    As long as you dont disclose exam content then you dont break the non disclosure agreement you signed when taking the exam.

    People generally put what books or courses they studied, VM's they created and gave a general nod towards the listed exam requirements.

    As said above but don't forget mate, you can comment even if you haven't passed the exam, just try to make sure what you are saying is correct. Thats my take on it for what its worth

    Great

    used cbt nugget series for this one there amazing as per usual.

    great link I know its another forum but some pretty good reading in there

    http://www.techexams.net/forums/mcts-mcitp-windows-2008-general/42947-70-642-resources.html

    some random thoughts worth remembering

    Removed. I dont mind if anyone wants to PM me for any pointers

    and basically understand the basic RODC command line stuff, heavy DNS and NAP.

    Interestingly subnetting and IPv6 are not featured as heavily as I thought maybe a few questions total.

    Good luck guys

    Mods fire away and remove anything overboard.

    ...and this is where you run close to violating the NDA, because you're basically telling people, "You need to study what is in this list because this is what I saw". If people want to know what is "worth remembering", they need to look at Microsoft's objectives.

    Don't mean to come down on you, mate... just trying to keep you safe because I don't want Microsoft coming down on you. Better me than them... because I can't decertify ya! :)

    That's all well and good... but despite your good intentions, you signed an agreement to not disclose the very stuff you're disclosing. And ultimately, it doesn't matter what you or I think... it matters what Microsoft thinks.

    You can do what you want to do - after all, it's your certifications on the line, not mine. But if I were you, I'd edit that stuff out of the post. Better safe than sorry... a lifetime ban on certifications is a hard pill to swallow.

    The difference is that CBT Nuggets isn't saying, "I just came out of the exam, and here are some things I think you ought to study". CBT Nuggets is simply covering the concepts Microsoft says COULD be on the exam.

    I hope and pray that you took the advice in the spirit it was given... not as coming down on you, but in keeping your hard-earned certifications safe. :)

    Good on ya for trying to help, though... I absolutely know your heart was in the right place. Repped.
