MCTS: Network Infrastructure Configuration

Friday, 11. July 2008

I took Microsoft Certification test 70-642 today.  This is one test of the MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist) series for Windows Server 2008.  It specifically covers “Network Infrastructure Configuration”, which includes topics such as DNS and DHCP, as well as some new things like NAP, or Network Access Protection.

Overall, the test shouldnt be too difficult for a candidate who has some real-world experience regarding many of these topics, and who puts the time in to get up to speed on some of the new things Microsoft has added with Server 2008.

As you could probably tell, I passed this test; I finished with a score of 966/1000.  Not bad for only taking 2 weeks to sutdy.  And in case you were wondering, I used the official Microsoft Press Self-Paced study book for this test.

I’m already looking over the material for 70-640, which is MCTS: Active Directory Configuration.  Estimated test date is August 1, 2008.
