    Which 70-649 book did you guys use the office MS one or a different one?

    The 70-649 has some bad reviews on Amazon and seems to cover the 70-648 as well.

    Any input is appreciated.

    I used the MS Press books for my courses, admittedly I didn't do the 70-649 but the entire course. As far as 70-648 and 649 goes however, I would certainly expect a lot of cross over between the two exams, after all they are covering most of the same material, it's only 70-643 (applications infrastructure) that's different between the two exams.

    As long as you're aware that there are 'issues' with the book and you use additional study aids to confirm your knowledge then you should be fine with the MS Press books.

    I can't say whether or not the MS Press book for the 70-649 is any good, as that was one exam (in recent times) where I didn't use the specific MS Press book (you can read about it here). Saying that based on recent MSPress books that I've used, it can't be that bad :)
