    Hi CF ppl.

    I've been providing I.T support as part of my role in my current job for the past 2 years and have now got a job as a technician which i start in about a months time. Have had an interest in I.T since my school days but only really decided i wanted it as a career about 2-3 years ago.

    Last year i got my CCNA just out of interest really, but are now looking to get the 70-685 as it will be directly relevant to my new job. Would like to move on to servers after this but will have to see where they want me to go with my development.

    Ive started on the 70-685 and are using the Wiley official academic course book, as well as cbt nuggets for my study.

    look forward top picking all your brains and sharing any help i can.

    Hi & welcome to CF!

    Have you taken 70-680 yet, or are you only interested in the specifics of 70-685?

    I only ask as I have come across the situation previously where students did not realise that the 685 alone does not give you any specific MS certificate, it is added to your Microsoft Transcipt though, but only mentions having passed that specific exam.

    Apologies for the question as soon as you've 'popped your head around the door' so to speak!

    I'm sure you'll enjoy being part of this informative forum community...

    Hi,

    its the specifics of the desktop support tech that i was after. At the moment its more benefitial to brush up on troubleshooting for me personally, however i will go back and do the 70-680 im sure.

    Hi,

    yep, no problem. You obviously know what you're doing...
    I just like to point it out as it can be a little bit of a disappointment when you've put all that work in to pass but you don't receive any sort of Certification.

    Good luck with the studies!

    Welcome!
    Good luck with the 685. Study hard and ask questions if you need to. Personally I found that one tough - perhaps cos I was set it on a deadline and had to rush it. Passed it first time, but it was one of my narrower passes (mid 700s IIRC)
