Exam 70-680: TS: Windows 7, Configuring

This appears to me as the general everyday engineers exam to do. Here's the Microsoft gumf:
Candidates for this exam operate in computing environments that use Microsoft Windows 7 as a desktop operating system in an enterprise environment. Candidates should have at least one year of experience in the IT field, as well as experience implementing and administering any Windows client operating system in a networked environment.

Candidates should be able to install, deploy, and upgrade to Windows 7, including ensuring hardware and software compatibility. Additionally, candidates should be able to configure pre-installation and post-installation system settings, Windows security features, network connectivity applications included with Windows 7, and mobile computing. Candidates should also be able to maintain systems, including monitoring for and resolving performance and reliability issues. Candidates should have a basic understanding of Windows PowerShell syntax.
Interesting that Powershell is requested! A good thing I believe, a bit of scripting is really useful to know and you will always come across it on pretty much any type of rollout / support.

So probably the easiest exam of the 3. Will probably do for most people unless you want to be a real hardcore export I suppose!

Also worth noting, completing this exam will count as credit towards:

• MCITP: Enterprise Administrator

• MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7

• MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7

I shall be looking at what exactly these exams are next! I'm assuming they are the new version of the MCSE.

Feel free to post/comment.
