    Not worth the price, save your money!

    You would think that being a Microsoft publication this would help you pass their test but it does not. The book has far to many typos, misleading information and down right errors. Using this book to prepare for the test is counterproductive. (a total waste of time) After missing some DNS questions on the exam I went back to the book which indicated I had answered correctly. Then I verified through other sources just to find out the book was wrong. Unfortunately the book uses the same misleading and intentionally vague language that is used in their tests which I had hoped would help me pass the test but it did not. Look elsewhere for book to help with the 70-291 test, this book will hurt more than help.

    Good, but too many typos.

    I also found too many errors, which made studying tough. It's distracting, particularly when working the practice questions to find out that some of the choices are typos. Or that some of the answers at the end of the chapter are typos. Most of the content is good, but the first reviewer had it right: Keep looking.

    Don't buy this book to help you pass the test

    If your looking for a book to help you pass a Microsoft Certification exam, keep looking. I have bought 2 Microsoft Press books now and both have had so many editing errors, big errors that I often thought they have not been proof read at all. The questions on the exam are very different from the ones in the books. I passed the exams, but after, I went home to lookup some of the questions I had trouble with to find that they were no where to be found in either book. And that 15% off coupon on the front of the book. In both Microsoft Press books I bought the coupons had already expired. There has got to be better books available.
