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.
