    Hey guys,

    After reading some reviews on the amazon site I'm wondering whether or not to buy the SYBEX book over the MS Self-Paced Training Kit book due to technical inaccuracies in the latter. Although I'm considering buying both as the practice tests will be useful and I will be using these in conjunction with CBT Nugget vids.

    Has anyone used the above or alternatives they would recommend?

    Oh and Mods there is a typo in the description of this Forum: Technology Specialist (MCST)

    Cheers,

    Phil.

    I started to study for the exam, however other more pressing things have had to take priority.

    The things that I was using was:

    Microsoft SQL ServerĀ® 2008 Administrator's Pocket Consultant, Second Edition
    CBTNuggets and
    Preplogic 70-432 Mega-guide

    The Pocket Admin book is very indepth (for me it was), the CBT nuggets was good and the Preplogic guide was concise (but I don't think that it covers everything). One thing that I'd like to point out is that I haven't finished going thru the above 3 and I have not taken the exam, so I can't give my final verdict on the exam resources that I have.
