Training for Exchange Server 2010 70-662 Exam

Exchange Server skills have been in strong demand for a very long time.  There are a few reasons for this, firstly that Microsoft Exchange Server is the leading messaging and collaboration product in the IT industry today.  The other reason is that while a lot of people know a little about Exchange, not many have a real in-depth understanding of it.

I’ve sat and passed Microsoft exam 70-662, which earns you the MCTS credential for configuring Exchange Server 2010. When I sat the exam I had been using Exchange 2010 already, and was writing about it here on this website, but I still wanted to make sure I had all of the exam requirements covered.

To prepare for the exam I used the Exchange Server 2010 training kit from Train Signal.  There were a few strong points about this training package that attracted me.

First, the training kit includes video, audio and written lessons.  This was perfect for me because it meant I could watch the videos while I was at a computer, then listen to the lessons on my iPod when I was driving or taking the train to work.

I also knew that the lessons would be first class because they are written and delivered by Exchange MVP J Peter Bruzzese.

When I ordered the kit I actually started working through the lessons before the DVDs had arrived at my house thanks to the instant online access you’re given to the videos.

I was really impressed by the depth of coverage of the lessons.  Even though I’d already been working with Exchange 2010 there were some concepts that I hadn’t yet looked at, and some of the ones I had only gone a little way into on my own.

For me this kind of training has real value.  I don’t have a lot of free time, and even though I like self-training and discovering how to use technology on my own, when it comes to exam preparation I want to get ready fast and know that I’ve covered everything that I need to know.

By the way, I scored 978 on the exam, so I know this training helped.

If you want to pass exam 70-662 order the Train Signal Exchange Server 2010 training kit.

You can also get free beginner’s training on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 in the Exchange 2010 Boot Camp.
