    I've just realised that there are 2nd Edition's due for all the MS Press books for the MCITP EA certification.

    I was wondering if anyone who owned the original 1st Edition of the MCITP Self-Paced Training Kit for EA could provide a list for me on all of the missing content from the original training pack based on the content of Server 2008 R2.

    I'm thinking of buying myself a copy and wanted to make a decision as to whether or not to wait for the 2nd edition's of the books.

    Thanks

    Steven

    I bought the whole set end of last year but what with family life etc getting in the way I have not got very far with them (better get them on ebay quick before they become worthless). There is always the "mastering server 2008 r2" book to wet your appetite if you cannot wait that long

    Not necessarily worthless just missing a good bit of content now so you have to be careful with things like system specs dont change between 2008 and 2008 r2

    Not really. All of the revised exam objectives can be found on the MS website and details on the new features of R2 can also be found on the MS website.
