Do not by the 1st edition
By Photo Guy "photoguy" - December 1, 2010
I purchased this book in non electronic book version for class. Well written with lots of errors. Exercises are poorly researched. You'll waste a lot of time trying to do exercises that are incorrectly configured. Most students in my class felt like giving up on labs. What should have taken 25-30 minutes to accomplish...wouldn't work and required hours of research to find correct procedures. Commands are full of errors. Not worth the money. Wait for the next edition. Half way through semester, we received Errata with about 15 pages of corrections from the author. Stay away from this book! Wait til they get it right.

Let me tell you about my personal experience...

I did and I find out that there were 15 pages of errata from the author..Way too much and big mistakes from the publishers as well..\ To make everything worst..I found out way more than that on my own!
How can a reader say it's an excellent book, when it's pack of sensitive mistakes? To make everything more interesting , now it's the release of server R2, , way different commands from plain different server 2008, because a lot of the older commands are deprecated ( useless).
Conclusion: i have to study with this faulty guide, I bought the other Microsoft original book, I am using google and you tube like crazy to understand this book, I am reading the errata by my side, and trying to fix the mistakes he didnt post in his errata,( yes, making an... read more
Not worth it

I have passed the 70-290 exam using the sister book to this one (didn't like it), and since I already had this one from school, I gave it a go. I did not fair too well on the test, as I scored just under passing. I purchased the Microsoft 70-291 guide and it is so much better it is unreal. If you plan on taking the test, do not use this book as your only source of information. As a reference, it's pretty good, but not much else.
