    Hello all, I'm getting ready to take the 70-272 exam. I had a question about the materials I've been using to study. I bought the Microsoft Press book for the exam and read through it, including the questions at the end of the chapters. Does the book cover the material that I will be tested on? How do those questions compare in difficulty to what I will have on the test? Thanks in advance for your help!

    I have been impressed with all the MS press books I have used - they cover the objectives of the exam but you need to do the exercises along with it.

    I concur with Boyce, but the sybex books are also excellent for studying.

    Vashal - goto the MS website and download the syllabus or
    Clcik Here

    Make sure you have covered all the areas and if you still feel unsure get the MCDST Exam Cram to re-enforce your exam technique :biggrin

    I Like the ms press books, they do cover most of the objectives.

    However I do find that some of the stuff they way it is phrased in a sentence does not make sense at times. I find my self searching google for answers once in a while.

    I typically recommend MSPress and Sybex for Microsoft exams.

    I like the MS Press books.. used these to pass MCDST in a little of three weeks.. the measure-ups on them were particularly useful..

    Thank you all for your input. I'm taking a little vacation next week and wanted to try to get my first exam out of the way before then, so it looks like I'm taking it tomorrow. I didn't have time to get ahold of the Sybex book so I guess I'll be sticking with the MSPress book and the Measure-Ups. I'm a little nervous, but I've read the whole book and do well on the practice questions. Hopefully everything will go well tomorrow at the testing center!
