    Question 70-698 Study advice

    Hi,

    I am preparing for the 70-698 exam and wondered what is the best way to study/prepare

    I have the Exam Ref book and I have a 5 day course with QA starting in a few days

    I am nearly finished reading the book getting ready for the 5 day course so I have a bit of background knowledge going into it.

    Thinking would a lab pc help too or would the 5 day course be good enough? The 5 day course does have lab pc's etc.

    In my job, I do use a Win 10 laptop so I am getting experience everyday on using it and its features

    Any help would be appreciated

    With the exam ref book, the QA 5 day course and everyday experience with Windows 10. You be prepared for the exam, don't leave leave it too long between the course and talking the exam. The exam does go into Windows 10 features you would never come by as an standard user such as GPO.

    I'm currently studying for the 70-698 and found the CBT Nuggets video course by Anthony Sequeira to be very helpful. There is also a study guide included which helps you plan your time around the course. If you need any tips or study notes for this PM me.

    Have you done a Windows exam before? If this is your first, you'll definitely need to practice with VMs. Set yourself up with a dummy Windows 10 VM (I recommend virtualbox for this) or a physical machine if you have the hardware laying around. Use the videos as a guide and put into practice what you're learning. I find this to be the best method of study (not much of a book guy).

    When you feel ready, start using practice exams from MeasureUp to test your knowledge. The content in this is at a similar difficulty to the exam, if not higher. If you're passing these, you'll be ready for the exam.

    I'm planning to do my exam by the end of Feb then the 70-697 before the end of May. What are your plans? It might be fun to compare notes and test each other beforehand .
    2018 Goals: MCSA: Windows 10 (70-698, 70-697) MCSA: Windows Server 2016 (70-740, 70-741, 70-742), RHCSA

    Hi,

    Thanks for your replies

    This would be my first Microsoft exam so I can get some hardware together and create a test pc

    I have done a video course before (not with CBT nuggets) and didn't find it very useful as I couldn't concentrate with it properly (hence why choosing a classroom course this time round) but I've heard alot about CBT nuggets and their virtual labs. I will see if I can do a trial with them.

    When I have completed the course I will then start practice exams

    I'm hoping to do mine the end of Feb as well (don't want to wait too long after the course like Malachi1612 said) and 70-697 I will study for straight after I pass this.

    That would be really good to compare notes and see how others are studying/preparing for this too

    Good you picked the 70-698 first as its easier than 70-697, also being your first MS exam you can see how the exam questions are. They do throw in a load of junk in the questions to confuse you so you have to read in between the lines.

    I took 70-697 last year and it was my ever first MS exam and I failed. But thanks to me understand how MS ask their questions, CBT Nuggets (videos had been updated for 70-697) I passed 70-697 and then 70-698, which is known to be easier anyway as its more Windows 10 focused. I have an 8 core server at home which I use for virtualization so labbing, combined with Technet, a few books helped me through these.

    But Im sure you be fine if you a 5 days course lined up. Mine is completely self-study so I don't have that luxury.
