    Hi Guys,

    Been studying like mad for the 70-680. Making extensive notes using the official book, planning on finishing that by Friday.

    I have the whole weekend free, so my question is:

    Is it possible to cram in the WHOLE of the Messer Lab's, Questions etc, all in a Weekend?

    If so, that leaves me with over a week to get through IT Free Training for Windows 7, as well as allowing me to read extensive notes and do practice tests for 4 days+.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    Anything's possible mate, it entirely depends on you, your ability to absorb info but more importantly retain it. Good luck, I'll have a few beers on your behalf :beerfunnel:

    Cool, thanks Jim.
    I am struggling to retain information I will be honest. Been trying to get through this and its just driving me nuts.
    Once I have the MCTS Book out the way, I will give it a go.
    Jane is at work both Saturday and Sunday, so 7am start for me and hopefully have 90% of it done by the time she comes home on Saturday.
    Enjoy the beers, I have a whole weekend of Pizza, Destiny House of Wolves and Beers if I get this exam passed. Now there is an incentive :hurrah:

    So one thing I would stress here is stop over cramming, take some time off and forget the subject matter, especially if the exam is close, you either know it by this stage or you don't.

    The last thing you want to do is frag your brain and forget even basic stuff that you know you remember, it can happen to the best of us (as an example of this, I pay for my weekly fuel on an Amex card, I have been doing that for the last 3 years, same Amex card, same PIN number, this week I went to fill up the car and for the life of me simply couldn't remember the pin, even my muscle memory was failing me, after the 2nd attempt I had to use a different card, go to work, log on to the Amex site and remind myself what that number was).

    The reason for the brain fail? Stress and Anxiety.
