    Yeah, I’ve been studying on and off for this exam since October. Most of December was a written off as I was working almost every night.

    Just a few notes on the exam....

    Obviously the format of the exam is different as it is an upgrade exam. You are presented with three components which total 48 questions all in. You cannot go back after you have completed a component and your overall score is the lowest component score. The AD component was only nine questions and I got 1000 for it. yay!

    Some of the question don’t even cover Server 2008 so having a strong networking background will help and also if you passed your MCSE the right way and truely understood the material then this again will help for the 2008 upgrade exam.

    Materials used:
    MCITP Self-Paced Training Kit (Exams 70-640, 70-642, 70-643, 70-647): Windows Server® 2008 Enterprise Administrator Core Requirements: Windows Server ... Core Requirements

    MeasureUP 70-649 test questions

    Lab:
    Fully migrated my Server 2003 lab to Server 2008 which consisted of DC, Front End Exchange Server 2003, Back End Exchange Server to DC and Exchange Server 2007.

    On the DC I installed Virtual Server 2005 and syspreped a Server 2008 image so I could install a new server in a matter of minutes to test some of the new roles in Server 2008. The Exchange Server was running on Server 2008 Enterprise 64bit so I added Hyper-V and had a Virtual XP and Vista image so between the two physical servers I could have enough Server 2008 servers and clients running in a virtual environment for testing.

    Now onto 70-647.....
