Windows 7, Configuring

Exam 70-680

Windows 7, Configuring 5 Day Boot Camp

Windows 7 is considered by many IT Professionals to be one of Microsoft’s best operating systems. It is widely implemented in homes, offices, and corporations throughout the world; therefore it is essential for Administrators to be well-versed in implementing and supporting this OS. Windows 8 and “8.1” is, of course, available to the public, but the negative response from end-users and Admins after the release of Windows 8 indicates that there is no rush in upgrading and that Windows 7 will be the primary OS for at least a few more years.
