    Passed the 70-640

    Hello all
    I don't post much but thought I would share this to see what is replied.

    I passed my AD 2008 exam yesterday. Chuffed is not the word.

    Yeah loads, I have only done XP, Supporting XP and this AD08 one, but, have to start somewhere.
    I am currently doing a Computer Network Managemnet degree at uni and the modules are the MCITP ciric, so I have yet to learn implementing AD and network infrastructure. Along with the four CCNA parts.
    Love it.

    Am I right in thinking the 70-640 has been updated to include Windows 2008 R2?

    Yes, although none of the training materials have been updated yet to reflect R2 so plenty of labbing required!

    Crap Are there major differences in terms of what might be asked on the exam? I've got the Enterprise Administrator book set (which includes 70-640) and don't want to continue swatting up if things are too different. Does anybody know of a book / site that provides just the new pieces of information? Cheers

    This is from the horses mouth. Release dates are kind of late for a lot of people who are already studying though.

    Why the hell have the made the 70-640 the last book to be published?!!!! Surely that should be out there first! Thanks @dblight for the info. Is there a big difference then?

    My advice would be to lab EVERYTHING in R2, some changes to diaglog boxes when asked questions etc etc, some exam questions reference to R2 Schema changes like AD restore etc etc.

    have a look on here
    70-640 Resources - TechExams.net IT Certification Forums

    ^^ has some links to books that you can get with R2 Content, personally i bought, http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Wind...=vglnk-c774-20

    have a look down towards the bottom of the thread and the R2 content additions are added

    hope this helps

    Awesome well done I am sitting 70-640 with Firebrand this afternoon.

    Their courseware has been updated for R2 so that's good.

    I am bricking it atm.
