    I've Passed!!

    Afternoon all,

    Bit excited as I've just passed my Microsoft 70-680 (Windows 7, Configuring) exam this morning :-)

    It's the first Microsoft exam I've actually properly dedicated the time to doing the revision for (I'd done a few CRM exams a few years ago when working in industry but found it rather dull), so I'm really really pleased to have passed it first time :-)

    Where to next though....my current aim is MCITP Server Administrator (and then onto Enterprise Administrator in the long term) (I know the 70-680 doesn't go towards this, but it seemed like the best exam for me to do to get me started)....I'm thinking 70-640 next

    Look very carefully at the MCITPs available, you will find that exam is included in a combination of exams to meet one.

    Oh, and congrats

    Congratulations!!

    I hope you don't do like I did and crack out 50 module exams and not have enough funds to do the final exams (such as 70-680).

    If I had the funds I would finish off all of my exams and probably be MCITP - SA, EA and such like

    Top work fella. It's an interesting exam that one, MCITP:SA is good fun and mostly relevant.

    Seriously well done, I tried some years ago at an MCP in XP, the course was text book based, couldnt crack it, learning something the size of a yellow pages and then go for an exam. All I remember is looking forward to the breaks cos the biscuits were great.

    Congrats I'm on the 70-643 at the moment and it's one of the more interesting ones definitely.

    nice one - congrats, I've had the books for over a year but not really bothered to study them - that might change now i'm at uni but who knows.

    Congratulations and hope you do well in any future exams you take also
