    Hi,

    I've got the book and TBH im pretty impressed with it, (much betting than hauling a huge hardback book into work every day). However as with all exam cram and study books in general it wont be enough by itself. Most of the book is fairly well laid out and quite descriptive for its size, but again as its a small book it give alot lighter dusting over of all the topics rather than something a little bulkier.

    for the 290 so far I've managed to collect 5 books to revise for it as although i've been fiddling at home with server 2k3 for over a year I have the least experience with it, (I admin netware at work so i dont get to play with AD for my job yet).

    As someone that recently sat the 70-290 exam and passed am at least in a better position to comment:) I had the exam cram which was good but didn't help in the exam.

    To be on the safe side all you need for this exam is the MS press book 70-290 and go through the measure up exam questions then when confident book the exam.

    I always buy an EC(2) book as a second study book for all the exams I take (if available). They are usually full of pertinent material, have less crap, and serve as a nice second source. Plus, they have nice little review cards for rote memorization, and last-ditch efforts :biggrin

    I used an EC(2) book as a second study book for my 291. They are very good, the little review card was just right for some light revision before I set off to the test centre.
