The book is very simplistic. Its set up in some sort of bullet point method. Hitting each topic covered on the certification in the most superficial way. It almost spoon feeds you the concept. To the point where I feel the exam tip section is literally what will be asked on the test. Kind of like an ethical test dump. Its supposed to be a upgrade test and yet the book is thinner than the any of the older 2008 books. I think the book is 340ish pages. I get it that I'm literally complaining about how this book makes passing the test easy. Yeah I guess like learning. This book is not for learning but passing the cert. It's not a bad book its just disappointing.
Great book, worth the money and WILL prepare you for a successful result on the test.
In addition there are only 3 sample questions for each study objective.
Even if you have recently passed your Windows 2008 certification you will probably be better off with another study guide that provides more in-depth coverage.
