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.

SO MANY ERRORS... do not use as your only study source if you want to pass the exam!

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.

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.

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.

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.
