    Question 70-698 and 697

    So I'm doing them in the order of 698 first and then 697, as it seems there is some crossover in the exams, and 698 is the easier, so a nice primer for me to get my going, hehe.

    I was wondering if there are any good free resources online? I've got the Exam Reference book from Microsoft which I am going through chapter by chapter, then cross-referencing that with my CBT Nuggets account to add notes to the book to make sure it's detailed.

    Are there any good online resources I'm missing out on for this exam?

    Passed both during the year. I have the Exam Reference books from Microsoft but I really didn't use it. It was CBT Nuggets along with making notes and both William Panek books which helped me to pass.

    I'm sticking to the Exam Ref book and CBT Nuggets. Just wondered if there were any other (free) resources I was missing online.

    Well, I'm getting ready for 70-698 first as it seems the easier of the two, figured I'd get it out of the way. End of the month is the exam. So far I've gone through CBT Nuggets, the official Exam Reference Guide, now working on ITPro.tv's video library and they have some excellent labs. I'll be taking the practice exams the final week all week I think and go from there. We'll see how it goes.

    Default ICND2 and MCSA at the same time

    Will start studying for the 70-697 and then go for the 70-698 using cbt nuggets starting today.
    I'm currently studying for the ICND2 but hopefully the MSCA:win10 won't have heavy material and I'll be able to study for both.

    Good luck. I may plan to start working towards my Windows 10 certs after my MCSE as I've recently found out my company may be upgrading over the next couple of years. Let us know how it goes.

    Good Luck! My advice would be to know the powershell equivalent of anything you can do in a GUI (disk management, ADK tools,backup and restore,remote management, etc). As Anthony Sequeira would say, It was LITERALLY every other question.

    So I tried a couple of Transcender exams for the 70-698 exam I've got coming on Friday. Does anyone else feel that Transcender have completely missed the mark in terms of how the actual exam is? I had questions with about 15 options on them, no case studies and several questions asking me to fill in a box with the answer for a powershell script or other such item rather than the Microsoft multiple-choice questions. Kind of weird. I'm not impressed with the quality of Transcender.

    Yeah, found that myself. The Transcender tests are really tricky, and seem to cover stuff not covered in the study material.

    Got my 698 tomorrow. I've ready Will Panek's guide twice, watched the cbt nuggets twice, answered all the study guides questions with an average of about 95% correct, done the transcender tests repeatedly. I hope I'm ready.

    TimoBlack, we're test buddies! Mine is at 4pm tomorrow! hehe.

    I've gone through CBT Nuggets, ITPro.tv and the Microsoft Exam Reference Guide (probably the best out of all study materials I've had for this exam). Let's kill it!

    Passed with an 820 over 700!

    Officially an MCP!

    Onwards to MCSA certification with the 697 now! I hope to sit that in about a month.

    Good work Timo. I just finished mine, got 828 so looks like we're about the same level, hehe.

    Good job mate. 697 here we come! I'll be sitting it in about a month too, if you fancy sharing tips and stuff, hit me up on the forums, maybe drop me a PM, we can exchange skype or e-mails or something.

    Well done guys!

    Just a pre warning 697 is nothing like 698. 697 has very little Windows 10, its mostly about Office 365, Azure and Intune. So study hard on those areas. Keep your powershell AND command line skills up.

    Good Luck!

    And passed with a 854! So glad that's done! MCSA: Windows 10 complete. I'm thinking I'll add the 70-695 to get a MCSE: Mobility there.

    Probably the toughest I've taken so far. A lot of stuff on InTune management and CLI. Only had one set where the questions change and the list of answers stays the same, was about 5-6 questions long. Also a lot of "put these in order".

    Overall, I'm glad I did 70-698 first. It helped a lot in the exam.

    Edit: Oh, and the exam is now totally in line with Windows 10. It's even renamed to "Configuring Windows 10 Devices"!
