  1. After looking at the prerequisites for the 70-685 exam, I see that the 70-680 cert is a prerequisite. My lead IT gave me the tools to prepare and schedule the 70-685 exam, but I don’t have the 70-680 cert. I do have the equivalent for Windows XP Configuration. I have already paid for the exam and am scheduled to take it. Does the Windows XP Configuration give me the prerequisite for the 70-685 exam? Unfortunately, I am to take the exam tomorrow. :-(

  2. @Steven, If you are definitely in prod environment and you are confident about yourself and experience. You should go ahead and take it. Answerinf 42 questions could earn you your MCITP.
