83-640 is another exam code for Active Directory for Server 2008. One of the requirements of the MCITP Server Administrator and Enterprise Administrator, the new versions of MCSA and MCSE. I've never seen it noted as 83-640, the normal cert code is 70-640, but appears according to this link to have a "performance based" criteria as well.

What do you want to know about the certification? And why do you feel you need to take it over 70-640 - there's no benefit over 70-640 as both exams count toward the same objective.

Never mind. Forget it! First off 83-640 has repalced 70-640 in the united states so that is why. Second I wanted to find out about how hard it is, etc... from someone that has taken it.

If you can't answer a simple question then don't respond.

You never asked a question :? .

You just wanted someone that took the exam to PM you.

I've done some more digging and one of my former students just took the 83-640...and it's simulation based. And it's a dosey...if you don't know what you're doing.

However, if you know anything about Active Directory it's straight forward...known how to setup active directory, know DNS inside and out, understand group policy and RSOP, and know how to configure sites and intersite links, raise domain/forest functional levels, and setup trusts between forests.

If you've done the 70-294 (Active Directory on 2003) exam, this will just be the real-world application.

I wrote 83-640, there are 2 practical labs, and a bunch of multiple choice. I loved the practical part. I had been preparing for 70-640 until 2 days before my test when I realized the difference. I just ran through the practical tests in the book again and did great on the test.

Back in October I passed 83-640 and in November I passed 70-642. I don't know if I am going to do 70-646 or not. Studying is a real pain and I have such little time.
