    Hello Gentlemen,

    I'm John Maloney, an Assistant Professor at Miami Dade College where I teach technology classes and I have a question about the 70-697 exam and since you two have a certification prep exam book on this subject, I'm certain you can help me. We will be moving to the outcomes measured by this exam perhaps as early as next term and these outcomes include: 1) Deploy Windows desktops in an enterprise environment, 2) Manage user profiles and virtualization states, 3) Manage desktop and application settings, 4) Manage data access for Windows based devices, 5) Manage remote access solutions, 6) Manage identity, and 7) Plan desktop and device deployment. Obviously these are based on Windows 10 and my question is that I heard there were two exams – 70-697-1 and 70-697-2. I think one is more focused on deployment? Is there only one exam, or will there be two required? Thank you very much! John Maloney

  2. To John Maloney:

    There are two instructor-led courses, 20697-1 and 20697-2, but there is only a single 70-697 exam.

    Hope this information helps!
