    Is it enough for some people, particularly those with a lot of experience with Windows Server 2003? Sure. Is it enough for you? I have no idea - only you can answer that. Study the concepts until you understand them completely, then go take the live exam.

    As BM says, it's a very subjective question. Many people who have taken the exam here have gone with more than one book in the past. Or at the very least, used things like TechNet which is a great online MS resourse when it comes to studying.

    My rule of thumb is to always have at least two books on a topic. Unless, of course, the topic is so obscure that only one book exists!

    I did the same but I did towards the end use the Exam Cram book aswell which is useful for some short sharp reminders
