    I decided to get the MCITP certification. Although I am MCDST certifed I decided to take the long way round doing the 2 rather that the shortcut of the 70-621 exam. I am undecided what books to study for the 70-620 exam so looked at these links listed below, so which is best?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/MCTS-Self-Paced-Training-Exam-70-620/dp/0735623902/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1225840291&sr=8-1

    or

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/MCTS-Microsoft-Windows-Client-Configuration/dp/0470108819/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1225840291&sr=8-2

    or

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Windows-Client-Configuration-Passport-70-620/dp/007149331X/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1225840291&sr=8-7

    So which is best?:):):):)

    I'm extremely biased, but I'd recommend the Sybex book. (I'm one of the authors) :)

    Umm... Parental Controls and Bitlocker are NOT missing from the Sybex book, so the person who wrote that is badly mistaken. At a minimum, they exist here:

    Parental Controls: pp. 415-418
    Bitlocker: pp. 251-252

    Well, I'll say that my opinion is biased as well, as I'm the other author of the book. 8)
