    Close, but not good enough.

    Resit booked for next week, with a Second Shot this time just in case.

    Can anyone recommend any additional study material besides CBT Nuggets and the MS Press Book?

    I didn't pass 685 until my 3rd sitting and the different resources I used for the 3rd attempt were to go over all the tech in my notes and look them up on Technet and also to lab a heck load more stuff

    Took the exam again today, passed with 900/1000. Very happy, glad that one's out of the way.

    Now on to the CCENT I think.

    Thanks for the advice Stuzzle.

    Congrats!

    Just for the sake of others, how did you approach the extra study for the resit?

    Thanks Richy,

    I spent some more time on Technet looking at VPN technologies, DirectAccess and BranchCache, used the "Windows 7 Portable Command Guide MCTS 70-680, 70-685 & 70-686" book to brush up on general network investigation commands (arp, netsh etc.) and then read through the Appendices in the back of the MSPress 70-685 book a few more times, which I felt covered a lot of topics.

    I felt that although this exam was a little easier than the 70-680, it still covers a lot of ground and obviously I got caught out the first time, so I'd recommend thorough preparation for this one.
