Another day with some hours of preparation for the 70-649. Although I have enough resources to keep me company until August 3rd, I do still spend some time looking for real gems (and keeping a tap on the buzz for this wave of beta tests). It was through Technorati and Elan Shudnow’s Blog that I learned about Keith Comb’s Blahg. This particular nerd on the grid has a series of Screencasts (currently 5, with a duration between 5 and 18 minutes) on Windows Server 2008. From the looks of his blog, he’ll frequently pour out useful info, so his feed is added to my reader (and blogroll).

What did I do besides watching Keith’s screencasts? I compared the skills being measured between 70-648 and 70-649 (and thus added some topics to the list), have been reading through the reviewers guide and watching the IPv6 white paper as downloaded webcast (sit back and relax). I can recommend the downloaded version, it's easy to pause and if needed go back a slide, very welcome as it is nearly two hours of information. Second tip is about IPv4, if you feel your IPv4 kowledge is sub-optimal, first review your IPv4 stuff. It's on the skills list too and the webcast refers quite a bit to your IPv4 knowledge. From the webcast I learned there are parts of the white paper itself I will read for further understanding.
