    This is really helpfull, thanks! Will take the exam next friday, I already passed the 687 beta at TechEd, so passing this one as well will get me the MCSA: Windows 8. (Rather than taking the 689 upgrade exam) When will you be taking the exam?

    Thanks a lot for this perfect revision plan! i’m taking the exam tomorrow night and your post will be greatly used. I will translate it to french and double post it to my blog if that’s ok with you (citing sources of course)…
    it will be usefull even after the beta period, and my students will surely use it (and have a look at the source hopefully!)
    thanks again, it’s nice not to have to do it myself!
    best regards from France, Pierre.

    Thanks for the great info. It really helps revision to be able to quickly link to articles about areas I am unsure about.

    Thanks for this. I just passed 70-687, and even though it’s nearly a year after you wrote this, there are no books out yet for 70-688. The MS Press book is due in Sept

      Congratulations on passing. I’m glad it was of help to you. The time it takes for books to be released is too long indeed. Windows 8.1 will be releases pretty soon, so that book will be outdated almost as soon as it’s out.
