    Has anyone used the book below? I'm looking to start studying for the 70-271 and would like to know if that book is worth getting. Thanks.

    Hi Tim,

    First of all welcome to CF. I used the normal MS Press books and the study technique in this guide http://www.certforums.co.uk/forums/thread26216.html

    Hope this helps.

    I would rate them as average, I would recommend either the MSPress book (not MOAC) or the Sybex book, myself.

    Modey (Dom) teaches the MCDST courses and these are the course books that he uses.

    Yup I used those books on my course, not through choice though. It's what the college bought. I have asked for different ones for next time around as I don't really rate them.

    I haven't seen the MS Press book, but I did think the Sybex was pretty good. Not exactly a big book, but seemed pretty good.
