For those interested in taking the Microsoft Certification exam 70-681 TS: Windows 7 and Office 2010, Deploying, there’s a free video available from Microsoft to help candidates prep for that test. Presented by ace Microsoft Certified Trainer Daniel Nerenberg, and recorded on May 24, 2011, this 55 minute LiveMeeting recording is available to anyone who registers through the access portal. The video is also available in either Live Meeting High-Fidelity Presentation or Microsoft Office Live Meeting Reply formats (the former didn’t want to run on my production PC, but the latter played fine through Windows Media Player on my Windows 7 Professional production PC, even though I do have the Live Meeting ActiveX controls installed in IE9–go figure!).
It’s mostly a voiceover a PowerPoint slide deck for Mr. Nerenberg’s exam tune-up. He starts with an overview of the exam objectives and a set of pointers to key topics to help candidates guide their exam preparation process. He also provides a useful action plan to help individuals plan out the steps involved in preparing for this particular exam. You won’t get a lot of deep or detailed technical information in this presentation but you will get a useful review of key topics, concepts, tools, and technologies. Those who are preparing for this exam will find the one hour they must commit to the video well worth the time and effort involved. Check it out!
