    My work are paying for a couple of books for me to study for 70-271.

    I guess I will get the MS press book for one, what other book would u guys recommend ?

    The sybex books reviews on amazon are horrible :(

    If I had to get 2 books, it'd probably be MSPress and Sybex. Even if it gets 2 stars, the Sybex book may explain a topic in a way that helps you to better understand what the MSPress book is saying. You might not want to use Sybex as your only reference... but it might be a great complimentary reference...

    You could just use the 70-271 MS Press book and TechNet as your second 'book'.

    Keep the money and go to the pub! :biggrin

    Ms Press and then get an exam cram book.

    The flash cards are great for a last minute swat just before you go into your exam. Also comes with additional testing software.
