    Well, just came back from the testing centre to say that I've passed the 70-680 - Window 7 client exam :)

    Feedback (without breaking the NDA)

    Exam: 120 minutes
    Extra Total Time (survey, pre exam and feedback, post exam): 30 minutes
    Questions: In the 60's
    Result: 875
    Time taken: Just a little over an hour

    Decided to go for this exam, instead of the upgrade exam as it was free :)

    Resources, here is what I used:

    1. See this thread for the 71-680
    2. Preplogic Mega Guide
    3. And the training course that the free voucher came with.

    Working with:

    I've been working with/using Windows 7 since the RC release

    The Exam:

    I found the exam to be fair. It was easier than the beta exam I took, that's for sure. There was a few questions that were given that were just re-worded (I thought a couple of times that they gave me the same questions - but that's the luck of the pool of questions) and a small percentage of questions were non-OS version specific.

    Not sure what to study for next :)

    Whereabouts is that Ken? I know Tresham is a test centre, but I thought they were Fridays only.
