Starting 70-680...

    Hello people,

    I've got a question regarding 70-680;

    I am a bit confused in terms of the lab work and what I'd need.

    As this is configuring Windows 7 would I get away with just using another desktop/laptop PC to run through various exercises from the Don Poulton book?
    Or would I need a proper virtual server-client type set up?

    (In terms of experience I have around 2 years in a support position and use win 7/server 2008 at work)

    Your feedback will be much appreciated :)

    ideally a client/server domain setup would definitely be more beneficial.

    But if you are able to learn from videos as well as books then at least you would be able to 'see' the differences between a stand-alone client setup and a domain-connected one.

    There's a very good free video 680 course available from Professor Messer...

    Good luck with the study!

    Hi RichyV thanks for the advice :)

    I've used prof messer during A+/N+ and worked a treat so will be using them again this time round.

    I was slightly confused just flicking through Don Poultons book regarding the labs, It doesn't seem to specify what I need, how many virtual clients etc.

    Perhaps someone who has used this book to study can fill me in on the exact set up I need unless its just a virtual client/server domain set up then that's pretty self explanatory i guess.

    Thank you :)

    Professor Messer and There are youtube videos as well. Make notes.
    Practice a lot in your virtual box. Play around as much you can.
    Now you know how things are done. bit by bit.

    Do some samples exams.

    Good luck
