    This book covered the topics of the exam

    I read a lot of reviews proclaiming how bad this book is and how unhelpful it was for the exam. I recently passed the exam utilizing this book, 1 year of Professional .NET experience, and a Bachelors Degree in Computer Information Systems. I read the book twice, went through a few of the exercises, and made extensive use of the practice test CD which comes with the book. I felt the practice tests where crucial to me earning a passing score on the 70-536 exam. The book is quite erroneous but this could keep you on your toes while studying so find and reference the errata webpage. A majority of errors where small and syntactical, not misleading information.

    Although there are errors in this book (you can view correction

    Although there are errors in this book (you can view corrections online), I do believe it has a wealth of information and the labs are very useful in getting your hands into all areas covered. The AD CS and AD RMS lessons do leave much to be desired but AD CS would take a 1000 page book to cover all areas. This exam does cover a lot of information and I do recommend you use other training materials. I also recommend that you take notes on flashcards and go back and review this book as well as memorize some items (i.e. DNS command-lines). Follow the book's references to TechNet and use that as a resource as well (I saw information on the test that was covered on TechNet but not in the book). This book is a valuable tool, especially for Admin's with little to moderate experience.

    Great Starter

    The books does an awesome job of covering the tops in a high level over view. I would say that this book would need a companion to help cover the JQuery Section. Best Source for the JQuery or JavaScript would be actual websites. Otherwise decent book for some one who has experience.

    not for exam

    This book does not prepare you for the exam. Yes it will cover the basics on infrastructure servers but it doest prepare you well enough for the exam. It needs to cover more in depth DNS DNS DNS as well as the cmdlets from the command line.

    Lacking

    Practices question given book and on the CD noticeably more simpler then appear on the exam. This is a very dry book, that won't give you the depth needed to pass the exam. It lack complexity of the exams, if it is main resource of study study of for this certification, than I hope you have a friend to talk about the subject matter with, because the contain in the book, is does not give you knowledge that you need to pass the exam. I would strong recommend finding a better exam study resources, preferably a source that has seen the exam.

    This CAN'T be the best book for preparing for the test.

    I just failed this test for the second time. IMHO there is a huge gap between what is taught in this book and what is on the test. I read the book cover to cover and did practice tests over and over, made notes dug deeper, for an entire week, full time, since failing the first time and I hardly closed the gap towards passing at all!

    I used the same techniques to get my MCAD and my MCSD a few years ago. I think I had to take only one test twice. (I've been a MS developer for 12 years.)

    The book has a lot of errors, but worse, the test has quite a few errors. I think that MS will be revamping this. Its just way messed up. I gotta get to the bottom of it w them on Monday. Aaaaaugh.
