    not as bad as some make it out to be

    this book could use improvement, and as i have found a couple of errors in here, this book has helped me get my MCDST credential. this book is best suited for someone who has prior experience in supporting users in windows XP and is not suited for the absolute beginner ( as is the exams). Those who tell you that this book is a waste of time are probably the ones looking for an easy way to pass the exams. with the combination of an exam cram book(those are well too), practice and this book, you will be ok to pass the exams a couple of months after practice and study. and to those who are looking for a quick way to get cerified, and blame a book when you can't pass an exam.. shame on you. you should know better than to blame your text for something you should know. also, be sure to skim through the book and others like it before purchasing.. this helps too.

    Horrible

    Do not buy this book if you expect well proofread material and a working CD. There are over 25 mistakes in this book and the CD doesn't work. Buy something that wasn't thrown together.
