    Hi,
    is anyone preparing/has passed the MCTS Windows 7? I'd like to get some info on difficulty, training books/materials, etc. if possible.
    Cheers.

    70-680? Yes, I have passed it. It's not too bad. Book wise, you can't go too wrong with the MS Press book. Also the MeasureUp \ Selftest \ Boson tests were \ are quite good.

    I've got my exam for it in a few days time and have been studying it for the last couple weeks.

    I have used the Sean Odom book which I found one of the most useless books ever and last week forked out for the official MS press book which is a lot better.

    Download WAIK for Win7 if you haven't already.

    ^^Great post, loads of good info, videos and free online testlets.

    I haven't taken the exam so can't comment on difficulty but I have found from studying that around half the material is stuff that you'll already know if you've worked in an MS environment and have used Win7 for a while. The other half is more focused on deployment - images, answer files etc which requires a lot more tuning.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    Was that the book that has only 1/4 the pages that MS book has, for example talking about XP mode in Sean Odoms book is a little paragraph compared to detailed 4 page explanation in MS book.

    classic.
