This is a total waste of time as a study guide for test takers. To summarize, each chapter or section refers you back to a Microsoft tech bulletin which contains all the information you can read for free right from Microsoft's web site. In fact, there is never enough information contained just within the book itself to adequately explain any presented topic. The topics are jumbled in an illogical order. The chapter titles and descriptions have no bearing on what is actually presented. The prose is often backwards, like trying to translate everything as spoken by Yoda. For instance, in describing a UNC path "UNC addresses contain the name of the host computer, preceded by two backward slashes and the shared folder name, separated by a backward slash". Properly it would be "a UNC path is defined by two backslash characters followed by the computer host name, followed by another backslash and the actual share or resource name." I use this as an example to show how poorly it is written. Further, while it gives "thought subjects" and some sample questions the answers are at the back of the chapter and printed without the original question. As a result you have to keep flipping back and forth to either confirm your answer or to read the question to see what they consider the correct answer and the reason(s) behind it. All in all it is a woefully pitiful attempt as a learning resource.
