Students pursuing a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) for Windows 10 will need to start with this 70-698: Installing & Configuring Windows 10 exam. Often referred to as the Help Desk course, this exam provides students with the essentials needed for a career in Information Technology in a corporate environment.

Exam 70-698 is the first exam required to earn the Windows 10 MCSA credential, and a primary course in most Help Desk Technician curricula. This text is comparable to exam 70-687 for Windows 8.1 or 70-680 for Windows 7. This exam covers local installation, configuration of core local services, and the general local management and maintenance of Windows 10. Although the focus is primarily on local scenarios, enterprise scenarios are also included, where applicable. Some cloud-integrated services are covered where appropriate, such as with Microsoft Passport. Microsoft Official Academic Course (MOAC) textbooks are designed for instructor-led classroom courses; the optional MOAC Labs Online facilitate hands-on labs from any location, locally or remotely. Available as an ebook with optional MOAC Labs Online or Lab Manual.
