    Hey guys,

    I've booked my 682 for the morning, another border crossing :( in traffic nightmare.

    Anyone who has done the 682 can you quickly offer me any subjects and advice and general brush up tips. Also, how it compared to just the 680.

    (Second exam in a week) haha.

    Am I write in thinking the 70-682 is just the 685? Like, Exactly the same?

    I don't think so. For instance you could you could get questions on the 682 about deployment of images and vhd's that you wouldn't get on 685. Basically I would think you would want to be pretty comfortable with the material for both the 680 and 685.

    Well I've got the second shot, and it was only £44 so I will dive in, test the water, see how comfortable I am and then go from there. I did the same with the 680, took it on the Monday, failed, and then jumped right back in on the Thursday and passed.

    One of my main questions is whether the 682 is questions from both exams, or completely rewritten questions that won't appear in the 685 or 680. It would help if the exact questions from 680 turn up as I am pretty comfortable with them.

    If the 70-682 exam is like other MCTS upgrade exams that I've taken, then the exam is split into (in this case) 2 parts with exam questions from both the 70-680 and the 70-685.

    THIS!

    Just failed it, with a score of 532, it's not a biggy though, now I know what to expect. I actually got lower in the 680 part of the exam (Which I passed just last week) :blink

    Exam was 50 Questions Long, split into 2 x 25 sections (one 685 and one 680 as you expect).

    I didn't study for the 685 at all, and hadn't studied for the 680 either. But now I know what to expect, I shall take my second shot and pass. Sorted :)

    To bad mate, but at least you now have first hand experience of the exam and you've got a free second shot :)

    You'll nail it next time :)

    Exactly. I wasn't expecting to pass. I have them 50% off vouchers, so I could do this exam 4 times and it will have only cost the price of 1 actual exam. I'll nail it the next time now I know what the crack is :D

    commiserations. I'm sure you'll blitz it next time. Interested to hear about your experiences of the exam though. Planning to sit it in June and am currently hammering the 680 and 685 MS Press books... (the 680 incidentally is full of quite significant typos and errors)...

    There's the usual minor misspellings and things but the thing that drove me nuts was errors in system commands in the practice sections - caused me no end of teeth gnashing. Here's a couple of errata:

    Accidentally you say? that's it now JK, this relationship is OVER!

    Do you want another couple of vouchers so you can get your 680 and 682 knocked out for the hell of it?
