Since I finished up my exam 70-642 right at the end of 2009, for one of my resolutions going into 2010 would be to finish up my MCITP this year. In that regards, I am giving myself 45 days to prepare and pass the 83-640 exam. I am going from today (Jan 3rd 2010), so I am going to set my exam for Feb 17th which will work well for my schedule as luck would have it.
This exam replaces the 70-640 exam in the US because a part of the exam uses the performance based testing that I did the pilot for.
I am going to use the following resources to study:
- Train Signal’s Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Training
- Transcender Practice Exam
- Microsoft Self Paced Study Guide
I will start by going through Train Signal’s video courses first, then using the self paced study guide and virtual machines to get more of a hands on feel to deal with more of the performance based testing.
I feel this schedule will be tough, but I just got done designing and implementing a Server 2008 Active Directory network for a small business not to mention I have been working on Active Directory since 2000. I am going to document regularly here as I go through the study material.
