    I'd seen that on the UK amazon site, is it out on the same date in the UK?

    If so then it could be the first as I've yet to see any and most aren't due until May/June/July

    PS - took a look at your website for more info but it's a little sparse

    No idea about UK release dates. I remember when the Mike Meyers A+ All-in-One guide came out, it was cheaper and quicker to buy it from Amazon.com and have it shipped to the UK.

    Info is sparse because we don't have any practice exam products available yet. They're "cooking". :)

    Will do, it's the first 70-620 cert book that's available so far as I'm aware. Most seem to be released in May, June, July so hopefully I'll have it all done and dusted by then

    First look at the MS objectives and it looks a lot easier and less in depth than the 70-270

    I'm glad to see that Ian's still writing. Although it's aging, I still consider his Windows 2000 TCP/IP Black Book to be a classic. :D

    I've been in contact with the editor at Sybex and he's agreed to send me a copy of Michael and Josh's book MCTS: Microsoft Windows Vista Client Configuration Study Guide: Exam 70-620 when it is published...hey! That's later this month. :D

    LOL. Thanks. The difference is that Ian's book is great and mine...well, let's just say it was my first book and I didn't really know what I was doing. :oops:

    No, I don't think so... trial copies haven't come in previous versions of Sybex's books.

    I'd have a word with the author to see if you can get a decent discount :D

    I've not used Sybex books before so not really too familiar with their format (if they use similar for all their books)

    I like the 'Exam Essentials' round up at the end of each chapter which enables you to ensure you know that stuff inside out

    Just need to decide whether I start the 620 now and do it in tandem with the CWNA which I started 10 days ago or do them one by one.
