MCT Preparation for Course 20688

  • Greetings MCTs,

     As a fellow MCT, I know how rushed we usually are to get a class room set up for that Monday morning start. I want to impress on you that there are setup steps that must be taken outside of the VM imaging to teach the Windows Intune content of the course. This is all documented in the Instructors manual and the Train the Trainer video. Looking at students comments that have attend the course, their major complaint is slow and or intermittent Internet access. Since the Windows Intune lab content is a cloud based service, if connectivity is an issue, I suggest the instructor covers the material but skip the hands on labs.


    This courses looks at a number of tools that make up a robust management ecosystem for Windows 8 desktops. Many will be new to the students, but are used extensively in enterprises. They are also covered in the 70-688 exam.


    Thank you for all the hard work you do every day.

  • Hello,

    I'm getting prepared for the 70-688C (8.1) exam and truly speaking i was unable to get my hands on  something more than the new released, courseware. As a usual exam taker i'm aware that this material alone will not be helping me. Does Microsoft provide other sources ex: new books or videos to help preparing for the windows 8.1 exam?

    Took the 70-688B exam beginning of the year and didn't made it through as the exam was based on windows 8 and 8.1 questions (of course no materials were at that time available for studying 8.1). The true question is, will there be only windows 8.1 questions or a mix of win 8 and win 8.1?

    Thank you in advance for your answer and if i'm not on the appropriate forum to discuss this subject matter please redirect me, to the proper channel.
