    Hi guys,

    Passed 70-643 today with a score of 760. I found this exam tougher than 70-642 in that I don't work with a few elements of the subject matter, such as: Windows Media Services, WDS, and SharePoint Foundation! As a result, I found it difficult to take in the finer details of the previously mentioned subjects! 70-642 and 640 seemed a lot easier in comparison, but probably because I work with about 90% of that subject matter day in, day out LOL!

    Still, a pass is a pass so I'm well chuffed! Study materials: Official R2 MS Training Kit (probably the best one I've read) & CBT Nuggets (thanks to my boss for coughing up for those).

    Next on the list is 70-646 (for MCITP:SA) and then 70-680 & 647 for MCITP:EA. I opted to do 70-643 first because we're rolling out RDS here, so I was quite keen to learn more about RDS, which the exam covered quite a bit!

    But first of all, it's off to Ibiza for me starting tomorrow...the study can go on hold for a week!

    :twisted:

    Cheers matey!!!

    Yes, actually quite good with regards to detail and real world scenarios, but there are a few gaps with regards to R2 (even though the R2 Updates are included). However, the MS Press R2 edition does cover what CBT Nuggets misses and some more, so I highly recommend that book!
