrade exam next year for Vista to get my MCITP/MCTS as I think I've got the exam bug!

    Anyone done the 621 that can offer any advise on which books to use to study?

    Good luck on the exam.

    I think a few people on here have done the vista upgrade.

    If I remember correctly Wagnerk has done it.

    I sat the 71-621 exam while it was in beta (hence the 71 instead of the 70), then I sat the 70-620 live exam as at the time MS stated that the 621 exam would not count as a client exam, which was changed after I sat the 620 exam. Anyway the materials that I used was:

    1. Microsoft Windows Vista Unveiled
    2. Introducing Windows Vista (Introducing) and
    3. Windows Vista for Dummies: Special Preview Edition
    4. CBT Nuggets "Windows Vista - First Look"
    5. The free e-learning clinics from MS - Clinic 3041: Deploying Windows Vista™ and the 2007 Office System Client Products (Beta)
    6. The various Technet documentation on the beta version of Vista
    7. Using Vista since beta 3

    However now there are lots of proper study guides, CBT's and practice exams that weren't around when I was studying for them. Last time I checked there weren't any books for the 70-621 exam, so you'll have to get the books for both the 70-620 & the 70-622 exam (unless, of course, they are now producing books for the upgrade exam).

    Hope this helps

    -Ken

    p.s. good luck for your exam :)

    Well done on the pass. How did you find it compared to the 271? I'm still studying for this one (272) so would be interested to know.

    Tbone, to be honest, I found 272 easier but that's maybe because I deal more with problems in Apps in my job!

    Had to do a bit of refreshing on outlook express tho as I haven't used it in years! I'd say 271 is the tricker of the two in my opinion!

    Good luck!

    Congrats

    Why aren't the places i sit exams open on Saturdays :rolleyes:

    I am working through 271, i don't know what to expect, do the questions in the MS press booksand/or CD reflect the exam ? (I have a feeling they dont)

    If i can i am going to avoid the Vista stuff, continue with MCSA, wait for windows 7.
